## What rating problems should I practice to be able to solve Div2 C problem.

I have followed a pattern for practicing problems. When I started I used to practice 800 rating problems, then when I was able to solve A problem in 2-3 Div2 contests, I moved on to solve 1000-1100 rating problems and when I was able to solve B problem in 2-3 Div2 contests I moved on 1200-1300 rating problems.

But, I have noticed that most of Div2 C problems are of 1600-1700 rating (I may be wrong). So, should I start solving 1600-1700 rating problems? Also, will jumping from 1300 to 1700 be actually beneficial for me?

#### Info which might give you insights to my level

Highest rating: 1201

Current rating: 1159

Number of 1200-1300 problems solve: 70(1200), 15(1300)

Dont skip 1300 up to 1700, because you wont be able to solve them, it requires practice. Instead, keep solving 1300, when you solve about 70, move to next level.

great

see go like this 1300 -> 1400 -> 1500 and ..If u can do around 25 questions of any given level (like 1300) without any help then move to the next level. Else try to solve 25 problems of the same level again .

in my opinion, virtual contests are really good for practice since you'll get to solve problems from every difficulty and you'll practice solving them quickly, maybe try more virtual contests.

I am currently working through https://codeforcesladders.firebaseapp.com/.

I think this can also help you because it has problems sorted by rating.

if you really to grind ladders, you can rather use https://c2-ladders.com/ which contains newer problems (codemastercpp's blog)

Thanks for this.

keep trying learn binary search dp.

I think you need to try harder problems. At least not solving but reading its tutorial?
