Tip

Tip 1 : Competitive programming plays a major role when you are appearing for coding rounds as a fresher. In the coding rounds, you won't get direct problems copied from the internet. You would be required to use your logical thinking to go ahead in the process. This is where competitive programming helps.
Tip 2 : Coding rounds are all about Coding + Timing. Most people fail to excel due to the pressure of a timer ticking on their heads. So, instead of just solving problems, try to participate in timed contests. This will help you be used to the pressure of the timer.
Tip 3 : Many big companies expect you to be good at standard problems. So, once you are done with the coding round by your logical skills and competitive programming, you must be well versed with some standard problems in order to excel.

1. DBMS Questions

What is the difference between SQL and NoSQL databases?

Problem approach

If your data is very structured and ACID compliance is a must, SQL is a great choice. On the other hand, if your data requirements aren't clear or if your data is unstructured, NoSQL may be your best bet. The data you store in a NoSQL database does not need a predefined schema like you do for a SQL database.

2. OS Questions

Write the code for both semaphore operations.
