Before you get into the interview room you must know that you would be tested for three skills in the interview room—Knowledge, Problem Solving Skills and Social Skills. None of these can be tested in a multiple choice question written test. So the written test is used more as a first filter to check whether you are up to the mark or not. Once that is confirmed, you get a chance to appear for an interview. You might be led to believe that in the interview room what matter is your personality, how smartly you answer questions, how are your mannerisms, etc. In fact the truth is much farther than that. All of these in our estimate have only 10% importance. Much more weightage is given to your knowledge and problem solving skills. If you are found good in these areas, then only the interview panel would be even interested in checking your social skills. With this in mind, I have divided this book into two sections—"Questions From The Interview Room" and "Programming Tasks". The first section contains questions that are very commonly asked in the interview rooms. The second section contains a programming task and questions created around that task. These questions help evaluators find out your problem solving skills and the approach that you take in solving a programming problem.
I have created these questions out of experience that I had in conducting hundreds of interviews for our company as well as when I was called in as technical expert in other interview rooms. I sincerely hope that you would benefit from the experience that I have tried to share with you in this book. I am sure that if you practice the questions in this book enough, you would not face any problem in clearing the Interview in C Programming. I hope you will find this book useful.
