Hello Codeforces!

Today is the 10th day since the beginning of my journey (1/8 part). Today I practiced problems from other sites on the topic of mathematics, number theory and recursion. Also today I solved the first ten problems from Project Euler, and completed the 3rd topic of the CF course. And also, today I have a lot of questions regarding competitive programming, here are some of them:

Will CodeForces help improve your overall skill in competitive programming, or will it help only on the CF platform?

What specific sports programming topics are needed to reach the pupil?

Today I also had a lot of time, but I didn’t have enough patience to finish the 2nd topic of the Informatics website. Now we have to put it off until tomorrow >:(

Plans for tomorrow:

Finish this unsolved topic, get together and finish the last 2 contests, solve more problems and also DON’T LOSE MOTIVATION!

Till tomorrow!

So, if you want to reach pupil, you have to consistently solve Div2AB and Div3ABC (sometimes even D) and Div4(ABCD). The topics you need are mostly: greedy, number theory, binary search (basic), pref sum (basic and very rare). Among all these greedy is the hardest to master. You need to solve many problems. Consider solving problems in rating range 1200-1300. That's it.

    Greedy and some very very basic number theory is probably necessary, but prefix sum is almost never needed and binary search can be replaced with std::set or its equivalent in other languages.

I recently became a pupil. I have started studying in an organized way. I do a contest, then I try to upsolve 1 problem I could not solve during the contest (the easiest of them) and then I note everything down. The way I organize information is from contest to contest. For example I will have 3 folders corresponding to 3 contests that I gave and I remember the techniques and tricks folder wise. Also I give my best to solve a problem and if I am exhausted or bored I lookup the editorial and make the techniques mentioned in it my own and note it down.

Glad to see you back broski.

Will CodeForces help improve your overall skill in competitive programming, or will it help only on the CF platform?

In my experience, practicing problems on any one website will improve your general competitive programming ability. But different websites do have different styles of problems. For example, leetcode is more about implementation while codeforces weighs more heavily on problem-solving. So solving leetcode problems might improve codeforces skill a bit but it won't be as effective as solving problems on codeforces.

Actually, you can become expert or higher by putting anime pf

        I don't like to impose my opinion on others, but you can revise my recent comments and you will find the answer. Good luck.

    I can confirm this. In fact, I was struggling to get back to CM, but once I changed to this pfp, I got CM (although I fell back again next contest)

      Same with me, when I put an anime pfp, I reached IM in the next contest.

I reached specialist in 2 months and all I can tell you is all you need to do is solve problems, the more the better.

    This question is much harder than "how to reach pupil"

Just train E div4s, D div3s and B div2s.

If you do those problems fast (and the previous problems) you will get pupil.

    If you solve them REALLY fast you can get to specialist at the right time.
