I am preparing for fang type company interview. Targeting junior engineer position( equivalent to google L4). Wanted to ask whether any of you literally memorized important info to shorten the interview prep process?
Leetcode, hackerrank all is good, and I am doing few questions everyday, but I am not very fluent in implementing some basic ds/algo (e.g. Hashtable , quick sort, etc). I can code it but take some time (which is definitely more than 15-20 mins).
I am thinking to prepare index cards to memorize key learnings regarding system design and basic ds/algo.
Anyone tried this approach? Any general feedback?
it can work
but if you do a decent # of LCs you’ll naturally “memorize” fundamental building blocks anyway
