Any good books and resources to get puzzles and logic problems to test your intelligence and even sharpen a rusty brain ?
I am looking for something that most people should be able to solve in 10-30 minutes. I am not looking for "complicated" problems or
programming problems which will could take days or a team of people to solve.

I am a "newbie" too. Please verify my answers before you accept them.

I haven't read any lately, but a book on brain teasers is probably what you are looking for. The problem with these questions is that they largely test whether you have seen the problem before rather than your intelligence.
