I usually get past the technical interviews with ease. Which means with this book anyone with basic Java knowledge can answer most of the technical questions correctly. So, with many people already putting most of the basic questions to memory how will your book help me get a job? Or better yet how can I get a job if they only ask the common questions and throw me impossible curve balls not associated with technical questions. Like they ask me why I have been self employeed so long without income and come through the technical interview so easily.

In short how can I get paid for developing better software if I give the same answers as others and have issues working for less than idiots that are unable to write computer applications, but can anwser technical quesitons.

Ther are some SAR type of questions. i.e. Situation, Action, and Results to help with non technical questions. Employers are always wanting well rounded individuals with technical skills, domain knowldge, interpersonal skills etc. Non-technical skills are harder to evaluate. Not many companies give psychometric tests. Some companies do 3 month probation to assess the well rondedness. It is easier to fail on technical side of interview than non-technical.
Why should I lose weight? They make bigger overalls. And they sure don't make overalls for tiny ads:
