"Preparing for my first rounds of tech interviews was really daunting - I wasn't sure what to expect and where to start. This handbook together with the Front End Interview Handbook was a great starting point for me. It clearly describes each part of the process and has tons of awesome tips and resources. With this handbook and lots of practice, I managed to get offers from Facebook, Dropbox and Amazon!"
"Most of us are familiar with having the prospect of having to grind tons of LeetCode problems before the interview, but I really wanted a sense of direction, an outline of sorts to prepare efficiently; I wanted to pick questions that covered all the important concepts one can be tested on. The Tech Interview Handbook provides just that; the Algorithms section was an absolutely invaluable resource and a great overall reference to brush up my fundamentals with the helpful hints and tips provided, and also solve some of the most popular questions categorized by type. I certainly have Yangshun to thank for helping me land my dream job at Google!"
"The Tech Interview Handbook played a crucial role in the success of my previous job search. The contents are carefully curated and well organized. It served as an excellent roadmap for my interview prep.
In addition to the thorough Data Structures and Algorithms section, the handbook also provides a lot of resources on other aspects of the application process that helped me see the tech interviews in a more holistic way. My favorite non-technical part was "Questions To Ask"! I used quite a few insightful questions from there to challenge and impress my interviewers. The results were great!
With the help of Tech Interview Handbook, I was able to land offers from Google, Amazon, Uber and several other great companies. Really appreciate Yangshun and other contributors for putting out such quality content for the community. I'd wholeheartedly recommend this handbook to anyone!"
"I have not been preparing much for my interviews before my final year in university. As I set my sights on my full time job, I referred heavily to this handbook about things to prepare and look out for during my applicaion. It has helped me so much in many stages of my application. My personal favorite is the best algorithm practice questions, which is helpful in the future if I want to switch jobs.
With the help of this handbook, I successfully land offers from Facebook, Quora, Abnormal Security and a few more established companies. Highly recommend any tech job applicants to refer to this handbook."
