Have you ever...

  • Wanted to work at an exciting futuristic company?
  • Struggled with an interview problem that could have been solved in 15 minutes?
  • Wished you could study real-world computing problems?

If so, you need to read Elements of Programming Interviews (EPI).

The core of EPI is a collection of 300 problems with detailed solutions, including over 100 figures and 250 tested programs. The problems are challenging, well-motivated, and accessible. They are representative of the questions asked at interviews at the most exciting companies.

The book begins with a summary of patterns for data structure, algorithms, and problem solving that will help you solve the most challenging interview problems. This is followed by chapters on basic and advanced data structures, algorithm design, concurrency, system design, probability and discrete mathematics. Each chapter starts with a brief review of key concepts and results followed by a deep and wide set of questions.

EPI concludes with a summary of the nontechnical aspects of interviewing, including common mistakes, strategies for a great interview, perspectives from across the table, negotiating the best offer, and much more.

"This book is the best compilation of programming related problems I have seen. It is a great resource for a diverse set of topics when preparing for technical interviews, as a quick refresher in a subject area or when you are just looking for a brain teaser to challenge yourself."
Shashank Gupta / Scaligent, formerly Engineering Manager, Amazon.com, Senior Engineering Manager, Yahoo!, Manager of Software Development, Cisco Systems

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great text for technical interviews 15 novembre 2012
Par goforfun - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
In summary, I strongly recommend this book for anyone who wants to excel in interviews in top software companies.

This book has extensive interview problems with detailed solutions. It covers basic to advanced algorithm solving techniques. The book is very comprehensive and detailed - it is by far the largest collections of such problems that I know of. I really liked the fact that most problems have detailed programs which I could download complete versions of. The figures were also very helpful for me to understand some of the harder concepts.

Materials in later chapters which contain dynamic programming and graph algorithms make this book stands out among other interview books. These materials especially help readers to think critically when facing difficult programming problems with efficiency constraints.

I also purchased "Cracking the Coding Interview" for preparing for my interviews. Compared to that book, I found Elements of Programming Interviews to be better preparation for the questions I was asked at the on-site interviews. Cracking the Coding Interview had more basic questions, the kind I was asked in phone screening and on-campus interviews.

I am very fond of algorithms, and, just like Keith wrote in his review, Elements of Programming Interviews nicely supplements traditional algorithm textbooks which lack of practical examples.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I bought one copy of book; after reading it, I bought another one for my friend! 23 octobre 2012

I've read through this book in great detail and I found it very useful for preparing for interviews. I appreciate the quantity, quality, and selection of problems. The detailed solutions with working code and well-drawn figures aided my understanding.

These problems would help you understand what is asked at interviews. Although the questions at the interview may not be exactly from the book, the book questions are very similar to those I have seen. I believe reading the book helps me stay calm and solve those questions because it helps me get used to thinking of challenging problems. I really like how the book teaches me to apply the same basic problem solving patterns again and again to conquer problems. If your goal is to work at a prestigious company, you should definitely read these examples before interview. In my experience, without the right preparation it is very hard to even know how to start answering their questions.

Almost each solution includes source code. This code has saved me lots of time. As Knuth said "It has often been said that a person does not really understand something until he teaches it to someone else. Actually a person does not really understand something until after teaching it to a computer." You cannot persuade interviewers that you really understand it unless you could code it correctly. Especially if your first question is data structure problem, you should code a correct and efficient solution quickly and elegantly. It's a pity if you know how to solve a problem but cannot code it when interviewing at your dream company.

I am passionate about programming and the book stimulated my mind a great deal. I like how the authors explain algorithms, and this made me want to keep reading. It was never a burden to work through the book.

I think this book would help lots of people who want to be a software engineer at the best companies and highly recommend you to buy one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Invaluable book for programming interviews 21 janvier 2013
Par franciscan - Publié sur Amazon.com

Having thoroughly enjoyed the previous incantation (Algorithms for Interviews) of this book, I was very much looking forward to the new version. I work in the highly competitive field of EDA software development, and lead an expanding team of top-notch developers. We are frequently interviewing and evaluating new college hires and experienced developers alike, and resort to deep algorithmic and programming questions to test their mettle. Elements of Programming Interviews delivers a fantastic collection of problems to choose from for this purpose. I especially appreciated the presence of variants, which makes it easier to test if someone has just memorized solutions, or has real problem solving skills. More than that, I found a number of the problems very helpful in improving the performance of certain algorithms that we deploy in our software! Several of my team members were impressed enough to purchase copies of their own, to sharpen their skills and use it as a handy reference for improving code performance.

