    Dear all,

    I have been searching for an Algorithm book which groups common kinds
    (such as: recursion is most useful in these kinds of problems, sth like
    that ) of problems and explains them with example code. And including
    some exercises to practice those algorithms on, maybe simple, some
    problems and of course providing the answers as well.

    Regards.

    I started with Dr Knuth's series -- The Art of Computer Programming.
    Definitely top-knotch.

    Another popular (smaller) book is:
    Algorithms in C++ (R. Sedgwick), Ed., Addison-Wesley

    This would be more appropriate on comp.programming.

    I haven't used this book, but based on its title and description you
    might consider: "The Algorithm Design Manual" by Steven Skiena.

    I'd recommend reading through this thread:

    It's not terribly long, but still gives a couple of
    rather different viewpoints.
