5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy for software engineers
Reviewed in India on February 21, 2020
It's not unknown that cracking the coding interview is one of the top most recommended books for software interviews. So my comments are only specific to the quality of the book. I have seen people complain at the slight off white color of the pages, the font, the smell of the pages, missing content in Indian version. All those people are definitely not serious about programing. The author has done an excellent job in cutting down costs especially on the printing side and not on the content. The book is about 2 inches thick so don't get intimidated. It still has 542 pages. Some of the content that was trimmed out for Indian version is available online shared by the author. The book has the details. Lastly the fond is quite readable and the book is thick due to the spacing between lines which is comfortable to read. The international edition costs about 2.5k INR. So for 599 this book is a steal. Do not hesitate to buy if you are preparing for software interviews.
