If you search on amazon.com, you can find a number of books on job interview Q&A. Alternatively Google for "Java Interview Questions and Answers" as there are a number of free articles and blogs on job interview Q&A.

Yep.

You are better off reading from a book about these topics than to read a book on 'interview questions'

You should look for a book having interview questions only if you are short of time. If you have good enough time(say about 1 to 2 months) then I would suggest to use separate books on these topics to gain good knowledge.

The Java and Enterprise Java technologies/frameworks are very vast and it is really worth refreshing prior to job interviews. Preparation is vital and shows in the quality of your answers and confidence. Interviews are not technical contests to see who gets the most questions right. No one can predict what questions are going to be asked, but one needs to make sure that he/she gets the questions on basics right. No one is going to get all the questions right. Preparing for some of the open-ended questions will put you in a better position to market your skills more effectively.

Interview is not an exam where a person read some books, model questions and answers, pass the exam and it's done. Companies, interviewers and candidates should understand that it's a evaluation process. For a person prospective the focus should be is it a right company where I can achieve what I want to. From the company prospective, it should be can a person do for which we are going to pay him/her. It is not an exam where you read books, answer questions and it's done. You can brush up, but it's more of a practical knowledge and skills which are not in books.

It's also a game. You have to play by the rules, or you lose. Maybe not in programming, but in some jobs, you do have to learn things off by heart. My son-in-law is a teacher, and they expect you to know lists of acts of parliament about teaching. If they ask a question, and you can say, "The 2008 act says you mustn't have more than 123456789 children in a class", that will improve your chances no end.

Even after 10+ years of experience with Java & Enterprise Java, brushing up prior to interviews is something I attribute to being able to get multiple job offers even in tough job markets. I started brushing up when I had only 1 year experience. I used to do it the hard way by going through 15+ books and 50+ online resources. Now a days, I only go through a few books that are written for interview preparation. I don't have a photographic memory like a very few do. A little preparation can help you present yourself in a better light than people who are more qualified.

There is a difference between brushing up(ie revision) and getting knowledge. You need to have a good base then only should look for so called interview books. Otherwise it doesn't help you in long run.

Welcome to the Ranch

You can read all about interviews, but it would be far better to have a friend or colleague ask questions. As I said, a game. You don't learn tennis from a book, but with a racket and ball. You don't learn answering questions from a book, but from being asked them.

That is another purpose of the interview book. While going through the Q&As, you can identify what you know and what you don't know. This will be a good self-assessment and helps someone to concentrate on acquiring more knowledge and experience. The books I have written covers each answer with diagrams, code snippets, etc to a reasonable level. Obviously it can't give in depth explanation. It is up to the reader to identify the areas that needs more learning and use the other resources to get more knowledge on a particular topic.

Secondly, if you are beginner, it is better to have some level of awareness about the technologies, concepts, and key areas than having no idea at all. It is harder to explain, but if you get a sample PDF download, you can see what I am saying. But I agree that you need to know some Java.

guys , i know interview books can not add productivity to your work , but in interview people ask questions which you hardly implement in your coding , how many people did think about difference between extending thread class a and implementing runnable interface , but in interview they do ask such question . it is same as developers many times caught unaware of business logic. they only limited to framework implementation. [which should not be the case]. i search it on google , got one good book as well but th8 is also limited to J2EE , still hibernate, spring and struts are untouched.
