I can solve the problems of Google code jam however it takes time to make the problem whereas Round 1A,1B,1C require quick problem solving.Can anyone give me some idea how can i improve my speed.
And what is your the problem? To come up with a proper solution or to code it? My problem in contests is, that I’m not able to find out the solution quick enough, coding is not a big problem for me then…
But it’s not important if finding a theoretical solution or coding it is slow, you can work on both by practicing (yeah, but improving coding skills is a lot easier, than your ability of finding proper solution, just an opinion).
Only one way - Practice.
