job interview test, advice needed.

Posted 26 August 2010 - 09:13 PM

Hi I have a interview + test coming up for a embedded software engineer job.

here are some clues / hints as to what might be in it -

Test-
- develop algorithms
- use your knowledge of logic
- mathematics
- problem solving
- computer engineering (NOR statements, equations)

interview
- principles of electronics fundamentals.


I think im pretty good with algorithms - im guessing they will be looking for best algorithms in psuedo code for common problems.

I am good with maths aswell, but im not sure what exactly are they going to ask in logic/ computer engineering, since I have been out of uni for a couple or more years and im starting to scratch my head...

and even though i have a base in electronics, but still it would be good to know what i can revise before the interview...

so please let me know any hints tips clues ideas suggestions you have..

Thankyou

Know your operators. http://www.cplusplus...rial/operators/

As a guess, for the electronics section, be familiar with Ohm's Law, Kirchoff's Law, and brush up on Series And Parallel Resistance Theories. Because I have no clue of what they expect you to know, those are just basic knowledge things that you should know.
