Summing it Up: Survival of the Fittest

Surviving and thriving in the technical interview is both an art and a
science. Interviewing is a skill, and as such, the more you do it, the better
you’ll get.

A few resources to help you along the way include:

Ace the Technical Interview, by Michael Rothstein, published by
Osborne/McGraw Hill. Includes updated information about Java, Visual Basic,
UNIX, PowerBuilder, Oracle, and other technologies.

Finally, remember that if you don’t get a job offer as a result of this
interview, it doesn’t mean the time was wasted. Consider it a learning
experience. After all, many people pay good money for practice exams
that allow them to get familiar with what the experience of taking a
certification exam will be like. You got this practice interview for
free — and if you’re smart, you’ll analyze it and use it to help you prepare
for the next one.
