    Default What's a good resource to practice Algorithms?

    Hello -

    I'm a beginner learning core JAVA. I'm looking for a resource for BEGINNERS (website, book, video, etc) to help me practice writing algorithms in plain English for a particular problem statement, in which I would later convert into JAVA syntax? I can't find seem to find any good resources on the web to practice writing algorithms for problem statements to test/improve my logical skills.

    Can anyone share any resources that have problems statements w/ solutions? This way I could compare the algorithm I come up with against the solution and get better at writing algorithms.

    Thanks in advance!

    You can use algorithms from a pc and if you're on a forum or blog. Such functions can include upload, download, save files on and from your pc and from their blog. The algorithm is a set of instructions given to a computer to complete a task. For example if the blog has no available methods, like buttons to add a picture, but it does give text respond user inputs area, then you would use Algorithms to put pictures on, save files, or upload files from your pc. This algorithms guarantees a task will be completed. You must make up your algorithm to best describe your task you want to complete. Since this is a chrome I'm on, I'll use html to get the algorithms going and knowledge of Java or C++ will do. The algorithm guarantees that a task is performed. Like file upLoad.

    Define your task first to complete. Then make an algorithm to complete the task.

    This thread was started several years ago. The OP will probably not see any responses.

    Definition from google:
    An algorithm is a procedure used for solving a problem or performing a computation. Algorithms act as an exact list of instructions that conduct specified actions step by step in either hardware- or software-based routines. Algorithms are widely used throughout all areas of IT.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
