Past 1 year,
479. Largest Palindrome Product
736. Parse Lisp Expression

They are in the top 20 questions sorted by frequency

Really? Apple interviewers expect candidates to come up the solution and code up ? Especially that Lisp parsing , why don't you just turn down my resume ?

Apple guys, do you ask interviewee these questions? Do these questions really distinguish from different candidates?

  • Fuck them just memorize, if the lottery hits , you can just solve and forget. Tech hiring is fucked up but we can not do much

      If you memorize even a slight change in question will screw up.
      Don't do it.

    When I see a hard question I feel like they don’t really want to hire anybody.
    Just a check mark they did an interview and will hire a cheap contractor from Infosys

    Apples questions are actually more closer to real life applications and domain specific than fang.

    Leet code questions are actually not common from what I’ve heard

      I mean do prepare data structures and algorithms but the focus is not on esoteric algorithms and fancy stuff

      You should be able to apply data structures (graphs trees linked lists) but the problems will mostly have some real life use.

      Agree with @wot.hgj. Most teams at Apple ask questions related to the use case which they might have encountered unlike other FAANG who just asks LC hard to satisfy the hiring standards even though that solution won’t be needed anytime to implement.

      OP
      Don't know. But those questions were tagged in LC and have pretty high frequency. I am curious do people really ask or got asked these questions?
