Im applying to one company for a job and was lucky enough to get through the first round of the interviews. One part of it was a "technical test". Before the interview i was told that there will be one and that it was not tailored towards any particular programming language. When i found out this fact, then i thought they will be either testing us and letting us use our favourite programming language, pseudocode or the test will have nothing to do with programming - i.e. math questions.
So, the test turnoud to be a mixture of pseducode and math. The idea was: you are given a scenario and then have to answer 5 questions. i.e given the scenario what datastructure would you use to hold this piece of data or write a program or pseudocode so that it counts these green bananas using your datastructre etc.
Now, on the companys website it is written that the second round of interviews will also involve a technical test. However, i have no additional information about it (i.e. whether any programming language is required) since they did not send me any details yet.
So my question is: in what best possible way can i prepare for it. I mean, i am just tired of implementing datastructures or sorting algorithms as my practice because before every interview i had i was doing it, and they never showed up.
I know, it's a pretty vague question but what would you do in my situation. Pick a random problem, write pseudocode of it and implement it? I know that you either know how to code or not but there are always things you can brush upon before the interview like Comparable vs Comparator or other different stuff.
