Reviews - What do customers think about COBOL Programming Interview Questions: COBOL Job Interview Review Guide?

Don't waste your money!  Oct 31, 2007
Who paid the first two reviewers of this book? This book has so many problems.... where do I start?
1) Nothing new is presented in this book. All the questions and answers came from web sites. You can search the web and get the same information. The author does not even make an effort to organize the data or edit the data for accuracy.
2) Some of the answers are wrong. For example, question 87 claims that you can not move a COMP-3 field to an edited field.... so untrue!
3) Some of the questions are repeated. In some cases a slightly different answer is given and in other cases the same answer is given. There are NOT 150 unique questions, just 150 questions. Also, as mentioned above, the same questions are not grouped together, but they are scattered throughout the book. This makes it hard to compare the slightly different answers. The back cover claims there are OVER 150 questions and answers. I guess the key word there is AND. There are 150 questions and 150 answers, which is a total of 300 questions and answers!
4) The index in the back of the book gives the wrong pages. If you think you've seen a question before and look in the index to find it, you'll be lead to the page two pages before the true page. At least the error is consistent!
5) Some of the questions are too theoretical.... in other words, not very applicable for an interview and not important if you are learning COBOL. Again, the author failed to add value by picking the best questions.
really nice book  Feb 26, 2007
I don't see any other books that pay this close attention to a very important job market: Legacy systems. Specifically, COBOL.

Considering that all of the baby boomers who wrote this code and deployed original systems are eithre retiring for good -- or coming out of retirement to work as contract programmers, I think that this
book is the right book at the right time.

It includes information on programming theory like "What does passing by content mean?"

and also practical COBOL-specific issues like "What guidelines should be followed to write a structured COBOL program?"

In any case, I think that COBOL is an often overlooked market, and
anyone that wants a secure job should consider learning COBOL.

This is not a comprehensive programming guide, however - this book
will help you land the job.

if you want to learn COBOL  Feb 21, 2007
Then you should consider this book. This is not a comprehensive
COBOL programming manual - which you should purchase.

Rather, this is a book to help you pick up a job in COBOL. If you
are interested in finding out the most important aspects of COBOL,
and how to best prepare yourself for a job interview in a hurry -
then save yourself some time and purchase this book.

If you need a programming reference, then this is not the book for you.

This book helps you save time if you are preparing for a job.
and that is the purpose of this book.
