Which Platform I should use for Coding ?
Answer is Hackerrank. But why ?
See, there is no hard and fast rule that you should use Hackerrank only, you can also use other coding platforms like – Hackerearth, codechef etc. for practicing coding platform.
HackerRank is a place where programmers from all over the world come together to solve problems in a wide range of Computer Science domains such as algorithms, machine learning, or artificial intelligence, as well as to practice different programming paradigms or language specific like Python.
What should be my approach ?
0. Analyze where you stand – Check out your current status and based on that “analyze whether you will be able to crack that exam with your current skill set or you need to prepare more. ”
For that, best way is to check out the coding questions that were asked in InfyTQ Certification Exam last year : InfyTQ Last Year Problems
1. If you don’t have any experience with competitive programming or you are a beginner, then first try to solve problems that have easy difficulty level, and once you get familiar with it, try to increase your level with a decent pace and move on to medium or hard level.
2. If you are in a habit of solving such coding problems, then all you need is to carry-on your momentum. Participate in some of the mock coding contests to train yourself for final showdown.
Can I ignore MCQs ?
Answer is NO. As your MCQ section can provide you a side-window to qualify InfyTQ exam.
Consider a situation where you were able to pass all the testcases of first coding problem but you missed some of the testcases of second coding problem. In such rare cases, your MCQ section can help you in qualifying Infytq exam. So no need to ignore MCQs.
