Problem Solving for Coding Interviews
by Karthik Naidu
Publisher: GitBook 2015
Number of pages: 285
An engineer's notes on problem solving. Ideally suited as practice material for coding interviews. This started out as a collection of interview questions and solutions that I accumulated over the years. I've scoured through several forums like Careercup and Glassdoor. While they're an excellent source for questions, finding good solutions with explanations is quite hard. Hence I decided to start preparing my own solutions and sharing it with others. Each post has 5 sections: problem statement, examples, algorithm, code, test cases and a discussion on time-complexity.

Learn to program a computer without the jargon and complexity of many programming books. This book engages through media and then introduces the concepts of structured programming. You will learn to program as you make animations and games.
by Jon Bentley - Addison-Wesley Professional
The book focuses on choosing the right algorithms and on showing how to solve problems effectively. Each chapter frames a particular programming task (sorting numbers, creating anagrams, counting the words). Code examples are written in C and C++.

Read this book if you need a much deeper understanding of programming: the need to carefully structure a program to avoid being overwhelmed by its complexity, or the need to insure reliability beyond what can he achieved by debugging.
