HackerRank Tips and Tricks
If you’re new to HackerRank, try the sample test first. It will help you learn the environment. We will NOT see your results for the sample test.
HackerRank will give you 60 minutes to complete each question. If you run out of time, it's OK. We will still receive any code you wrote into the HackerRank IDE.
You can code in any language you'd like. Make sure to select your preferred programming language in the HackerRank's IDE.
Write comments in your code so we can follow along with your thought process.
When you run your code, it will be tested against various inputs and you will be told if your code passed the test cases. These test cases are helpful, but THIS IS NOT YOUR SCORE and it will not be used to determine if you are accepted. If your logic and thought process is correct but it does not pass any tests, you still have a good chance of passing the challenge.
Our technical instructors will be reading and grading everyone's code submission, even if it passes 0 test cases! Do your best at writing your solution in code and write comments that we can look at when reviewing your code.
DON'T CHEAT!!! We will be reading everyone's code, and HackerRank also detects code copied from online sources. We want to give you every chance to be accepted, but cheating is not tolerated. The following are considered cheating:
Searching the challenge programming question online
Copying a solution from an online source
Sharing the question and your solution with others or posting it online
