Название: Programming challenges
Авторы: Skiena S.S., Revilla M.A.
This book provides programming challenges from UVa in a topical manner which is a nice way to study certain topics; it provides some helpful hints on the challenges. The only shortcomings come in the preparation to the programming challenges, I felt they were rushed and not very complete, true you could easily write a couple thousand pages on the topics covered, but I thought there should at least be a complete algorithm breakdowns to the problems presented, I'm not talking about code, but at least some approaches. Example, in chapter 2 there is a 5 page (plus or minus) introduction to containers (mainly stacks) and then several challenging problems that didn't necessarily require the review the book just presented. For the most part this is a very helpful book when I was preparing for the ICPC, but could have been a little better.
