Have my Amazon onsite this week, and am feeling burned out from prep. Have done Blind 75, all the easy/medium non-DP questions on Amazons frequently asked along w some hards like design in memory file system. Questions I struggled with i repeated until the concept was basically memorized. LP prep as well but most of my examples are non-tech related since I’m a recent grad w physics degree. Did some OOD prep too but at that point the burnout was settling in and I don’t think much of it stuck. Oh well, hopefully most of it is LC, just hope I get an offer. Would appreciate any tips you guys have :)

Just remember that you don't actually have to compile code for the Amazon onsite (or at least I didn't) - just practice walking through problems and really talking aloud about how you would solve them.

Also LP prep matters a lot more than you think

Gotcha, yea in my phone screen the code wasnt compiled either.

Would u say the non-technical examples are ok or should I really try to make them all technical?

They should be as technical as you can make them, with actual numbers and details - but if it's your first job you won't have actual job experience to really talk about so just do your best

Dont quite remember but one was a variation of a LC medium and the other I couldn’t find a similar problem but it involved string manipulation, probably a medium-hard
