Learn the basic data structures and algorithms. Learn the basic concepts and terminology to build your vocabulary of programming.
Step 2 : Code
Code the representation and operations for the data structures in your list.
Step 3 : Coding Drills
Design coding drills and practice the algorithms in your list.
Step 4 : Analyze
Analyze the time and space complexity of your code.
Step 5 : Test
Test your code using test cases. Debug and fix any bugs.
Step 6 : Take Notes
Take notes to help you review later. Learn from your mistakes.
Step 7 : Pros and Cons
After you have learned about the data structures in your list, compare the pros and cons of using similar data structures.
Step 1 : Understand the Problem
Understand the problem statement before you design the algorithm.
Step 2 : Identify the Approach
Identify the data structure, algorithm and strategy to solve the problem.
Step 3 : Outline the Solution
Outline the solution at a high level.
Step 4 : Identify the Obstacles
Identify the obstacles to solving the problem. Revisit your study materials to gain a deeper understanding of the concepts. This is a top down approach to assimilation process.
Step 5 : Work Backwards
Work backwards from the solution. Design and practice coding drills. Practice coding the solution and understand the solution. This is a bottom up approach to assimilation process.
Step 6 : Test
Test your code with test cases.
Step 7 : Analyze
Analyze the time and space complexity of your solution.
Step 8 : Take Notes
Review your solution and reflect. Take notes on where you made mistakes and review your solution.
Step 1 : Form Links
Connect the dots between problems you solved in walk phase.
Step 2 : Problem Types
Solve problems by category.
Step 3 : Recognize Patterns
Summarize common patterns used for solving problems within the same category.
Step 4 : Take Notes
Take notes on where you made mistakes to help you review later.
Step 5 : Practice
Practice articulating your solution.
Step 6 : Evaluate Progress
Form a study group. Take mock interviews.
