1.0 out of 5 stars Just not useful, 30 Sept. 2004
This review is from: Conducting the Programmer Job Interview: The IT Manager Guide with Java, J2EE, C, C++, UNIX, PHP and Oracle Interview Questions! (IT Job Interview) (Paperback)
For starters this book is focused on large US enterprises, and talks much about the use of polygraph testing applicants, not asking questions to reveal a candidates age, not bothering with people who's references might not have English as their first language, and how to spot people who'll do overtime without wanting to be paid for it (and other ways to screw over your employees). Anyone not working for the HR Director of a large US Corp will find the first half of this book usless.
The second half gets into sample techinical questions. Unfortunately most of these too simplistic, redundant, misleading, don't have sample answers, or even have incorrect sample answers. Also there is no time devoted to how to interpret answers, or how to probe once an answer is given.
To top everything off there are many many spelling and gramatical errors in the book. The book itself advises to be wary of people who make spelling and gramatical errors in a supposedly well crafted and reveiwed document (like a CV or book) - it fails here by its own standards.
