Cracking the Coding Interview: 189 Programming Questions and Solutions - No Cost Library

Cracking the Coding Interview: 189 Programming Questions and Solutions

I am not a recruiter. I am a software engineer. And as such, I know what it's like to be asked to whip up brilliant algorithms on the spot and then write flawless code on a whiteboard. I've been through this as a candidate and as an interviewer. Cracking the Coding Interview, 6th Edition is here to help you through this process, teaching you what you need to know and enabling you to perform at your very best. I've coached and interviewed hundreds of software engineers. The result is this book. Learn how to uncover the hints and hidden details in a question, discover how to break down a problem into manageable chunks, develop techniques to unstick yourself when stuck, learn (or re-learn) core computer science concepts, and practice on 189 interview questions and solutions. These interview questions are real; they are not pulled out of computer science textbooks. They reflect what's truly being asked at the top companies, so that you can be as prepared as possible. WHAT'S INSIDE? - 189 programming interview questions, ranging from the basics to the trickiest algorithm problems. - A walk-through of how to derive each solution, so that you can learn how to get there yourself. - Hints on how to solve each of the 189 questions, just like what you would get in a real interview. - Five proven strategies to tackle algorithm questions, so that you can solve questions you haven't seen. - Extensive coverage of essential topics, such as big O time, data structures, and core algorithms. - A behind the scenes look at how top companies like Google and Facebook hire developers. - Techniques to prepare for and ace the soft side of the interview: behavioral questions. - For interviewers and companies: details on what makes a good interview question and hiring process.

 Description: 


I am not a hired recruiter. I'm a software technician. And as such, I know what it is like to be asked on the spot to whip up brilliant algorithms and then write faultless code on a whiteboard. As a nominee and as an interviewer I was through this. The 6th edition of Cracking the Coding Interview is here to guide you through this process, teach you what you need to know and empower you to perform at your best. I coached hundreds of software developers, and interviewed them. This book results. Learn how to discover the clues and secret information in a question, figure out how to break down a problem into manageable bits, build strategies to unstick yourself while stuck, learn (or re-learn) basic principles of computer science, and prepare questions and responses for 189 interviews. These questions about the interview are real; they are not taken out of textbooks in computer science. They represent what is really being asked at the top companies, so you can be prepared as much as possible. Who Is INSIDE? -- 189 questions for programming interviews, ranging from the basics to the most challenging algorithm problems. -- A walk-through on how each solution can be derived, so you can learn how to get there yourself. -- Tips on answering each of the 189 questions, much like what you'd get in a real interview. -- Five tested ways to fix algorithm problems, so you can answer questions that you haven't seen. -- A thorough coverage of main subjects such as big O time , data structures and core algorithms. -- A look behind the scenes at how top corporations such as Google and Facebook recruit developers. -- Soft side of interview training and ace techniques: behavioural questions. -- For interviewers and businesses: specifics of what makes the question and recruiting process a successful interview.
