I'm an engineer with decent understanding of algorithm and DS, I want to prepare for Google and Facebook interview, so I'm thinking should I read cormen algorithm book or just solve leetcode.
Im setting 3 months for this preparation.
Help is appreciated.

    I’ve started with InterviewBit. Just first day, but it’s what suits me. More structured than Leetcode

    Cormen is a reference work, not for reading through.

    I recommend starting with the Princeton Algorithms course, including the exercises and quizzes. Then, pick a book/website and start solving problems. I use Cormen as a reference if I need to dive deep into a topic.

    Decent understanding of algorithms and DS is already enough for Google interview.
