Microsoft Interview Questions: "
Interviewing at Microsoft

Over the years I've been collecting interview questions from Microsoft. I guess I started this hobby with the intent of working there some day, although I still have never interviewed there myself. However, I thought I'd give all of those young Microserf wanna-bes a leg up and publish my collection so far. I've actually known people to study for weeks for a Microsoft interview. Instead, kids this age should be out having a life. If you're one of those -- go outside! Catch some rays and chase that greenish monitor glow from your face!

If you've actually interviewed at Microsoft, please feel free to contribute your wacky Microsoft interview stories.

* Developers using XML

Am I the only one that skipped ahead to 'Senior Developers/Architects' to see if I could cut Scott's mustard?

* But, as long as you verbalize what you're thinking you should be in pretty good shape
* Bring an energy bar or something to snack on between breaks in order to keep your energy level up
