Practicing for the interview means practicing several behaviors - not just answering questions. You must dress well， watch your body language and posture， practice your manners and eye contact as well as practice answering questions correctly， smoothly， and with confidence.
The practice questions below， in one form or another， account for a large percentage of interview questions. With each question， you are given a series of choices as to how you might answer the question. When you select an answer， you will learn whether your answer is correct-and why. Answering these questions will help you polish your interviewing techniques. The questions and answers in this excercise are generic and， in many cases， must be tailored to your individual situation. Still， the logic behind the answer remains essentially the same.
