Teaching algorithm and data structures with Python. Textbooks?
At Monash there is a plan to move first year programming and CS
courses away from Java. The second semester unit on introduction to CS
(algorithms and data structures) will be taught with Python, and I
have been asked about textbooks. If anyone here has direct experience
with any of the following books, I'll appreciate their comments.
Otherwise, I am guiding myself by amazon comments and, at some point,
we'll have to read the books (natch!), but it will be nice to cull
them beforehand and work with a shortlist.
