Message to Aspiring Students.

Have a stronghold on Data Structure and Algorithms and CS fundamentals. Do Striver’s SDE sheet. It will cover all your standard questions. As In Amazon, they ask mostly standard questions or twist the standard question. So Have confidence in yourself.

You can participate in weekly and biweekly contests of leetcode.

For Amazon Prepare for Leadership Principles as well.

Try to give first brute force approach then optimal one. Try to communicate with the interviewer while solving questions.

Prepare some questions you can ask the interviewer in the end about company work culture, tech stack they used, etc.

All the Best to all Aspirants for their upcoming Interviews. Nothing is impossible. Be consistent and have confidence.
