Google India Code Jam

Posted by lapstre on March 20, 2006

2 Problems,

One worth 1000 points


Another worth 250 points….

Total time of 1 Hour

Attend the 1000 point problem first, Forget the 250 point problem; Don’t make the same mistake i did!

Both are easy….

All the Very Best !!!

Update: I Lost…

There were many with lesser points, but not in my question set. No Regrets, Looking forward to the nex one…

    can you give me the proper approach needed to crack the code jam contest ?
    also tell me, if there is any, special topics on which i should be prepared to attend the code jam contest ?
    Though, nothing is specified like this on that site, i guess you know something, as you have prior experiences of attending it.
    I have registered for the international code jam 2006 !!
    This is my first attempt !!

    Take it easy…
    Prior experience with the GCC compiler is a boon if you are coding in C++, sometimes the code compiles differently, thats wot caused me to lose last time….

    Sleep well the day before, seriously it helps if u have a clear mind…

    Don’t jump into coding straight away, take time to design and valuate your approach first.

    Also try the practice questions on practise rooms, will be a gr8 help…

    If you are good at javaa, go with it insted of c++…

    All the best! – May the best programmer win!
