@prasu_newbie : Just go ahead and solve some problems from the PRACTICE section to get you acquainted to the code chef interface and on-line judge requirements . Solve the enormous input test and test problems first . These are at the bottom of practice section ( easy section ) . Practicing is the best tip forever . There are certain requirements of the on-line judge like name of classes etc. Read the FAQ's and also actually submitting solutions and encountering problems and overcoming will help better
If you need tips on specific areas of computer programming / competitive programming make a post with more specific question .
Meanwhile browse through the previously asked questions and you will find much there , and dont forget to upvote a comment / accept an answer if you find it useful .
Best of luck
Cheers
Happy Coding

@rakeshbubli143 , @vineetpaliwal I have gone through the FAQ and Now i have lot of confusion about which language to use. Please help me regarding this. My preferred languages are c++ , python. But Given that python takes more running time should I avoid using python??

Every language has its advantages and disadvantages. I suggest you master one language(whichever suits you better) and carry on with it. If I were you I would go with c++ (widely used, fast).

Thanx :) But some of my friends told that python is easy to implement when it comes to using large numbers :)

As I mentioned every language its advantages and disadvantages, c++ does not have BigInteger library, but still you can define methods for same in c++.
