The link to the interviewing guide in video 3 returns a 404 (not found) on the web site -- the data scientist's guide to interviewing. I tried pasting the URL here but the errata form wouldn't let me submit it because of special characters (?).

This link is in the video and on the O'Reilly course page as well.

In explaining the E-greedy algorithm, everything is fine until the last sentence, where it is stated that one would exploit (choose favorite restaurant) with probability E, and explore (try a new restaurant) with probability 1 - E. These probabilities should be switched, i.e. Prob(exploit) = (1 - E) and Prob(explore) = E.
