Algorithms and Data Structures Test for Hiring Engineers
The algorithmic knowledge quiz assesses a candidate's understanding of classic algorithmic data structures, a common subject in four-year CS programs. Topics on this quiz contain questions that range from simple definitions and use cases, and progress through the details of more obscure data structures and their concrete implementations.This quiz assesses a candidate’s knowledge of algorithms and data structures. Candidates are asked questions about the behavior and use-cases of common algorithms and about the data structures that support them. They’re also asked to answer questions on computational complexity, like whether an algorithm has O(log n) or O(n) runtime or space requirements.
What topics does the Algorithms and Data Structures test cover?
• Classic data structures such as hash maps, binary search trees, etc.
• Classic algorithms, and ability apply them to solve problems
• Time and space complexity
• Worst- and average-case complexity of common operations
• Breadth- and depth-first search
• Underlying implementations of many classic algorithms
