I already have a bachelors in a CS related field and graduated a year ago. I feel like I don’t know anything since my major taught me too many things but never in depth about them or even really focused on algorithms. Since about February I’ve been starting to teach myself more code here and with the Odin Project since I do not feel ready for a job at all. I’m doing the basic algorithms and for almost all of them I have to look at the solution. The wording or how the problem is described to me just doesn’t make any sense.
I’m on the “Where do I Belong” one and I do not understand what it is asking at all. I can sort of start some of the problems with a for loop or something but not the actual logic I just can’t grasp. I feel like I’m not learning a lot since I have to constantly look at the solutions. Is there some way I can understand these things better? Arrays quickly overwhelm me and I just get stuck. The hints barely help me.
I just feel like since I’ve been coding most of the time I was in college I should understand these basic ones but I just don’t. Anyone have any advice or help on understanding the questions or how to approach when you just have no idea besides checking the solution?
