About the Author

I have more than 18 years of experience in Software Engineering field. During these years I have participated in hundreds of interviews, both as an interviewee as well as an interviewer.

For most of my career, I had the good fortune of choosing whom I wanted to work for, in what role, and in what capacity - as a full-time employee or as a consultant. I primarily based my decision based on the technologies that I would be working in. Most of the times I had multiple offers when I was looking for a job change.

But things were not always so rosy. In the beginning I had my share of interview failures, disappointments, embarrassments, and rejections. 

It was only when I started focusing on mastering the concepts, rather than reading through random lists of interview questions and answers, that I gradually started seeing success in my interviews.

As I started giving more interviews, I realized that some of the same questions were being asked again and again. All these questions were based on the core fundamentals of the topic or technology that I was interviewing for. 'Master the concepts - Ace the interview' became my philosophy for interview success.

Now I want to help you too - to ace your core Java interview by mastering the concepts.

 This guide contains interview questions and answers from my Java interview preparation notes - the same notes, which helped me master the concepts and succeed with multiple offers every single time that I wanted to change my job!
