Excellent book, but do you need it?

As other reviewers have mentioned, it's an excellent book, since the author had the privilege to work in some of the top software companies that we aspire to.
But if you're hoping to crack one of those interviews as the author would like you to, by reading her book, you'll be disappointed. No book containing just questions (150 in this case) can cover the vastness of the software field.
So, my advice would be to first study the topics of algorithms, programming etc. from good books. If you study them thoroughly and practise, you will not need this book.

Do the thinking after you buy it.

I have gone through many interview prep books and frankly speaking, there isn't any better alternative out there. Some are loosely organized, some are bland and some are too C -centric. These days, most coders like me are usually comfortable with Java and C# concepts and with the liberty in interviews to code in any language, this insider's account of interviews and how to prepare for it is apt and meaty. I also think that you should not stick to any particular timeline for buying this book. 1 week or 1 year before you face the big day does not matter at all. This book will shape the way... ()

This book will shape the way you think out algorithms and handle concepts like bit manipulation and scalability. Once you are through with the problems given here, you can just take out a pen and pad and tackle any problem in the huge database of questions available on the author's site.

Excellent for professionals, not useful for rookies

This book is very straightforward, author assumes that you are Pro programmer with proficiency in data structures algorithms and their implementation and coding language, so she presents you straight answers to the problems, no explanation.
So professionals preparing to switch their job should read this book it is great for them but students of final year computer science or IT stream won't gain much from this book instead they'll get confused..

Good book for practising the mock interviews for IT giants.

I was preparing for an interview and I have prepared my syllabus well. I have prepared DS, OS, computer architecture, core programming concepts, practised logical programming, almost everything that needs to be done. Still I was not feeling confident, I was totally unaware how to prepare and what to prepare. As I am currently working in a tier 2 product based company and preparing for a Giants like, MSFT, FB, Google is a big step for me. It is the area that I am completely unaware of, I was not at all aware about the expectations of such organizations.

I was preparing for an interview and I have prepared my syllabus well. I have prepared DS, OS, computer architecture, core programming concepts, practised logical programming, almost everything that needs to be done. Still I was not feeling confident, I was totally unaware how to prepare and what to prepare. As I am currently working in a tier 2 product based company and preparing for a Giants like, MSFT, FB, Google is a big step for me. It is the area that I am completely unaware of, I was not at all aware about the expectations of such organizations.
I found some content on web but that is not at all systematic and only points out the questions and do not point to the area of expertise that the organization look for.

The BOOK is answer to all the questions. It starts from what such organizations look for in the candidates, how to present yourself in front of panel, how to show your best skills, how to prepare, what topics to prepare, what topics need special attention and what what approach needs to be taken to solve tricky question. Lastly, it has series of questions, with solution that has the same level.
These topics helps me in getting the insight of such process that I am not yet past of. Now I know exactly what to prepare and also I feel more confident about it. I definitely recommend this book.
Printing quality of this book is really nice and as usual delivered in 2 days.

Tear on the cover

There's a big tear/gash on the cover. But I'm still giving this 4 stars because the print quality is good, and that's all I need. (View complete review)

Interesting

I completed this book with only high school coding experience and self learning concepts over youtube. The solutions make a lot of sense and are mostly well explained. Even though I got through the book without much experience in CS it doesn't fail to be challenging and interesting. (View complete review)

overrated

Very overrated book and waste of money i would say. Go for any basic algorithm book instead. Data Structures and Algorithms Made Easy is better than this. It has lot of interview related questions. (View complete review)
