    Caj, i dont get it

    being a hiring manager who is also a computer programmer. I give all candidates a test with 2 problems. 1 to read a program and explain what it does, and 2 to write a program to accomplish a particular task. Syntax is unimportant but logical thinking is. You'd be surprised at the amount of people who technically qualify just fine based on their resume, but who fail miserably on this fairly simple test.

    I'd say I catch those talentless C and D students before they screw up the department with their lack of ability.
