Preparation Tip

Tip 1 : Be thorough with data structures and algorithms. Avoid just switching between different coding platforms according to people's suggestion instead pick one and stick to it(Leetcode worked for me!).
Tip 2 : Do not miss out on core subjects (for GS ,OOPs and Operating systems especially).
Tip 3 : Keep giving mock interviews (take at least 2 -3 prior to real one) ,it helps a lot to prevent last-minute interview anxieties and makes you feel prepared and confident.
