Recently I started solving harder problems on At-Coder, USACO, Hacker-Earth etc. A lot of times I find myself spending excessive amount of time trying to understand these editorials. A lot of small points (even though they are critical in laying the base for understanding the problem) are usually completely disregarded. Due to this it becomes rather difficult to understand the latter part of the solution. How do you guys deal with this problem (if you face it)?
Usually, I try my best to understand the tutorial by reading it again and again. But if still it is vague, then I go and either comment about it or write a blog (which I delete after the solution is clear).
hello freind. You can refer this beginner frendly blog: https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/114501
If you can't understand editorials then the problem is too hard for you.
How may I improve my level to be able to understand them then?
maybe learning patterns like dp, recursion, divide and conquer and ...
