Reynald provides a reference and a tip. One is the book Cracking the Coding Interview. He explains how the content of the book is generally for high-end jobs but is required reading for any developer. He also urges the student to practice whiteboarding algorithms, especially with a friend. He also suggest another course, Nailing Your C# Developer Interview. Lastly he talks about meetup.com and the benefits of joining tech meetups.
- [Instructor] So when it comes to algorithms,…with the material that we covered,…we're just barely scratching the surface.…For example, one of the first algorithms that we covered…was a linked list.…And if you were to go and do a little research…on linked list, you'll see that there's quite a bit…of types of linked lists.…There's multiply linked list, circular linked list.…And this also applies to several other algorithms.…So things get really overwhelming because…you might not know which direction to go,…what to focus on, what's important, what's not.…
So I want to go ahead and suggest a couple of things.…One, is to practice white boarding…when you're studying algorithms.…And two, to have a core reference.…A very popular book is called Cracking the Coding Interview…and there's quite a bit of algorithmic type of questions…and their solutions.…So if you use a reference like this and actually…try to talk through the solutions, writing it out…on a white board, this would be extremely great practice,…not just coding it on your computer.…
