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. Programming interviews require a different set of skills than day-to-day programming, so even expert programmers often struggle if they don't know what to expect. 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. After you've worked through this book, you'll approach your interviews with confidence, knowing you can solve any problem that stands between you and the job you really want.

Programming Interviews Exposed:

  • Leads you through the job search process, including the most effective techniques for employing LinkedIn and other social networks
  • Teaches you the techniques you need to solve any interview problem
  • Illustrates the full thought process of application of these techniques to real interview problems with step-by-step solutions
  • Solves each problem with code in C, C++, C# or Java, with emphasis on object-oriented solutions
  • Includes new chapters on sorting and design patterns and new questions on 64-bit computing and secure programming practices

I worked with the data science association on their new standards for "Data Scientist" interviews (entry salary of $125,000), and both real questions and after interview polls were included for the biggest names in data today, from the web to corporate and government IT. "Data Scientist" is one of the hottest new jobs out there today, and some companies are even forming CDSO jobs--Chief Data Science Officer!

To begin, ALL FOUR of the books in this review are 5 star "superstars" for IT interviews. The two problems are, my library customers want to know the top two, and our Amazon shoppers want to know if they can get away with one, two, three, or if they have to buy all four! Of course the answer depends both on the focus of your resume, and the overlap/focus in the four books.

First, the summary, by author, title/Amazon link, year published/edition, number of pages, trim and cost, problems included, main language(s) foci. These four are the most frequently purchased by the over 100,000 libraries (including corporate technical libraries and schools as well as private and public) in our database. (Note: page counts are via visual inspection at the time of this writing, not Amazon stats. Pages can vary with on-demand books.).

I was a Software Engineer Intern at Facebook before. This book provides an introduction level of text about how those job interview processes go. As a student who never worked at industry before, it is really useful to get know all those details before hand. However, for the problems part, I felt there is a miss in there since there are not enough problems (although those problems are well-chosen for sure).

After reading this book and having some initial shaky phone interviews, I have to find some other materials to sharpen my problem solving skills. Since personally I know all the basic algorithms and data structures, what I need is practicing lots of problems to apply those skills. I borrowed one copy of Elements of Programming Interviews: 300 Questions and Solutions from my friend which provides rich problems (a little too much to me at that time but definitely a great resource from practice perspective).

In conclusion, this book is good for you to know the interview process (but not enough for others), and you should definitely look for some other materials for practice.

Format: Paperback
Programming Interviews Exposed (PIE) should be the very first one book seriously talking about how to prepare for programming interviews. Its release clearly sets a standard for all following similar books, like Cracking the Coding Interviews and Elements of Programming Interviews. PIE use interesting and real interview problems as a unit to discuss about the solution, and possible pitfalls you may face during real interviews. However, since the content of this book has not being updated for a long time, my friends and I always joke about that people should not start their interview problems if they cannot solve PIE's problems; those problems are too easy from the point of view nowadays. Therefore, please don't treat this book as an elixir for your programming interviews; you should find some others if you are serious.

I have been worked at software companies for years, and every time my colleagues and I talked about Programming Interview Exposed, we always think this book is the most classic one, but could be better if more problems are added and the contents definitely need a huge overhaul (instead of minor revisions). The authors did explain the process of interview in a detailed way and use few problems as examples to explain the thought process for approaching and solving problems. However, it did not provide the most important thing when you practice and prepare for your interview---more problems with codes to let readers further exercise on this because no one is naturally born to problem solving; everyone needs to well-practice before they actually want to land a offer for their dream company. As a result, I would like to see the authors add more problems in the future.

It would be great if it has more examples to explain and exercises for us to work on. It covers a lot of topics but not deep enough. It is more like introductory book to give you an idea.

I couldn't find anything different than what you could find in different forums. I'd rather recommend Schaum's Outline of Data Structures with Java, especially if you are not comfortable with data structures or want to learn data structure with enough details.
