comment Programming interview: on sorted arrays, algorithm proof
Let's clarify this a bit. I assume array of integers, can they be negative? Is Max(x,y,z) the max product of x*y*z? Can we accept a negative Max(x,y,z) - Min(x,y,z)?

comment Entry level software developer technical interview… I need preparation advice
@tehnyit There is a huge difference between what one knows, and what he or she can/cannot implement. If you have to write code on paper for the first time during an interview, "Panic hits you like a bucket of water. Bam! Right in the face", and that's it.. It's not about knowing stuff by heart, it's about practicing algorithms and structures that touch several aspects of programming and training yourself to certain kind of tests. Start with a simple algorithm, then keep challenging yourself more and more. Every new problem teaches you something, and you'll be a little bit readier each time

You're welcome. Since you're fresh out of school let me give you another tip: Get a simple algorithm (bubbleSort, insertionSort, binarySearch, deleteDuplicatesInList, etc) and implement it on paper (nobody will give you a compiler at an interview). Can you do it without looking at the book? How long did it take you? Then rewrite it on an IDE. Does it compile? Test it. Does it work for any inputs? Can you reduce its complexity? Only following the steps above you will get ready for a serious interview...
