Hello everyone, recently we have formed a team, and but we have no idea how to improve ourselves. As there are many people in Codeforces who are competing for years and who have experience , can you share us how you practice to improve to perform in team competition any idea(helpful ;)) will be appreciated.

Also another thing, What do you think is best learn a topic and solve problems or solve problems and learn topic when you face it ? TIA .
