Introduction to Automata Theory, Languages, and Computation (Hopcroft, Motwani, and Ullman)

Very lucid and well-presented overview of regular languages. Probably would also work as a set of examples of clearly-reasoned proofs for people needing some examples.

Haven't read Code Complete yet, but Cormen et al and Sedgewick are well worth your time. I would suggest that you take a look at the Roughgarden and Sedgewick Coursera courses at some point as well. Roughgarden mostly relies on Cormen, and his videos are left up between runs of the course, so if you don't care about the credit you can run through those and try the problems any time. The two courses complement each other nicely.

What am i reading lately?

Finishing up with Hopcroft, Motwani, and Ullman on Automata Theory. Reading that one very carefully, there's a lot of fun proofs in there that are worth chewing on.

On deck, probably some linear algebra. A few friends want to put together a study group, and I could use some review and some further depth. Thinking about good problem sets to play with, if anyone has any suggestions for good domains. (yeah, I know about the machine learning and image manipulation uses... any other good ones?)

I'm currently reading Experimental Methods in RF Design. If you're deep into electronics and you want to get into RF I highly suggest you to grab this book.
