It's depends on who is interviewing obviously. But in my experience it focuses on core java questions. Usually starts off with some "duh" questions about java, and progresses to some data structure questions and maybe psuedo coding some simple algorithms.

Of course there's always the chance you'll get one of those interviewers who'll ask you to develop an algorithm that is NOT simple or obvious. One of those stupid questions like people going back and forth over bridges. If you get one of those types of questions, it's probably the "brute force" algorithm where you just try every possible option till the right one is found.

There is an alternative answer if you get a really complicated algorithm. Tell the interviewer which book or website you have seen the algorithm on.
It is one thing to know the algorithm off by heart (and you might get it wrong), it is another to get it right by copying it from a book.

Don't mean to hijack -- but this seems to be a somewhat common question, and ...

I have *never* ever seen a walk-in interview process. Sure, I have seen Job fairs, where everyone is a walk in. But I have never seen a company advertise to allow anyone to walk in for an interview. I guess this is not common where I am at.

Where are these walk-in interviews? Is it really common? (BTW, just wondering. I am not looking for a job... )
