As you get ready for your interviews, consider these suggestions:
»»Write Code on Paper: Most interviewers won’t give you a computer and will instead expect you to write code on a whiteboard or on paper. To simulate this environment, try answering interview problems by writing code on paper first, and then typing them into a computer as-is. Whiteboard / paper coding is a special skill, which can be mastered with constant practice.
»»Know Your Resume: While technical skills are extremely important, that’s no reason to neglect your own resume. Make sure to prepare yourself to give a quick summary of any project or job you were involved with, and to discuss the hardest and most interesting problems you encountered along the day.
»»Don’t Memorize Solutions: While this book offers a representative sample of interview questions, there are still thousands of interview questions out there. Memorizing solutions
is not a great use of your time. Rather, use this book to explore approaches to problems, to learn new concepts, and to practice your skills.
»»Talk Out Loud: Interviewers want to understand how you think and approach problems,
so talk out loud while you’re solving problems. Let the interviewer see how you’re tackling the problem, and they just might guide you as well.
