Preparation Tip

Tip 1 : Practice at least 250 Questions, Give yourself enough time for preparation. Cramming won't take you very far. In books, I really liked Elements of Programming Interviews. 
Tip 2 : Make sure to brush up your basics - coding style, OOPs, Language features. They help in making an impression.
Tip 3 : Don't worry about solving the question in the interview. Learn to tackle any random problem with the best of your ability. More often than not, that'd be enough.
