Google onsite in 45 days

I have my Google onsite after 45 days.

I have solved 200 LC, mostly mediums and hards. Cleared Amazon interview with ease. However, I still feel I am underprepared for Google interview and don’t feel very confident.

How should I utilise my time to be better prepared?

Things I can focus on:
* More LeetCode
* InterviewBit
* Study EPI
* Mock interview practice
* GeeksForGeeks

Can someone please advise what should be my approach?

    I would honestly not even bother trying to do more problems, and instead revisit ones you solved, see if you can solve them again using pen/paper or whiteboard, write your own test cases, be able to discuss space/time complexity confidently, and think about how you might be expected to solve a follow-up to the question or discuss other ways to solve the problem w/ pros and cons, including how to handle the problem at scale.

      OP
      Amazon onsite was easy for me as I was prepared and had solved a variety of questions. Mostly standard questions from LC medium. Yes I’ll turn down Amazon offer

      Awesome 👍 what TC did they offer? Did you practice with whiteboard for Amazon? I have to schedule my Google interview too but not sure whether to schedule it after my other interviews or before as I have been reading posts about Google interview being traumatic experience and I don't want it to affect my confidence for others!
      Also you have 45 days so I would suggest you to read "Designing data intensive applications" book. It will be very handy for system design questions.

  • Do Google tagged all medium and popular hard questions for sure. simultaneously schedule face to face mock interviews with frens. Also practice on whiteboard (very imp). Keep last 1 week for revision.
    You are on the track. Dont worry. All the best! 😊

    Leetcode Google tagged questions should be good starting point.

    OP would you be up for doing mock interviews. I am at the same place as you in terms of LC progress. I want to do mock interviews that are resemblent of the Google and Facebook interviews-where we would try to solve 2 or 3 problems per session and subsequent problems would be twists o the original question. Also we wouldn't do well known problems. DM me if you're up for it
