Hi anyone would be kind enough to share with me interview kickstart detailed syllabus? Like what topic they cover each week in the program? I know they posted their curriculum on their website, but it just lists all topic they cover. I am interested in looking at their weekly schedule.

I am an intern who wants to join FAANG, but has to pay back education loan as well. Thinking whether to spend money in IK program.

This would be great help for me. Thank you 🙏🏻

      Haha, nice assumptions, Uber. Did you do the course yourself?

      I am already making $$ at G, doesn't need IK money.

      Alright, I have realized that it is very ineffective to argue with people since most of us are close-minded ego-centric doofuses. No amount of evidence generally change someone's mind.

      Uber you are free to believe whatever you want. I can't prove a negative. I cannot show you the checks i am not getting from IK. :D

    ** I wish I had known what I am going to post when I was thinking to put so much money in IK program, so posting here (and at few more forums/posts) for others, hoping it helps atleast one person ****

    If you give your best, below two courses are more than sufficient to prepare you for next programming interview ( I believe give much better understanding than what IK promising ). And all this comes in fraction of cost. I paid for these courses and learning a lot. So I am telling you from first hand experience.
    1. udemy: master the coding interview from andrei neagoie
    (Nice overview of questions , negotiations, process etc )
    2. Coursera : ds and algo specialization from university of California San Diego
    (Practice coding questions in exactly same manner as professor teaching, and you will be good to go)

    The money that you save by not buying IK services, you can use to buy yourself time and use that time to practice coding interviews.

    Hope it helps!

      Dear Intel - Qwepo

      The IK course is. It about only content. There are 1000s of videos online and spread across the web that you can do for free. Our course is about preparing you for interviews by building your core fundamentals and by helping you simulate interview situations. The course is about learning LIVE from practitioners, doing LIVE tests, getting INDIVIDUALLY coached on technical and Behavioural aspects and undergoing extensive mock interviews with DETAILED FEEDBACK..
      Just placing this here so folks get a fair representation of what we offer

    Uber - thank you for your time and opinion. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, and Internet makes it easy to voice one. Informed opinions are better than armchair sentiments but hey it's the Internet, what can I do?

    I'd at least urge you to depart from the thought that 'If you had to pass you will pass and if you had to fail you will fail'. This is exactly the kind of sentiment that holds back people in life. Please don't discourage people who are working hard to elevate themselves.

    Please come dig deeper into what we do, how we do, why we do, why such brilliant instructors spend a lot of their valuable time with us, and why nearly 1500 people have staked their careers with us over last 4 years. And why even companies have started to work with us.

      I understand your defensive perspective and passion behind IK results.

      I’m curious by nature, but what companies have started working with you? If that to invasive, can you at least share what capacity and/or service you’re providing? I’m trying to think of a win/win situation, but my mind isn’t seeing the picture and having run large recruiting teams at Y! + partnering with Leadership coming up with assessment curriculums, for the life of me, I can’t see any situation in which my Product Recruiting Teams would engage you?

      Also, I believe there’s a line you draw, when preparing for an on-site interview, whether it’s ethical preparation or not.
      I’ll be honest, you guys live in the gray, so I’ll let others judge, while I kick up my partnerships with Hacker Rank + Collab Edit. lol
      I am one of the few leaders that require my team to prep candidates, beyond simple “Hey study up on CS Fundamentals: Data Structures + Algorithms”, but my team breaks down format, areas of coverage and answers questions (my interview teams with be part of the REQ kickoff and will be assigned a core skill set (or topic like frontend or backend or networking or willingness to still write test scripts or python (OO) whiteboard or yada yada.
      If you get a degree and a recruiter gives you the prep information above, you shouldn’t need to hire a 3rd party.

      I’m on the fence on all this....although most my recruiting is heavy Product Teams (Senior or higher engineers), I have a passion for early career hiring and if I didn’t hate to travel I’d run a University team.....anyways, if the IK founders want to talk with me over coffee (stealth-mode! lol), I’m happy to meet up. My company is about to blow up, so if there is a win-win partnership to be had, in the guy to talk with.

      Good luck everyone....at the end of the day, we’re all just trying to find passion in our work + survive Silicon Valley together.

    OP - the course is NOT meant for internships. Please come back to us after you graduate, if you are still looking, of course.

      OP
      I am doing internship, and soon will be looking for full time job. But your fees is steep, and I have student loan to pay back. I am having hard time time to make decision. That's why I want to look at weekly schedule.

      I would be grateful if you can share your weekly schedule.

    Former IK alumni here. Do they still charge ~4500? It was 4500 when I did it and felt like it was well worth it.
