Hey, I have tried many methods and when I started I was also confused like you. But from my experience I will tell what worked for me in improving effectively. Solve problems by difficulty (ratings) rather than letter (div2 A,B etc). Because sometimes even div2 A problems are rated 1500. And you may not be able to solve that as a beginner. So you can sort the problems (in problemset) by difficulty, and solve the 800 rated problems first. When you become comfortable with that, you increase your difficulty level and repeat. And I didn't followed A2OJ ladders but many used and it worked for them. You can check out this blog. And also use this website. I personally used these two recently and liked them.

Best of Luck
