That is a totally wide open question. There is no way anybody is going to know what questions your interviewer will ask. Best bet is to use google and find sql interview questions. During the interview it is ALWAYS the best idea to only talk about what you know and admit when you don't know a topic.

There is no defined list of scenario questions that I'm aware of.

From personal experience SQL Developers are not just "pure developers" as the features within SQL grow. I'd expect you'd be questioned on TSQL performance, security and even .NET.

Just be honest about your experience and admit the fact when you don't readily know the answer to a question.

I will give you some ideas:

Be sure you understand indexes and the differences between them (specifically clustered and nonclustered, but not limited to just these).

Understand normalization and denormalization, the why's and how's (my experience, more on the whys than the hows, but ymmv).

Performance tuning, don't need to be an expert, but be able to explain how you would performance tune a procedure or slow database. Using past experiences in this area helps as you can demonstrate how you worked through a problem. Shows the interviewer more than just what was asked.

I have had interviews where I was asked to name DBCC commands i would use in some situations. I simply said I wasn't sure, that's where I would use Books Online to figure out what I needed. Don't think they liked that answer, but I'm not a fan of memorizing commands and syntax because that is what BOL is for, reference.

Cool
