The knowledge of algorithms and data structures is universally applicable and is considered to be a must have skill.

This enables us to recreate humanity civilization from the very beginning.

Books are the central scope of knowledge but recently, there have been a massive burst of books which puts the reader in delima.

The following 4 books will help you in mastering algorithms and data structures and become a master in the field.

We have compiled the best books by understanding the feedback from thousands of students and researchers in the field who have gone through hundreds of books in their personal quest for knowledge.

Study the books in given sequence for maximum benefit. You can ask us any questions if you get stuck while going through the books at our forum. On average, it takes 1 year 4 months to master the given material.


1. Introduction to Algorithms, 3rd Edition (MIT Press) 3rd Edition by Thomas H. Cormen

This is the best book which will take you from a beginner to a competitive algorithmist. You will gain knowledge of the most algorithms and data structures that are used in day to day activities and prepares you through exercises for further advanced study.
