Submitting a Problem on the is really tiring job.

So Topcoder has understood this problem a short time ago and they have launched the Website Arena along with the Old Java GUI

Now Comes starting with Topcoder Problems!

  1. You have already listed the Solution in your own answer. No other way to go better in Topcoder!
  2. Just appear in the SRMs in Topcoder and try to solve Div 2 250 & 500 pt problems.
  3. When not in SRMs you can look through any Random SRM Archive from the arena itslef from the Practise Section and Practise With Them.
  4. Last and the most important pt -> Dont take problem solving as your Duty! Take it as Fun!

Thats IT!
