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 st...

The missing ingredient!

Was it ever your dream to be in one of the top-notch companies India (the likes of Microsoft, Amazon, Adobe etc) & you thought the interview rounds were too hard. Well, the rounds are hard (believe me) only because facing those questions on the spot makes your brain go drifting somewhere else (happened to me..).

But if you already had a taste of whats going to come, you are prepared, you are confident & you will give it your best shot.


With a systematic approach even tough goals can be ach...

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...

Great companion for preparation

I got the 5th edition in 3 days, thanks to Flipkart.

It is worth to have the book on personal library. It helps to prepare behavioral and technical aspects. There are few typos, yet the material flow is readable.

Follows Java as base language to implement code. C/C geeks will be able to follow the logic, if not syntax. They can easily write code in C/C by following Java code.

Do not rush to read solutions, if you rush, it is of no use. Try to solve each question in different ways, thin...

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 n...

Excellent !!!

This book delivers exactly what it promises. Indispensable and professionally written! I am writing this review because I am very satisfied with the content and presentation as well. Rarely does a book has both these qualities. I would recommend it to any one considering to buy a book on technical interviews for CS. This can easily be the top choice.
