I did the first 100 most frequent questions for each, is that sufficient enough?

    The range is from 0 to infinity. Facts.

      Thats why it goes up. People think less qualified candidates pass the interview; hence, expect better and quicker answers with good communication skills along with showing the knowledge. It will continue going up and require more study time. Older folks will get screwed if not in management.

    the number of questions you solve is meaningless, some people get offers having solved 0 leetcode while others solve 900 and fail

      @batmobile leetcode is just the name of the website. What a worthless point to make lol

    So you’ll just leetcode. That’ll work for fang may be but if you’re unlucky then you’ll have hard time explaining OS fundamentals in other companies for instance. So sure be a code monkey but don’t assume that this is all it takes.

      Nonsense. You obviously need to solve a bunch of puzzles when it is time to entertain the interviewers on the whiteboard

    There is no magic number, just be able to solve a hard in 30 minutes and explain your process.
    Only you know how good you are.
    My advice is do a mock with a friend of recent questions from the discuss section on LC and have them grade you. Do this a bunch of times till you feel ready.

    Read epi and ctci thoroughly along with some good ds book. Should be enough. People have been getting into faang even before leetcode was popular.

    Competitive programmers honed their skills even before hackerrank existed. Just saying.
