    I would say.. LC.. CCI i finished long back.. nothing worked.. Atleast i got one question from LC.

    BTW just checking if I am truly unfortunate human being.. Have bagged 150+ LC, mostly Medium and Hard.. after than most will fall in similar pattern.. but I could never crack Amazon MS.. Just wondering how people did before cracking em

    • Wondering how you didn't crack ms and Amazon after 150 LC. Were they asking much harder or different questions that you were unable to solve? Or were you able to solve the problems but still didn't get offers

      I never seen leetcode hard or a dynamic programming question in either an Amazon or Microsoft interview. (1 Amazon interview, got the job, 2 Microsoft interviews, got a job the 2nd time.)

      I have seen.. I faced.. someof the unimarginable questions.. Like desigb distrubuted page crawler to implementation of A* to solve some generic question

    I found Leetcode more useful mostly because of the discussion section - having multiple explanations of different approaches makes it much easier to understand solutions.

    Start with CTCI - great way to cover all topics and usually doesn’t take that long.
    After CTCI, start leetcode to dive deep and practice on certain topics or for certain companies.
