If you're only trying to reach CM in codeforces (but not trying to perform well in other competitions like ICPC) you can just put in a lot of time to solve problems from previous rounds, since most problems you'll encounter before reaching Master do not require classical algorithms.

By the way, to reach CM you needs to solve at least 4 problems in Div.2 in average. If you're not particularly talented, it's a big challenge to reach CM even in 2 years.

      You need to learn algorithms such as network flow, shortest path, those sort of advanced things and build your skill set
