[Request] Leetcode Resources & Prep Advice for Quant Trading
I'm a junior& math. I'm going into IB next summer but realized that quant trading (citadel, JS, etc.) is what I'd really like to be in for the long-term. I consider myself some what well-versed in native Python, but haven't actually taken any DS&A classes.
Now I got some time to start brushing up my skills, I want to spend MY NEXT YEAR just working on my Leetcode skills. I know quant firms often ask medium & hard questions, so preferably I would want to be comfortable with medium questions by this coming June.
Here's my questions to you:
- Should I dive in head first into solving Leetcode problems and go look at the solution / Youtube videos explaining the DS&A, OR should I learn 1 DS and then just drill down on it (ex: focusing on only BFS problems)
- What are some of the resources out there that teach DS&A in the context of Leetcode problems coherently? Is this a good one? https://jooseph.com/collections/802?utm_source=reddit.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=r%2Flearnprogramming
- After I'm done with leetcode, what should my path afterwards be like? Prob & Stat or Brainteasers?
- Any other advice for me to be most efficient and effective would be super appreciated!
