    Be comfortable with the most difficult topics (eg DP) and start solving the easier ones from that category. Then move to next difficult topic. Once you are confident, solve easy medium randomly from top 100 Interview questions filter. Then when you are ready filter by company you are interviewing

      Definitely this. Instead of just going through random problems, choose a topic and master that by doing a lot of problems then go on to a different topic.

    If the questions were fundamental CS then the expectation is for you to know them like the back of your hand. 65 mins is too long imo

      They look mostly for craftsmanship in design and code. Practice optimizing your solutions

    I recently gave my phone interview woth LinkedIn and I felt career their is really promising after reviewing the progress made by some of the people. Although I solve both the problems they rejected me saying I came up with the solution very slow. Any tips on how to get up with speed? Any Comments from LinkedIn people?

      Practice. What questions they asked, what was your solution, and how long to find it?

      Question related to binary tree and strings mapping. I solved both the problems in 1hr 5 mins. Stuggled a bit with BT a little bit although I solved that problem earlier.
