Is knowledge of Java required before taking a data structure and algorithms class?

It's impossible for us to know what is being taught in the course. You didn't even mention if it was Java based. Check the course's prerequisites.

That said, a lot of colleges in the Northeastern United States tend to use java (sometimes cpp) as the pre-reqs for data structures, so if you're there, then it's likely (I've been looking for colleges...)


But yeah, the pre-reqs will tell you, if the PR is a cpp class, you're gonna be using cpp, if it's java, then that, if it says VB, run away in terror though.

*Moved to Student Campus*

Depends on the class. Most Data Structures I classes focus more on programming than the upper-level Algorithms and Data Structures classes. People who do well with programming, especially in the Data Structures I class, tend to do better than those non-programmers. That being said, Data Structures have been known to throw a lot of programmers for a loop (pun intended ;)).
