And some books that I found helpful:
 - Cracking the Coding Interview by Gayle Laakmann (
 - The Algorithm Design Manual by Steven S. Skiena (
 - 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)
