Resources for an interview
I found this list in this thread @reddit:
- Goto stackoverflow.com and search on “programming questions”, “programming interview”, “programming puzzles”, etc.
- Get this book first: Programming Pearls (2nd Edition)
- Get this book: Programming Interviews Exposed
- Search on google for “amazon interview questions”, “programming interview questions”, etc. Find stuff like this
- Read thedailywtf.com to know what not to do.
- Look up the company on www.glassdoor.com and search for interview questions. They are by company.
- Wikipedia is great for learning about algorithms.
I have that Mock a Mockingbird book mentioned in the above link. Eh… it’s interesting but I don’t think it’s very applicable to interviews I’ve been on. It’s basically combinatorial mathematics. Can’t hurt if you have the time.
Above are blog accounts of Amazon interviews. Pretty accurate.
Optional Book: How Would You Move Mount Fuji. Although, this is not as relevant as it was back in 2000. Puzzle questions are almost gone in interviews, but some of the programming questions could count as puzzles. I believe people interviewing for management positions still get them though.
I do have a couple other good puzzle sites but I can’t find them right now. Bookmarked on another pc.
