I will practice ALGORITHMS problems everyday and have rating > 1500 in 2 months.

I think you should practice implementation problems and fast solving and quick idea generating. Cause for 1500+ algorithomic problems are not that necessary. But practicing algorithms are good! You can also practice vertual contests and upsolve them. All the best.

    The point of practicing algorithms when you're at a lower level is less about knowing the algorithms but seeing the techniques it uses and figuring out how to implement it in a way fit for cp. Essentially it teaches you to learn to think about problems better, even if they don't use that algorithm, as long as you understand why the algorithm works. It will help you in the long run more to solve harder problems than just practice solving quick (though that is the fastest way for short term benefit).

You can do it! Just be consistent in your practice. Pro tip: participate in lots of virtual contests and you'll be specialist in no time.

Nice plan but how are you going to solve problems ( I mean do you have particular strategy for that bcause I don't think just solving every question and coding will take a lot of time and you will end up getting targeted rating after more than 2 months. So .... what is the plan bro? can you share? Thanks.

As you registered in this community about 20 months ago,i think you have enough knowledge to cross newbie level.If you can solve A in less than 15 minutes and somehow manage to solve B in a contest then you will be a pupil definitely.Then solve problems from a2oj ladders.I think this process can ensure you to be a specialist in less than 2 months.If i have said anything wrong pardon me.Good luck.

        Well you can encourage him to keep going, but I can definitely say he can't make rating 1500 in 2 months, as he already failed smh.

You can do it, my friend... You just need to study hard and correctly... Here is a link to a video that may help you to avoid mistakes and study more correctly. I know I'm unrated, but the video is from a red coder. I wish you good luck!

Motivation is something that should come from inside not from outside :)

"Oh f-ck-ng shit!" when I realised I traveled back in time when I visited this piece of motivation.. The 2 months are over now..

But it's always better to stay motivated and try to achieve what u couldn't get previously than giving up. At least that's what I do and I know i will become red in 24months. :X

I managed to do it in 2 months, which means so can you! Do not give up yet; don't let the negative comments dishearten you.
