Stay away from this book
I have a solid background in C/C++ and I was hoping to fill in some gaps in other areas with this book. Unfortunately, given the poor quaility of the C/C++ information (and the sometimes-silly stuff in the "how to interview" section), I really don't trust what's in the rest of the volume.

The C/C++ chapter is divided into "beginner", "intermediate", and "advanced" sections. Instead, they should be labeled "unbelievably trivial", "very trivial", and "trivial". Even worse, much of the information is presented in a misleading or incorrect fashion. I suppose this is to be expected, given that the main credentials of the person who wrote the C/C++ section are a music degree and the ability to play the string bass.

If I were giving an interview and I heard a candidate parroting the C/C++ answers in this book, I would promptly show him/her to the door.

Instead, get a copy of: "Programming Interviews Exposed" by Mongan and Suojanen.

Poor
This book suffers from poor editing,poor questions for VB, C++, Java and SQL. Many wrong and poor explanations and answers.

I have no idea about Mainframe, Cisco etc sections.

Only ASP section is worth reading with a comprehensive coverage of the topic.

I have never returned a book. This is the first one which I had to return.
