I want to be a specialist this Summer !!!

Hello to all codeforces guys, can you help me with the plan or reading material to reach the specialist and able to solve the problems with a rating range (<=1700). I am writing this blog in the hope that some people drop links to some useful resources to help me as well as others.

Just open problemset and solve those rated problems?? No one is going to give you some magic powder that you will smell and instantly solve them...

First of all, i don't think trying to solve problems with rate <= 1700 is going to be helpful for you at this rate it's just going to be a waste of time and you don't need that at your current rate what you need to do is to open the problemset and solve <= 1300 problems which based on your profile are a bit out of your comfort zone which is perfect and see what algorithms you will encounter in this rate problems and try to learn them, then when you reach that level you go out of your comfort zone again and raise your problems rate, good luck <3

I also have kind of the same goal, I want to reach expert before the end of the year. My plan is to finish usaco.guide and participate in codeforces rounds, and also solve problems from Mustafa Saad sheet for bling training. Until now I'm very happy with usaco, I've learned a lot of things since I started it, you should give it a look.
