About Data Structures
Data structures provide a means to manage large amounts of data for use in databases and internet indexing services. Efficient data structures are key for designing efficient algorithms and obtaining maintainable software design.In this Computer Science course, you will start by learning basic data types, such as numbers, and gradually build a conceptual framework for organizing and managing efficient structures.

What You Will Learn
Various data structures
How to organize data efficiently
How to use appropriate data structures for representing, organizing, and manipulating data
How to create data structures using basic programming

Description
In this Learning Data Structures and Algorithms training course, expert author Rod Stephens will teach you how to analyze and implement common algorithms used. This course is designed for the absolute beginner, meaning no previous programming experience is required.
You will start by learning about the complexity theory, then jump into learning about numerical algorithms, including randomizing arrays, prime factorization, and numerical integration. From there, Rod will teach you about linked lists, such as singly linked lists, sorted, and doubly linked lists. This video tutorial also covers arrays, stacks and queues, and sorting. You will also learn about searching, hash tables, recursion, and backtracking algorithms. Finally, you will cover trees, balanced trees, decision trees, and network algorithms.
Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will be fully capable of analyzing and implementing algorithms, as well as be able to select the best algorithm for various situations. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
