The book did not trigger the interest of some of the kids that I knowAs for the content the treatment of the algorithms and data structures that are IS GOOD FOR
AN INTRODUCTORY good for an introductory uite a few pictures along with walk throughs and no INTRODUCTORY good for an introductory uite a few pictures along with walk throughs and no Easy to grasp Also it can be a uick readThis could xcite some kids about algorithms and data structures The CS Detective is a fun book for learning about algorithms and performance It s not language specific and it is En plein coeur easy to read The book uses a story to tie together the algorithms The story is about a detective who needs to find out who stole documents It s actually a good storyThe analogies while introducing the algorithms are very well thought out I like the actual maze for back tracking and the array cart for transporting animals There are fun references sprinkled throughout like the Brazen Booleans want to guess that type of answers they give And the Port of USB There were also some references that are nice for parents reading this with a child Intro to Turtle Graphics The detective meets some fun characters like a wizardWhile I knew most of what was in the book I hadn t learned or had forgotten about iterative deepening so I learned something newI read this book so I could recommend it to teenagers starting out with algorithms It definitely fit the bill I think adults wouldnjoy it as well It s like Head First fun to read and The Bookshop on the Shore easy to retain the info Then there s the interest to go read a harder book The first half of this book is provided online by the publisher so you can decide for yourself if you like the styleDisclosure I received a review copy of this book from the publisher for reviewing it on behalf of CodeRanch. Ing twist to learning algorithmsFollow Frank’s mission and learn The algorithms behind best first and depth first search iterative deepening parallelizing binary search and Basic computational concepts like strings arrays stacks and ueues How to adapt search algorithms to unusual data structures The mostfficient algorithms to use in a given situation and when to apply common sense heuristic methods. ,
Pretty good book that gives some insight into some of the in my opinion most boring concepts to learn I picked up this book because I thought it might be
helpfulto use with my lementary kids It would be over their heads The story was at best Obviously it was a bit forced to cover the different search strategies in programming However I do feel like I learned about search strategies Weird combination This book is different in the sense that it is an unusual combination of what is performed on modern computers with a low technology society with wizards and ffective spells The primary character is Frank Runtime and in a widely used plot device he is a disgraced former police detective that is now a hardened cynical private investigator There is a robbery at police headuarters and Runtime is recruited to hunt the perpetrators down It is another case where he can do things that down It is another case where he can do things that forbidden to the police As the investigation continues there are regular interludes where the algorithmic tactics mployed by Runtime are The Day Christ Was Born: The True Account of the First 24 Hours of Jesus's Life explained to the reader Most of the algorithms are search algorithms and somexamples are breadth first search backtracking and binary search While the xplanations are thorough nough to advance the plot of a detective novel they are not nough to be part of an in depth ducation program There is no mathematics that will be over the head of any reader The use of a society where technology is roughly at the middle of the PostgreSQL Server Programming - Second Edition eighteenth century and active magic is practiced is an amusing and uniue tactic for detective stories Therefore that aspect makes the storyntertaining worthy of reading by people with little to no interest in learning algorithms Meet Frank Runtime Disgraced Integrity Restored: Helping Catholic Families Win the Battle Against Pornography ex detective Hard boiled privateye Search The Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac, expertWhen a robbery hits police headuarters it’s up to Frank Runtime and hisxtensive search skills to catch the culprits In this detective story you’ll learn how to use algorithmic tools to solve the case Runtime scours smugglers’ boats with binary search tails spies with a search tree scapes a prison with depth first se.To Use With My Elementaryuse with my lementary It would be over their heads The story was
