The interview process for a quantitative developer focuses heavily on algorithms and data structures with bits of math brain teasers dropped in. A quantitative trader interview is the complement of a quant-dev interview: math brain teaser heavy with bits of algorithm and data structures dropped in. The brain teaser section of both the quant prep books cover a variety of math topics. The questions test basic math but in novel and interesting ways. The two pointer technique questions on leetcode will aid in building my algorithm skills. Materials He can work out from D's ignorance giving M the answer that it is not a 2 or 7 (else D would have known in the first place). A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

How should I prepare?

Try using a build system, do not use an IDE. I prefer the naive makefile and the advanced CMake. (My personal view is Autotools is unpretty and out-dated.) IDEs are nice to work with, but helpless for interview prep. A "file MD5" is a hash that gets computed from the file contents, and is reasonably unique based on that content. All shadow libraries that we have indexed on here primarily use MD5s to identify files. Brush up on prob stats from college and practice! There are a lot lot of online resources on this, attaching some below. comments on the usefullness: 5 for high frequency or algo trader/researcher, pricing quants (model validation roles), start arb strategists.

With the initial interview largely assessing analytical skills, subsequent interviews may focus on in-depth quant concepts related to the industry and to broader personality characteristics, such as how you weigh a given set of options, how you manage your time and why you’re drawn to working in that particular industry.

Here is a short but interesting article on Expression Template that examplifies some basic usage of C++ templates. I don't know the real birthday: How can I know for sure that C doesn't know the real birthday? Well I know the month. If I were told the month were December, then the options are Dec 1, Dec 2, Dec 8. In which case, C could know the real birthday, which violates the bullet point above. So I can't have been told December is the month. Same logic goes for June. A told you only the month of his birthday, and told your colleague C only the day. After that, you first said: "I don't know A's birthday, C doesn't know either." After hearing what you said, C replied: "I didn't know A's birthday, but now I know it." You smiled and said:"Now I know it too." After looking at the 10 dates and hearing your comments, your assistant wrote down A's birthday without asking any questions. So what did the assistant write?

Let D be the day of the month of A's birthday, we have D belongs to the set {1,2,4,5,7,8}. If the birthday is on a unique day, C will know the A's birthday immediately. Among possible Ds, 2 and 7 are unique days. Considering that you are sure that C does not know A's birthday, you must infer that the day the C was told of is not 2 or 7.
