-- Brush up on the Java/JEE fundamentals
-- Reflect back on your achievements
-- Reserach the organization you are interviewing with
-- Learn the Do's and Don'ts at the interviews.

Also be honest, don't "pretend" that you know something when you don't. Chances are the person interviewing you will be more experienced, so they'll sniff that out easily

Dear Arulk Sir,

Thanks for your reply.
The thing whenever I think that I've covered a topic, I learn that something new has been
asked at interview.
So that really takes me back to start it all over again from scratch..

Please Help me, cause I really don't want to mess in interviews.

Maybe it is because I interview more experienced candidates, but I always interview from actual projects... meaning talk about something that you worked on, and tell me a story about it. We will get to the technology, etc., but by then, I kinda understood what you did -- and know that you don't have the API memorized.

I find it weird to test a candidate on an API, as that is just dumb luck; the candidate could have just read a book on the very subject a few days ago.

I agree with what Henry says, I mean who cares if someone can recite the whole SE6 library, backwards, in binary. I'd be more interested on finding out if past experiences would enable the candidate to solve a particular problem the role may include.
