Hello everyone, I am a beginner coder who works hard to improve. Recently, I have noticed that I need to solve more binary search questions to improve. So I filtered the problemset with binary search and set the difficulty range to 1400-1500. But, most problems only use binary search algorithm to only improve the time complexity. Could anyone suggest a resource that I could use just to improve my binary search? Thank you for your interest.

I think the USACO Guide Binary Search section is a pretty good resource for improving at binary search.

    I think it's the place to solve questions and make you better at solving. but what would you say about the theory part?

      If you want to learn graph theory topics then I think these 2 playlists on YouTube are great. Playlist-1 Playlist-2

        Wow, this is great!!! Thank you very much! Superb playlist. I know Prim's and basic DFS and BFS but I have lots of gaps int terms of fundamentals and this will definitely help a lot.

-> The following problems can be solved using Binary Search with a Monotonic Predicate Function. You can practice:
