Online Coding Interview
The online test consisted of 2 coding questions, 30 aptitude MCQs, 30 behavioral MCQs and 10 code snippets to debug. The coding questions were of medium level, aptitude MCQs were easy and the code snippets to debug was also of easy level. Each section had a time constraint.
You are given two sorted linked lists. You have to merge them to produce a combined sorted linked list. You need to return the head of the final linked list.
Ninjaland is a country in the shape of a 2-Dimensional grid 'GRID', with 'N' rows and 'M' columns. Each point in the grid has some cost associated with it.
Tip 1 : You must have a grip over Data Structures and algorithms. Your concepts must be crystal clear. Pick one coding platform and try to practice at least 7-10 coding questions everyday. I completed around 200+ questions on Leetcode, 200+ questions on Geek For Geeks and around 30-40 questions on InterviewBit.
Tip 2 : After attempting any coding problem, analyze its time and space complexity. See, if you can further optimize your solution. You can always check the editorials and compare your solution with it.
Tip 3 : Apart from coding questions keep studying concepts of Operating Systems, databases and object oriented programming. You can always refer to Geeks For Geeks articles for it. Also, Coding Ninja's Data Structures and algorithms course in C++ helped me a lot in improving my OOPS concepts specifically.
Tip 1 : You do not need to have a long list of projects on your resume. One good project with proper knowledge of it will do good. Similarly, do not list down several number of skills. Few skills but roper knowledge of them are enough.
Tip 2 : Do not fake anything on your resume. The interviewer gets to know about it by asking questions. If you aren't able to answer, it leaves a negative impact.
