Reason for writing this book is that when you search for interview questions on internet, you get multiple links, many may be irrelevant also. After browsing few links, you may quit. I was one of them. It’s not always feasible to search on internet whenever you need it. This book is compilation of questions from many such links, and few of my own. I’ve given credits in the reference section to those links.
