    1. This book was the basis of one of my comprehensive exams for a PhD program. There is much emphasis on implementation: lots of discussion of data structures, etc. In my case we didn't need to know about data structures but did need all the algorithms, which the book does a good job of laying out, explaining, demonstrating. Can be long-winded, making it a little painful to read cover to cover.
