TOP 3 things Mr. Tuan Thi hopes Computer Science students, who dream to build their paths to TOP technology companies, will think hard about:
Systematic: Come up with a smart and consistent practice strategy, cover one topic at a time, study the most fundamental examples in each topic, and always relate new questions to these examples
Proactive: Need to understand finding a good job is super important for a student (even more important than finishing your degree). If you have that awareness in mind, all your actions will lead you towards that goal
Dedicated: Need to practice gradually, one Leetcode problem at a time, aim for Medium level problems
