    it's mostly luck that you don't get some kuck with a huge ego interviewing you

    For Amazon -> 20
    For FG -> 400+
    For N -> Focus more on Concurrency and System Design.

      400+ for FG? Many FG engineers here claim much lower number, like 100 or so.

    I did roughly 80s and got Uber and Google.

    Strategy: couple question for each type of algorithms to warmup: string, graph, dp etc. Then focus on hard problems for 2 months (not necessarily LC, hackerrank is pretty good too), don’t time it, let yourself struggle a bit. Two weeks before the interview, mock onsite interviews with target company’s tag questions, time your answer.

    Caveat: this approach not quite work for Airbnb, FB. They require coding speed more. On the flip side, they repeat more often and consistent which make the bar roughly the same as G and U. Airbnb is easier to prepare since problem set is smaller (40 something?) but each question is slightly harder. I failed those two for not practicing enough.

      The list might not be relevant anymore. More than a year ago. Just check recent interview questions in Leetcode, purchase premium for one month. For hard problems, there’re a ton of it

    Amazon Eng

    I did ~40 for google, 20 for Microsoft, 60 for AWS.

    Difficult from hardest to easiest:
    - Microsoft (O365)
    - AWS (Rekognition)
    - Google (search adtech)

    Like someone else said, it’s 110% the kind of interviewer you get, as long as you can easily solve LC medium

    I never got the appeal of LC. Did just fine without tbh.
