BigOQuiz: C++ Standard Library Algorithms

I’ve reworked bigoquiz.com, which I created a few weeks ago. to allow multiple quizzes instead of just the default quiz about the Big-O complexity of algorithms and data structures. For some quizzes it also now offers reversed questions, asking you for the question that matches the answer.

For instance, there is now a C++ Standard Algorithms quiz. You could, for instance, check that you know the descriptions of the Sort Operations functions. Or you could check that you know the names of those Sort Operations functions based on their descriptions (or as multiple-choice). Maybe this is one way to get more familiar with the many standard C++ algorithms that we often don’t realize are available. I hope this helps me as I strive to use “no raw loops“.

As before, you can track your progress in each section of the quiz, and identify problem questions that you keep getting wrong.


I’ve also added a Design Patterns quiz, based on the patterns mentioned in the Head-First Design Patterns book.

The user profile page also now shows overall statistics for all the quizzes that you’ve tried.
