To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was skeptical about buying this at first as I had been doing leetcode questions already in preparation for tech interviews. However, this book provides alot more than just problems and solutions. The most valuable lessons from this book are about how to approach a question in front of an interviewer, how to interact with hints from the interviewer to reach a solution and how to analyse/explain your solutions. This might not be as helpful for the online round of interviews but is invaluable for one-on-one interviews where interaction is as important as solving the question.
I’ve rated this as a four star as the book seems to be well written. I only got so far before I gave up. The reason for this is : I graduated and was looking for developer jobs and thought this book would be great! Perhaps it is great for someone with a few years experience that’s looking for a senior developer role. As a junior this was out with my skill set or knowledge l. The book is well written don’t get me wrong and you will learn a lot from it but I think it would require sitting down and making this a study book. No doubt I will go back to this in a few years when I have a far greater knowledge and can understand this
It includes all that a programmer needs to develope ar the time of entering google or any other high class comapny. It prepares upto the most reachest level. It includes all the plans to crack interviews of coding.
This book is great for computer science students or for anyone in a similar situation looking for a graduate job. I've used it to help me in securing jobs for my placement module as part of my degree (penultimate year) . It covers everything you would need to learn to prepare you for a serious interview with a large organisation such Google, Microsoft, IBM and Oracle etc... I've read it all and seen most of the examples come up in real interviews. Its very useful, I recommend reading it if you are serious in securing a role within a large software based organisation. Not only does it help with interviews but it will help you within university itself, considering you are a student. It covers various algorithms that most students will cover within university.

I used this book to help return to a senior Dev role after a few years working as a management consultant. Great explanation of concepts covering the main types of collections, data types and sorting algorithms. Each problems has a detailed answer provided in java with commentary explaining a good solution through to the most optimal (and explaining the trade offs to consider when evaluating different solutions).
