Hi Codeforces !

In this blog I will discuss about some important algorithms, practice strategy and some tips for newcomers....

**Important algorithms and Topics**

Here I will mention some important algorithms and some important topics.

• STL

• Sorting

• Binary Search

• Time Complexity

• Prefix Sum

• String

• Basic Number Theory

• Basic Bit Manipulation

**Practice Strategy**

Most of newcoms try just easy problem for practicing. All newcomers should try hard problems but not so hard. Like if your current rating is 1000-1199 then you should try at least 1300-1400 rated problems . So, try those problems which will take at least 1 hour or higher to solve.

**Tips**

First of all you have to enjoy competitive programming. **When you solve a problem try to prove that solution which is very very important even I think it is one of the most important tips**.. If you can't prove try to understand the editorial. Never cram solution always try to understand.

I hope you will forgive me for my mistakes.. I am apologize for my bad English ;( .
