I have an onsite SDE interview scheduled in 3 weeks with Google. What should I prepare ?

I know leetcode is the resource, but I am not sure if I can solve 200+ problems in 3 weeks. I finished about 30 last month. - 2 hard , 5 med and 23 easy.

I have 3 years of experience.
Current TC : 115k

    Leetcode medium should help. Dont worry too much about hard ones. Probably a week before the interview try to go through about 20-25 hard ones that cover a range of topics.

    Ofcourse if there you feel like 3 weeks is not sufficient, might as well push it out by a week or two.

      Do I need to reschedule it now or after a week or two. They will book my travel next week. Will they reschedule after travel and hotel is booked?

      I would reschedule before travel is booked, otherwise you might be causing Google unnecessary cost

      Reschedule it before the recruiting assistant finalizes the interview date.

      Means do it on Monday. Push by 2 weeks if I were you, which lies on the same week as Jul 4th. You might get a free week.

      They ask hard and medium only. (1 hard most probably)

      If you don’t want to pay, leetfree is a good option.

    Most people with good CS fundamentals who got in were able to do so in 2-3 weeks studying 3-4 hours. Do as much as you can to refine your thinking and coding process and do not stress. Also from my and my friends onsites there was not even 1 question from leet but a few modified patterns from geekforgeeks

    I don't think LC easy will be of much help. Do more Mediums even more than Hards'

    Agree with some of the folks here. Study the basics like stacks, queues, trees and graphs. Along with some advanced concepts like dynamic, system design.

    I used cracking the coding interview and it helped more than leetcode, which is good once you have refreshed these topics and are ready to code independently.

    Why is your recruiter not helping you prep?

      Recruiter will only send like a standard prep template like skiena, crls, and things like data structures, etc.
