On a basic level I know I’m not alone, but sure could stand to hear it right about now…
Basically, I finished the Front End cert, and have continued to practice algos everyday with either HackerRank, CodingGames and also just found a new one ProjectEuler.net
The thing is…it still takes me a couple hours to solve an algo, even an easy one…and I just feel like at this point it shouldnt still be this hard for me to do. Yesterday while submitting job applications, I came across one that said you need to complete a coding test before submitting an application, and even though I know its anyway part of the process, being faced with it right then and there it hit me how unprepared I am. Like, I knew there was no way on earth Id be able to complete 5 algos in the 90 minutes for that test.
On top off that, on ProjectEuler, it said that the exercises should take around 2m or so to solve…and here I am still taking a couple hours and my solution isnt exactly the most elegant either…Im just trying to solve it. Just kind of feeling discouraged, and also would really appreciate any tips and advice anyone has for me. Thanks!
