  • Amazon SDE 2 Interview in 3 weeks. What should be the plan of action?
    I would highly not recommend it for HLD at least(don't know about LLD). His content barely scratches the surface and is mostly designed to garner views(nothing wrong in that). This place is a good start in my opinion. | 2021-09-19

    I started week 1 brushing up my technical skills. I read system design primer and Grokking the System Design. In hindsight, both resources are very similar and you only need one of them. Use Grokking only if you want to interview for a very technical role or with a company that has a pure system design round.
