    I think u need to know all these things ur self first, otherwise how do you know if the applicant has answered it right or wrong...

    However if i remember there used to be a questionnare by Mike Ault for DBA, Developers etc... Try a search on google...

    That's great. What are you going to do when they say "What type of standby database, Logical or Physical?"

    What if the applicant is a frequent visitor of this forum, you are gonna get a DBA who ask the same kinda questions in the same forums while doing daily job.

    Asking how to create table/table partition ?

    Now this is why I like coming here. No where else can I find job related humor that makes me crack up like this place.

    I had experience in an interview where the interviewer asked me all the questions from Mike Ault's questionaire.. I happened to have that on my PDA and had just read them while travelling for interview..
    Though got selected I didn't join them.

    Just for grins I went and looked up Mr. Alut's questionaire (now a book for sale)

    You guys/gals have to check this url out and read the review. I about fell out of my chair.

    The reviewer is right. Some (or shall I say most?) of the books from Rampant are absolutely useless.
