Have you ever... - Wanted to work at an exciting futuristic company? - Struggled with an interview problem that could have been solved in 15 minutes? - Wished you could study real-world computing problems? If so, you need to read Elements of Programming Interviews (EPI). EPI is your comprehensive guide to interviewing for software development roles. The core of EPI is a collection of over 250 problems with detailed solutions. The problems are representative of interview questions asked at leading software companies. The problems are illustrated with 200 figures, 300 tested programs, and 150 additional variants. The book begins with a summary of the nontechnical aspects of interviewing, such as strategies for a great interview, common mistakes, perspectives from the other side of the table, tips on negotiating the best offer, and a guide to the best ways to use EPI. We also provide a summary of data structures, algorithms, and problem solving patterns. Coding problems are presented through a series of chapters on basic and advanced data structures, searching, sorting, algorithm design principles, and concurrency. Each chapter stars with a brief introduction, a case study, top tips, and a review of the most important library methods. This is followed by a broad and thought-provoking set of problems. A practical, fun approach to computer science fundamentals, as seen through the lens of common programming interview questions. Jeff Atwood/Co-founder, Stack Overflow and Discourse

Sample Chapters: goo.gl/9aMqNm Table of Contents (Chapters): Organization of Chapters Introduction Networking Devices OSI and TCP/IP Models LAN Technologies ARP and RARP IP Addressing Network Routing TCP and UDP TCP Error Control TCP Flow Control TCP Congestion Control Session layer Presentation layer Network Security Application Layer Protocols Miscellaneous Concepts Networking and the Internet touch our lives in untold ways every day. From onnecting our computers together at home and surfing the net at high speeds to editing and sharing digital music and video, computer networking has become both ubiquitous and indispensable. Computer Networking continues with an early emphasis on application-layer paradigms and application programming interfaces (the top layer), encouraging a hands-on experience with protocols and networking concepts, before working down the protocol stack to more abstract layers. In total, there are 17 chapters in this book, and they include Application Layer, Transport Layer, Physical Layer, Data Link Layer, Medium Access Control Sublayer, and Network Security. Narasimha style of structured teaching helps the readers to grasp concepts easily. He begins by explaining the physical layer of computer hardware, networking, and transmission systems, after which he tackles advanced concepts pertaining to network applications. This book has become the dominant book for this course because of the authors' reputations, the precision of explanation, the quality of the art program, and the value of their own supplements. Salient Features of Book All the concepts are discussed in a lucid, easy to understand manner. A reader without any basic knowledge in computers can comfortably follow this book. Helps to build logic in the students which becomes stepping stone for understanding computer networking protocols. Interview questions collected from the actual interviews of various Software companies (and past competitive examinations like GATE) will help the students to be successful in their campus interviews. Hundreds of solved problems help the students of various universities do well in their examinations like B.C.A, B.Sc, M.Sc, M.C.A, B.E, B.Tech, M.Tech, etc. Works like a handy reference to the Software professionals.
Beginning in 2006, the Census Bureau embarked on a program to reengineer the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) to reduce its costs and improve data quality and timeliness. The Bureau also requested the National Academies to consider the advantages and disadvantages of strategies for linking administrative records and survey data, taking account of the accessibility of relevant administrative records, the operational feasibility of linking, the quality and usefulness of the linked data, and the ability to provide access to the linked data while protecting the confidentiality of individual respondents. In response, this volume first examines the history of SIPP and reviews the survey's purpose, value, strengths, and weaknesses. The book examines alternative uses of administrative records in a reengineered SIPP and, finally, considers innovations in SIPP design and data collection, including the proposed use of annual interviews with an event history calendar.
