This book is a must have for any software engineer. It doesn't matter whether you already have the perfect job or you are a college graduate, who needs to find your first job - it provides a good base for how programming interviews are done in the majority of the software companies.

This book is a must read for coding interview preparation. Not only the questions are great but Gayle explains the approach to breakdown different problems into steps so that you can easily tackle problems you have never solved before. This book helped me in my placement interviews and I was able to crack interviews of companies like Oracle, Accenture easily.
