Hi folks, I have roughly 2 weeks to prepare, I wanted to know thoughts on what should be my plan to give it my best shot?

Main Problem that I am facing right now is implementing a solution correctly.

    Given your level, I assume you're interviewing for an L4 or L3 position (Google is notorious for downleveling 😔). This means that your interview will pretty much be entirely Data Structures and Algorithms. So break out that LeetCode and get cracking! LeetCode Premium will be a great investment so you can target your studying accordingly.

    I highly recommend going through all of this: [Masterclass] How To Ace Your Big Tech Interview - Data Structures And Algorithms

    Meta and Google interviews are fairly similar, so I recommend these 2 article as well:

    Can you do another interview or 2 before Google? This will get your adrenaline pumping and will prepare you for what the Google interview will be like.

    Also, is this a phone screen or on-site?

    Can't reply to a particular comment, but thanks for replying guys. Alex, I have started DS Algo masterclass and bought LC premium as well. No rahul, I am already holding an offer but prep needed for that is not what is needed here and have no scheduled interviews for now. And yes, this round is phone screen.

      Phone screen shouldn't be too bad. If you have a solid mastery of the Top 50-ish most common LeetCode Easy/Medium tied to Google, you should be okay.
