Tip 2 : Most commonly asked topics in Google Interviews ( as per the mail I received from my recruiter ) :
BFS/DFS/Flood fill, Binary Search, Tree traversals, Hash tables, Linked list, stacks, queues, two pointers/sliding window
Binary heaps, Ad hoc/string manipulations.
Tip 3 : Highly recommended sites for practicing questions ( usually practice medium and hard level questions) :
Leetcode (highly encouraged)
Geeksforgeeks (highly encouraged)
CodeZen( highly encouraged)
Tip 4 : This is a great bigocheatsheet that could be of great help
