Studying interview questions is probaly not the best approach, you will look good until they take you off script.

That said there is an interesting book, directed to managers doing the interviews, Conducting the J2EE Job Interview. Knowing how busy and unimaginative most hiring managers are, there is a good chance they may be using this.

Why help someone else get a job he doesn't have the qualifications for?
Doing that is no different from doing peoples' homework for them (it may even be worse).

Most hirers won't use same questions for each candidate. also I'm usually asked to discuss some of my answers.

Jeroen,

That attitude is not welcome here. It is common for people to ask about interview questions in this forum. Some to get "real world" examples, some because they're a bit misguided and think memorizing them will help them get a job. As this forum is for helping people, in the first case, we provide answers, and in the second, we help "teach them to fish." Your negative attitude violates the "be nice" rule. If you don't want to help him, don't reply. If you think a question is unethical (e.g. we don't allow homework questions to be posted), bring it to my attention. Do not simply piss on someone else's question.

Hi Jeroen !

Why help someone else get a job he doesn't have the qualifications for?
Doing that is no different from doing peoples' homework for them (it may even be worse).


I believe you are exagerating on this one, you must know that many interview questions are so badly or strangely turned that even a qualified person may be unable to answer. One of questions I had once is "what is difference between servlets and Beans", expected answer was "Beans can react on any programmed method while Servlets will react only to doGet/doPost/service methods, nothing else".

You must admit such questions may cause great trouble to any qualified people, because it implies going far beyond of standard use of tools to wonder what could be done or not with them even for unplanned purposes.
So I believe this guy is right to ask for such questions, if he is a morron he will try to learn them by hearth and will learn nothing from it, if he is smart he will try to understand why question is asked in such a strange way and will progress at least by wondering. This is his own business, let him decide of the use he will do.

If you have any doubt please have a look at some real SCJP exam questions : some of them are so vague or strangely turned that even very qualified people may be unable to give a sensible answer (particulary true of this exam at least).

Best regards.

Here is list of questions I can recall:

Difference between ArrayList and LinkedList and why would you choose one over another.
Single Linked List vs Double Linked List
Difference between HashTable and ArrayList. (bit unusual question)
What is string pool and what is affected by it
What is thread, how can it be created and how is it run. What happens if you invoke start() on thread vs run()
Difference between Interface and Abstract class, give a real life example.
Difference between bean and regular class
Different types of beans (session, page, request...)
Idea behind MVC and Struts
Everyone asks SQL joins, selects, iserts..
I'm often asked to draw an ER
POST vs GET
Servlet vs JSP

Here is list of questions I hate:

Worst bug you ever had
Most complex project you've ever worked on
your 3 strenghts and 3 weaknesses
Why do you think you deserve this job
Why manholes are round

That's interesting Rita. I'll tell you that as a hiring manager I rpefer the questions you hate. Not specifically all of those, I think the manhole cover question is actually a poor one, but those types of questions are good. The strength/weakness one I always ask because it goes to how well you can asess your own capabilities.. The complex project one is good, because it focuses on the big picture. The bug one is just a kind of open ended technical question.

I'll ask a couple straight up technical questions, e.g. "how does garbage collection work" but after a few questions, you pretty easily figure out how techically strong someone is.

Rita, the interview questions you disklike are very effective for the hiring manager to evaluate the "non-technical" skills. I have used most of them when conducting interviews. They gave me insight into the person's problem solving, ability to adapt, big picture, etc. type of skills.

The manhole question is just a diversion.

You see, I'm not saying those are bad questions..
Those are just the hardest to answer.
I never remember my complex logic bugs, I only remember those little nasty extra semicolon in wrong place ones that took me days to find.
It was much harder for me to build my first linked list than any other porject I ever worked on.
I think I'm a good developer, that's why I deserve to work within a good team - I just can't say that, too shy maybe? so I just say something else - like I'm organized and hard working bla bla bla...And I'm not being myself.

My favorite interview question:

If you were Bill Gates and could choose anything you wanted, what improvements would you make to Windows and why?

The only wrong answer was "I don't have any ideas", but the answer told me so much about the applicants. It didn't seem to matter when the headhunter told them the question in advance.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
