From the Author
I also know because I've been on the other side of the table, asking candidates to do this. I've combed through stacks of resumes to find the engineers who I thought might be able to actually pass these interviews. And I've debated in Google's Hiring Committee whether or not a candidate did well enough to merit an offer. I understand and have experienced the full hiring circle.
And you, reader, are probably preparing for an interview, perhaps tomorrow, next week, or next year. You likely have or are working towards a Computer Science or related degree. I am not here to re-teach you the basics of what a binary search tree is, or how to traverse a linked list. You already know such things, and if not, there are plenty of other resources to learn them.
This book is here to help you take your understanding of Computer Science fundamentals to the next level, to help you apply those fundamentals to crack the coding interview. Because while the fundamentals are necessary to land one of the top jobs, they aren't always enough. For countless readers, this book has been just what they needed.

Along with the technical interview section, the book also prepares you for "HR" type questions that you will also encounter in interviews. Furthermore, the book gives you general tips on coding habits that interviewers are looking for, negotiating salaries, career goals...etc.
The book is a fantastic way to train yourself and gives you the confidence to tackle these programming interviews. Pick it up now!!!
Note however that you need to have basic notions about the Data Structures and other topics discussed.
Finally I think it could be useful to mention that most of the questions solutions use Java.
