    I didn't read the entire book, but there is more advanced stuff here like dynamic programming optimization, and parallel binary search, you can check the table of contents for more.

    Or refer to this blog: Guide to Competitive Programming and CSES Problem Set

      So, now this one is a super set of the draft version right?

        It must be right? Otherwise, what's the point of buying the book even the first place?

          Yeah, I was asking because I earlier had the draft so now I replaced it with this book so was just asking to make sure I wouldn't miss anything but instead get few new topics.
