General Tips: Be confident ,most of interviewers are quite helping and polite ,consider them as your friends . While solving all the question maintain a healthy interaction , keep discussing and tell him about your approach in detail. Keep it engaging . Try to provide all the solutions from brute to optimal step by step ,they are generally more focused on your thinking skills, even if u get stuck in any question ask (him/her) for hints and discuss what ever comes to your mind. If u don’t know about any topic , u can politely tell him(that I have not studied this topic) it’s completely alright , he will ask u something else. Don’t lie or exaggerate about your skills.

Maintain a positive attitude.
