    I have received email from IBM on first round of the selection day. I applied graduate software developer position. Regarding to the content of that day, business presentation - talk with graduate - confirmatory test - programming test.

    Can anybody tell me:
    1. Is the confirmatory test same procedure as IPATO I took weeks ago including all three parts? or only particular part of the test? I think that I need prepare it again as I only finished 2/3 of the questions during the IPATO test and it was luck that I got passed. Maynot luck next time.

    2. what is the main content of programming test? I only know C/C++/ windows and never used Unix/Java. Can anybody give any clue how I can prepare it?:confused:

    Thanks for any advice.
