  • I am not a beginner to CP, I had some time practicing on another judge (also in camps), now I can solve some problems 1800-1900, sometimes higher (2000), but in my recent virtual join, i didn't solve the problem with 1300 rank, am i really depressed for the next problem (DEF)? What should I do? Am I too weak in some parts? Or is my implementation poor?
  • Can you give me some advice? Such as how to practice. Before asking this question I have consulted through similar articles on CF or quore but only get some general answers such as "practice a lot", "code on paper", "practice by topic" , "try to do articles with 100-200 rating higher than your current rating".
  • Is there a way to find the good of my weaknesses? Are good observations improved? For example I am weak "greedy", should I do all "greedy" on a2oj or something like that?

I fail at random easy problems at virtuals sometimes, it's a thing that happens.

Am I too weak in some parts? Or is my implementation poor?

How do you expect anyone to answer such questions? We can't analyze how good your skills in particular areas are, or how your implementation is when you have given us literally no information. Perhaps I could do some statistics on your submissions, but even that would be scratching the surface. You are the one who has to do the introspection here.

Can you give me some advice? Such as how to practice.

Here's the thing.

  1. No one knows the answers to such questions. We don't have the kind of experience that some professional sports have, where they can develop very specific and optimized training routines that maximize efficiency.

  2. I don't think it matters how you practice exactly — as long as you use the common sense things that you have already been told. I know that you might feel more comfortable if someone told you exactly what to do, but it would be about as effective as just coming up with your own method.

Yes, the more you do such problems, the more your ability to observe stuff increases.

    Thanks for your advice very much. I will try. I will create my own method.
