Discussion on: How to get over my fear of algorithms and test when applying for a job

I have found that like with everything else, the change will not happen overnight or in one or two weekends. So take some time out on a daily/other frequency that you have time for and solve coding problems. First step would be to know the basic data structures and algorithms, Big O and then try and solve problems regularly.

All it takes is incremental progress. I found the Python data structures and algorithms book by runestone, cracking the coding interview book and the course on Interview cake to be very helpful.

My journey is still ongoing though. Hope this helps.
