I have to give my first telephone interview(technical).
The interview will be technical, they will ask me some questions about Metro code warrior, c, C++.
The job is for Palm OS programmer.
Can you guys give me some TIPS and some sample questions?

This is primarily a Java based forum - but perhaps someone here can give you some typical C, C++ phone interview questions.
On the plus side, there are alot of general interviewing tips that apply to everyone in other sections of this forum. Basically what I call PART-I of the interview (the soft skills set - can you get along with others? - will you shorten my lifespan if I hire you?)
I know you said TECHNICAL intervewi - but you get bet your sweet hiney (behind) that the first 5 minutes (minimum) will be spent on general converstation - and that's where ALOT of techies fail.
Here are some links.
Make sure that you scroll through and read ALL the messages.
