IK provides a nice, structured way to prepare for interviews while having a full-time job. Mock interviews helped me get better and the problem sets alleviated the need for me to source problems externally.

“The course was very intense. During the two months it lasted, I would easily work 2+ hours every day, weekends included, on the homework problems. This course is just practice, practice, practice. And it works! Fast forward a couple of weeks, and I accepted my offer with Facebook.”
