Too Long; Didn't Read

The guide is my personal take and doesn’t represent an official position of YC. I’ve reviewed every public resource on the topic and did over 20 practice interviews with YC alums. The core of your preparation process is writing a document with all anticipated questions and your answers to them. For questions on weakness areas, acknowledge or defend it in one sentence, then go back to strengths in the second. Use simple words and examples, avoid buzzwords or abstract concepts. Be ready for constant interruptions after the first round of questions.
