Onsite tomorrow

I have a onsite for LinkedIn tomorrow, have been preparing on/off, I did around 90 questions on leetcode since last 3 months. Even though I understood almost all of them, it's becoming really hard to remember all the gotchas and tricks in many of those questions... Many times it also hard to remember all the techniques. Even though I did understood the ideas / data structures / algorithms. Getting really worried 😬 I just feel it's an overkill for busy professionals and people with family life.

Any suggestions?

    The idea is not to remember it all but to develop the mindset to solve them. So don’t worry about remembering or recalling it. Just give it your best shot tomorrow.

      This one I can crack with backtracking, since I did similar yesterday 😀

  • Just take some deep breaths, concentrate and carry on. Good luck. Let us know later how that went.

    Keep calm , write all teatcases before coding .. if u can’t optimize start with brute force .. btw how was ur phone screen

      Just a heads up. You're likely to be asked max stack AGAIN.
      Source: I had to ask the interviewer if he really wants me to solve it again...

      If you did all lc lnkd tags, you'll be fine. For general hire, that's pretty much what they have in the problem set. Even for sys design it's all famous questions.

    Only suggestion is pay attention to what recruiter has said about each interview session. If there a session which is all about coding, which checks you coding style then make sure you are prepared for that.

      Yeah there are 2 coding interviews, one for style/organization of program and other for general data structures and algorithm...

      Hey LinkedIn friend, I nailed all interviews specially system design and communication; but out of 4 coding questions, I bombed one question. What are my chances ?

    It’s a good signal telling you you’re not ready yet. Some people get it quicker, some need more time and repetition until “remembering” becomes “knowing” instead. Reschedule and add new interviews in-between if linkedin is where you’d like to go

      Not sure it will be good idea to cancel a day before, recruiter told me not to do that explicitly 😀

      Sure, at least you’ll know for next time. Good luck to you! Just relax (and practice trees and recursion).
