A binary search tree is a unique data structure that allows for highly performant insert and lookup operations because, for every value stored in the tree, there is precisely one position where that value can exist. Knowing how to work with this data structure is an essential tool for your software engineering toolkit.

In this course, you'll explore the various operations that you can perform on a binary search tree. You'll recognize how the binary search tree works for efficient insert and lookup operations and how to implement the code for these operations.

You'll move on to identify the constraints on the nodes of a binary search tree data structure. Finally, you will learn how to write code for various problems that involve binary search trees.
