University of Minnesota
Fall 19: CSci 5421 - Adv. Algorithms & Data Structures


Note:  Any Exercise/Problem numbers specified in the homework assignments are with respect to the 3rd edition of the Cormen text.

Here are some practice questions for the exams. These should give you an idea for the types of questions to expect. The actual exams will, of course, be different (for example, there will be fewer questions--expect up to four), so don't rely on just these practice questions. The best way to study for the exams is to review your lecture notes and the solutions for the homework assignments, and to work out these practice problems and additional exercises/problems from the text. Good luck!
