How to begin preparing algorithms?

I am in 2nd year of CS but in our curriculum we have algorithms in 3rd year and data structures currently. But I wish to prepare them now as I have much time which I don't feel would be there in 3rd year.

So what are some good resources for preparation?

So shall I begin with CLRS( the thick one)? Or those resources.

if u r a beginner in algorithms then dont head towards CLRS start off your journey with geeksforgeeks and slowly you will automatically realize whether you should move towards CLRS or not. CLRS demands good grasp of Discrete maths so choose accordingly
