After overloading my classes one fateful semester in my college days, I ended up dropping my algorithms course and never taking it again.
I'd like to finally fix this by doing some self study, but I'm wondering how best to approach it.
I've got a few algorithm texts, notably the CLRS book and Skiena's book, and links to various online sources.
Should I read both books cover to cover? Read one? Just check out some online lectures? How would you do it?
Edit: I had trouble finding a question like this, hence the post. Sorry for the dupe. Good info in that other question too.
