Hi everyone. I am starting cp. I have given 1 contest. Can anyone tell me to what to do and how to become a better problem solver.

Just solve problems everyday and don't forget to learn algorithms.

Everyday, be a better programmer than yesterday.

I spend time doing at least 3 problems everyday. In the days that I'm free, I choose some 1100-1400 problems to solve, and for some days that I'm busy (like today, I have to go to school all day, I only have time to coding at night), so yeah, I sort the problems in the ascending order and solve problems at about 900-1000. And about method... uh... do you know the book Introduction to Algorithm (or widely known as CLRS)? I use that book to learn algorithm, but it might be too hard for beginner (I find it hard to understand, too). I have stored it on the bookshelf and one day I am better at coding, I will read it. That book is about 1300 pages hahaaa, so... uh... if you understand all the contents in that book, you probably is Grandmaster. Now I am using the pdf book Professional notes algorithm (search on google "Goalkicker Algorithm" and you will find it). And sometimes I learn on Youtube channel FreeCodeCamp. And that's it. Hope you happy learning and reach Pupil in near future.
