Google Data Science Interview Questions

Here are some Google DS interview questions I got/some colleagues got during our Google DS interviews:

  • How do you choose the number of resamples in bootstrapping?
  • Give an example of a situation where you use mean and/or median.
  • Explain overfitting.
  • How do you evaluate the performance of a model?
  • How do you solve an overfitting problem?
  • Describe lasso to non-tech people.
  • How does Lasso solve an overfitting problem?

These definitely aren’t the most challenging questions if you prepare for them ahead of time. Good luck to those who are interviewing soon!


If anyone has questions about the Google DS interview, feel free to DM me :slight_smile:

Thanks for sharing these questions!

Thanks so much for sharing these!! I’ll be practicing these :slight_smile:

Describing terms to non tech people is always kinda tricky. Glad to know what to look out for! Thanks!

This is extremely helpful! Takes me back to my college days… time to review!
