Re: Answers to Most Common Interview Questions (response to post by slex)
If you can gain an advantage over others by looking at previous interview questions why not do so? Why put yourself at a potential disadvantage by not doing so?

The worst you have done is prepared yourself for the type of questions that *may* be asked.

If you go into a technical interview with no knowledge of a subject other than what you have gleaned from previous interview questions then you are a obviously a fool.

Failing to properly prepare for an interview when you have an opportunity to do so is possibly even more foolish though.

A decent interviewer should be able to spot any imposters. If they don't then they shouldn't be interviewing candidates in the first place.

I didn't say that memorizing answers was an important skill.
