Recursion is like a stem on broccoli. Breaking off each stem is simply reducing the whole by using smaller parts of itself.

Hello, as an MS employee I have created an interview prep guide for Microsoft interviews, based on my and my colleagues' recent interview experiences. The guide has questions you should expect along with our answers that got us into Microsoft. You can find it here: (please do not forget to also look at the reviews at the bottom of that page). Thanks and good luck! Ryan
