I'd be interested to know if there are any books on interview questions
order of importance,at least to me)
If you know of any please write them here so everybody can use them.
I will start the list:
1)Test Your C Skills by Yashavant Kanetkar (apart from the fact that it has
some compiler-dependent questions and some deprecated feature questions
I don't have any other book to use for this)
2)Java/J2EE Job Interview Companion By K.Arulkumaran(I haven't yet tried it)
continue the list below please.
The thing is that is hard to learn that sort of stuff from just reading. I would more recommend playing around with things and referring to books as needed. You'll end up with a much deeper understanding of why things are they way they are.
Usually I would ask the candidate to talk about something they found particularly interesting or challenging from a technical POV. I can appreciate people not revealing anything particularly confidential but in any decently sized project there will be plenty of things that can be talked about without telling any trade secrets (and in many cases without even giving any more information on what the system actually did than what is on your CV). The techniques could even be old hat now - for example I wrote a custom web based system that was completely data driven from XML (transformed by XSL) with regular weekly updates for a very small commercial TV station. No-one will bat an eye at that now - but in 2000 when I did it those techniques were still quite new. I would expect myself to be able to talk with passion about that system and what design choices I had to make - indeed why make it XML/XSL driven in the first place. If I include a few details about the code - all the better. It shouldn't need to take a long time - fifteen minutes will do. You could even talk about a personal project or some open source you work on. It is the passion and being intimately familiar with a code-base that I am looking for. Obviously for people straight out of uni (or otherwise looking for their first programming job) they don't necessarily have experience on a real project so I have to look for something slightly different - but everyone knows that upfront as they will be going for a trainee/junior post.
How do you choose between a List and a Set when picking a data structure?
What are the four visibility modifiers and what do they mean?
Describe what is meant by "overloading"? Can you overload a static method?
About 15 of those will easily fill 30 minutes.
