How do i understand algorithm fast..?

I’m a student of BCA and im not getting a single thing about algorithm…
What approach i need to take to understand algorithm

What kind of algorithms? Example?

While I find the question a bit naive, I’d like to suggest an approach I find helpful in studying algorithms.

Follow this simple “algorithm” :stuck_out_tongue: :

  1. Read and try to understand a new topic.
  2. Pretend like you’re explaining it to someone who has very little/no knowledge about it.
  3. Find gaps in your own learning and rectify them.

Interestingly, this idea popularly goes by the name “Feynman Technique”.

You can refer to:
