    Best go to place for interview preparation

    The IK curriculum for interview preparation is well-designed and focuses on teaching problem-solving strategies rather than just providing solutions. The coaches are patient and helpful in answering questions. Mock interviews with instructors from FAANG companies provide valuable feedback for improvement. Overall, the program is highly recommended for anyone looking for structured interview preparation.

    Tough but well worth the effort

    Was really needing some foundational knowledge and structured learning for interview prep and InterviewKickStart delivered. I don't have the computer science background (mainly self-taught) but after going through the learning material/videos/classes, I feel more confident in what I am doing. There's still so much to learn and the interviews are still really tough but InterviewKickStart sets you on the right path. The coursework isn't cheap but it's of good quality and value. Just keep i...

    Fantastic organisation! Great support! Sophisticated team!

    The courses I was given were properly detailed and inclusive. I could get insight about the boundaries of lectures and topics. Practical examples were so instructive. When it comes the mockup interviews, everyone I spoke with, from IK, provided excellent guidance and took the time to answer all of my questions.

    Interview Kickstart is the real deal

    I joined interview kickstart in May of 2022, I gained way more in confidence and technical skill than the cost of the course

    There arent many cons, but I do have to mention:
    I do feel that the technical prep material could be better, I find myself using other sources in this area

    However, I feel the course is 100% worth it to purchase for the following 3 areas
    1. The support team for the program is exceptional, and has helped me with every special request and gone abo...

    Best interview prep program i ever had

    Pros:
    Great domain specific programs 
    This was very helpful for me when I cam across interviews
    Algorithms & DS patterns classes are really helpful
    Interview prep for Salary negotiations - getting to talk with actual technical recruiters are very helpful

    Cons:
    classes on Algorithm and DS - 4hours is too long and sometimes it extends beyond that.
    These classes also require you to come prepared with study materials, This is really a lot for anyone who is workin...

    Glad to be part of IK

    I did an extensive research on multiple bootcamps for interviewing with FAANAG, and IK turned out to be the winner. Till today I have not changed this thought, I like IK because of the following:
    1. Good curriculum
    2. Good Instructors
    3. Good Operations Team and Mentor Teams
    4. Mock Interviews with people from FAANG 

    Could do better:
    The resources used by IK are little bit clumsy to me, like UpLevel (Very difficult to manage videos in Additional Library) and spread ...

    Solid coaching if you are willing to put in the effort

    pros: highly educated, trained , expert instructors In depth curriculum covering all the necessary topics (avoiding things that we might not come across in an actual interview) Tailored specifically at cracking interviews Targeted for quickest time to solve a given problem  The material is for us to refer back for any time later.  cons: Pricey Sometimes classes seem too long and can be a drain

    Full Stack Engineering

    TL/DR
    + Exceptional DS and Algo prep material and live classes
    + Test review sessions and walkthroughs
    + Pace (not attended a class? the videos are all recorded from multiple instructors for you to review later)
    + System Design (one of the best)
    + Mock interviews (15 of them! I did not even end up using all)
    + Technical assistance
    + peer-peer discord channel

    - pricey, but worth it
    - long classes in the weekends, but I expected it and was prepared to spend t...

    I really enjoyed the live classes. The supplemental learning material is outstanding. Every question you tackle builds on top of what you have already learned consequently you don't feel overwhelmed by the large amount of course material. The progression of the course is very organic. The entire curriculum is setup to help you improve your engineering and problem solving skills simultaneously. There are many IK instructors I admire but  Omkar Deshpande deserves special mention. He can br...

    Amazing experience with IK Backend Engineer Program

    I have enrolled in backend engineering program about 3 months ago with Interview Kickstart and I must say, it has been the best educational investment I have made in my life. Shortly after starting the program, I was already feeling confident about acing the interviews. Before even completing the program (and even without taking any mock interviews they offer), I have interviewed with various companies including start ups and FAANG companies and have received multiple offers and accepted...

    Next level Software Engineering skills

    Preparing for software interviews (tech) is no joke and Tier 1 companies are entirely a different LEAGUE. But if you have the RIGHT TECHNIQUE and MINDSET the probability of cracking TIER 1  interviews increases 1000 fold. This is where Interview kickstart helps exceptionally. I personally went through 1st part of my training and i can already see the shift in my coding skills. I used to be scared of TREES , GRAPHS and DYNAMIC PROGRAMMING problems. But now i am ENJOYING solving these prob...
