Google Software Engineer Interview Question

I interviewed in Los Angeles, CA and was asked:
"I can't go into details about the problems. But I wish I had studied my graph algorithms a little more closely. Make sure you know your big-O algorithm classifications. Almost every interviewer asked me something to do with that."

And some books that I found helpful:
 - Cracking the Coding Interview by Gayle Laakmann (http://www.valleytalk.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/CrackCode.pdf)
 - The Algorithm Design Manual by Steven S. Skiena (http://cad6.csie.fju.edu.tw/ecp100/Books/Springer.The%20Algorithm%20Design%20Manual.pdf)
 - Programming Interviews Exposed: Secrets to Landing Your Next Job by John Mongan and Noah Suojanen (Sorry don't have a link handy)
 - Programming Pearls by Jon Bentley (Again, no link. I imagine Amazon or Barnes & Noble would be a good bet)
 - Cormen/Leiserson/Rivest/Stein: Introduction to Algorithms
