Most Amazing IT interview book available; Highly Recommended
I started my job search months ago and was getting turned down left and right. I had no idea what I was doing wrong until I got some information from a recruiter on how to interview. I realized that there was a lot of information and ideas on interviewing I was clueless about. So I did my own research and decided to by this book.
After thouroughly reading it, I was amazed with the things that you can do an Interview. It enlightened me to a new style of interviewing. So I went to my next interview and the hiring manager liked me so much he offered me the management position, I couldn't believe it. This book is #1. If your tired of going on interviews with no responses afterwards. READ THIS BOOK!!! I guarantee you get the job that you want. I did and I did it myself. It really feels good to know you did it. That's All. Good Luck!

This book is a gold mine! Helped me land a great PM job.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a job in IT. After unsuccessfully interviewing for a few positions, my friend told me about this book. It was like finding an answer key for a test! I read the chapters relevant to my situation and prepared a cheat sheet. I went in to my next interview brimming with confidence because I felt prepared for any question they could ask me. I am convinced it made the difference.
The most valuable part of the book for me was the sample questions and answers for specific job titles. During my interview the hiring manager asked three key questions that were straight out of the the Project Manager section of this book. I nailed the questions and got the job. If you are serious about finding a new job, this book is definitely worth your money and time, even if you only read one chapter.

Nice book to have while interviewing
This is a pretty decent book to go thru a couple of times while you are hunting for jobs. For any single person, only a portion of the book would be useful, seeing that it addressess various job functionalities sequentially, so be ready to skip ahead whenever you are reading. The structure of the book is very good, and the language is direct, neither too preachy nor condescending. I liked the fact that I could look up the positions I am after, and base my preparations on what this book tells me to expect : it makes it easier for anybody to know what to prepare for.
At the same time, this book does not pretend to be comprehensive : a Java programmer might easily be asked many more questions than what appear here, and of different types too. But if you are paying attention while going thru the given questions, you could easily identify what exactly you would be found lacking in if you were in the hot seat right this moment.
For the price of a book, definitely worth it.
