If you had 4 days to prep for system design, where would be the best place to spend your time? Grokking System Design?? System Design Primer (GitHub)??

I have 1 YoE and I'm wondering what these companies are really expecting in terms of depth or if the interviews will be more object oriented. Thanks!

    Designing data intensive applications is pretty good if you have time.

      OP
      I'd say it's better. It's a 1 year contract with full FB benefits. You do two 6 month rotations on different teams. 90% get converted to mid range E4 afterwards. The comp for rotational is 145k base, 60k sign on non-negotiable. I think it's an amazing opportunity tbh
