How much is an ideal time to complete each test ? The material does not specify any hard limit .

    I've seen half an hour, an hour, and a day. I wouldn't spend more than an hour

      That is the expectation, yes. You should be able to hack together something simple quickly if you have experience. It'll be crude, but something

      Just looked up the samples from the book on the site. From what I saw, 30 minutes is far more than enough for a useful analysis. You can always do more with research, building a dashboard, pulling external data, make the deliverable pretty, but that's not the goal. Your time isn't free, don't be a sucker

    Here's data, pandas, clean, fit curve, make profound statement in plot, send back. Talk about how you could do super advanced stuff like ensembles, fit lots of curves and average

    I spent 4 hrs roughly on the DS Algo challenge. I was given 72 hrs but did not want to spend that much time on it. I will feel bad if I didn’t make it after spending a lot of time on it. Simply replicate the process I would normally go through for my daily job. Hope I will clear the challenge

    Is there a site like leetcode to prepare for these DS challenges as well ? I find that my prep is lacking in this area..
