Wow!

After two months of studying and 100 leetcode questions, I decided to come to try the real deal-codeforces. It was quite the experience!

I have become so dependent on the leetcode "run code" "show diff" options that I am not able to work without it :(

I solved question A by doing a complete dry run in my notebook and then moved forward

I tried a lot of edge cases but could not solve the wrong answer error in question B, it was so close :(

And finally, I moved onto C and there I managed to get a mathematical equation on paper ( adding 1/2 then 1/3 then 1/4 ... to avg temp) but could not figure out the loops terminating condition.

Overall I am very happy about this decision and cannot wait for the next contest!

Thanks for reading :D

All the best! Keep hustling!

Thanks a lot!

(just a doubt — are we to refrain from posting about our experiences here? Asking because of the downvotes..)

Don't care about downvotes. A lot of people will downvote anything they see

Yes if they don't add value to the community..

Consider a case : If everyone started to write such blog regarding there experience then just think what codeforces will be filled with. Hope you understand what I meant to say why you get downvotes.

No offence :)

Yes, I understand your point of view

who cares?

Very useful blog! Thank you.

Very useful comment, thank you!

Very useful reply, thank you!

it's not funny anymore!

Thank you for this useful clearification.

very useful sarcasm, thank you!

hey, How did you praticed on leetcode . I also want to solve problems on leetcode but not able to figure out which questions are important as interview point of view. And also congratulations on your first contest on codeforces:)

Hi i do the explore cards, eg start with recursion, i did interviewbit before that

I am seeing this blog as a positive effect of the

`new starting rating system`

. With the older system, posts like these potentially can be totally opposite.Did you solve 100 medium problems on Leetcode?
