seriously, here are some real technical interview questions from a list used by a large multinational for an entry level Java or C++ programmer
- explain protected vs private vs public data members and methods
- explain overloading and overriding
- what is polymorphism
- what is inheritance
- what is encapsulation
- give an example of where you might use a static method
- explain up casting and down casting
- what is an abstract class
- explain multiple inheritance and interfaces
- if you have a tree of derived classes, what order are the constructors run
- how do you deal with errors
