I just took a C++ Brainbench test as a pre-screen for a potential employer. What can you do in a 16-question test, I thought. But….
This test was effective at identifying whether or not I could identify several key gotchas in the C++ language. On several of the questions I said to myself, “Ahh…this question is designed to determine if I understand X!” And then I had a short amount of time to figure out if I did. Whew!
