CORE JAVA Interview Questions You'll Most Likely Be Asked


In my opinion, the primary value of this book is not the sample interview questions at the end, but the questions about the basics of Java that appear before that. The sample interview questions are generic and I have seen them in many forms over the last few years. Therefore, the knowledge within them can be found in many other venues.
Some of those questions are:

*) Tell me about yourself
*) Why did you leave your last job?

The real value for developers is the pointers that are the consequences of the Java questions in the first section. Some of those questions are:

*) What is an abstract class?
*) What is the difference between an interface and an abstract class?
*) What are static variables?
*) What is an interface?

As you read the questions, you are prompted to conduct an internal overview of your knowledge about the topic and how you would answer the question. Reading the answer then helps you understand how well you answered the questions and where you probably need to refresh your understanding. Even the most experienced developers will suffer some knowledge rot of the basics over time if they do not regularly apply specific features of the language.
