Get the job you want by gaining the interview skills you need

Landing a great programming job isn't a matter of luck; it's a matter of being prepared for the unique challenges of the technical job search.

This thoroughly revised and expanded third edition teaches you the skills you need to apply your programming expertise to the types of problems most frequently encountered in interviews at top tech companies today. Step-by-step solutions to an extensive set of sample interview questions simulate the interview experience to hone the skills you've learned.

4Great if you live that close to the hardware, ok otherwise
By Kevin Weber
This book really makes you think about your implementation of interview problems. However, most of his sample solutions are in C/C++. This is fine if you live that close to the hardware, but for a Java programmer it can be hard to interpret considering we can only work with Object references as opposed to pointers or pointers to pointers (something the author leverages in almost every C/C++ solution

5Highly recommended prep book.
By Mark Twain
Very good book to refresh your knowledge before programming interview. I would suggest this book to accompany a solid textbook on algorithms, such as one by Cormen at al.