I read through the book carefully, and found three bugs in the solutions, which I reported to the authors. Two of them had already been fixed at [...] and the authors got back to me and with the fix for the third bug on the day I reported it. Very impressive!

I would highly recommend this book to engineers on both sides of the hiring process as well as to anyone who writes high performance code, particularly from the algorithmic side, e.g., for EDA, machine learning, big data, networking etc.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nothing short of 5 stars - THE best programming prep book out there 28 octobre 2013
Par aditya - Publié sur Amazon.com
Whether you are preparing for an interview or not, every software developer should own this book! If you are infact preparing, this is a MUST have! Period!

Bought this book after my sister told me about it. The first four chapters looked pretty broad yet informative but somehow I wasn't impressed in the beginning. It was towards the end of the 5th chapter that things got super interesting and I got glued to the book. I consider myself a fairly experienced developer but after working on some of the questions and especially after looking at the solutions, I realized that there are much smarter ways to solve problems. I was looking at geeksforgeeks and careercup questions earlier but was never confident that I had covered all the topics. But after going through the book and after solving the problems I got this immense confidence that I now am better equipped with solving any complicated interview question (yet to be tested : ) but I am definitely a lot more confident than I was before).

Each question is very well thought out and definitely the solutions are one of the smartest ways to code/solve. I was blown away by some of the elegant solutions in the book. I would recommend trying to solve the questions on your own first without looking at the solution at all and then spend time comparing the approach. I specifically like the way the complexity of the topics grows gradually across chapters and also within each chapter.

Also, the book covers almost all sorts of problems that a typical company like google/facebook would ask - ranging from primary data structures to applications of bsts(I didnt know such complex problems could be solved just with bsts) , basic and indepth problems on greedy and dynamic programming and entire set of chapters dedicated to graphs/P vs NP and probability/discrete math. The authors have done an excellent job of making sure that you don't get lost in reading the theory(like in Cormen or other similar books). But instead they focussed primarly on problem solving as such.

I haven't come across any other book on the market that is so comprehensive and most importantly provides a base reference in terms of problems/solutions and the approach to various types of subtle problems. I seriously cannot think of any negatives in the book at all. This book truly does more than 100% justice to its title!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Most Helpful Book for Job Interviews 19 octobre 2013
Par F. Li - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am a Computer Science graduate. A friend of mine recommended it to me after he got offers from MSFT and FB by using the book. I have used the book for a while now, and I think I can give some information to help other readers to make a good decision.

Basically this book contains a set of programming problems to warm you up for a job interview. There are many other job hunting books too, so what makes this one special?
I would say it has the following advantages:

0. Smart algorithms and solutions. Better than many other resources you could find.
1. Challenging problems, making it useful for preparing top companies interviews.
2. Source code website. We can actually run the code and compare it with ours. Often, I first write my own program and test it with their driver program.
3. High quality C++11 code with very few bugs. It helped me to refine my coding skills and styles.
4. Study guide. Very helpful for iterative studying.
5. Book chapter organization. It is both detailed and close to complete.
6. Good coverage of recent algorithms.

Let me elaborate a bit.

Taking item 0, Smart algorithm and solutions as an example:
If you have prepared for job interviews just a bit, you may know there is a frequent question for "designing a Stack with Max/Min operations". I solved the problem by myself and after comparing my solution with other resources, I thought mine is optimal - until I saw the solution from this book. It is more space efficient by storing the frequency information.
Another example is the "Permutation Problem". Before I read the book, I already had a decent solution. But the "swap based" solution in this book is simply more elegant and more flexible for solving other problems.
This kind of "Ah-ah" moments comes quite often when I read the book.

Taking item 6, Good coverage of recent algorithms as another example:
If you read the the Hashing chapter of the book, You will notice that it covers the "Min-hash" algorithm. This is quite surprising to me as it is a new algorithm in the document/image search area. I know it because I did my research on the topic. I'd never expect it to appear in an interview book.

To summarize, this is a well organized and supported book for learning CS problem solving. The high quality solutions presented in this book will definitely help us to impress interviewers. I think it is the most useful resource for preparing job interviews.
Other than interview preparation, we can learn a lot other practical skills/knowledge from the book too.

Finally, here is my personal advice about how to use the book: the book's study guide is your good friend. Because the book contains some quite hard problems, following the guide will make your learning more efficient.
