Says the password is incorrect. I tried copy and paste from your post as well as typing it in using both lower and upper case.

It worked using just lower case.
The document does not have a great format. It's hard to read.

For all those who would use such a thing... Caveat Emptor!

And while you're studying such canned answers, be advised that a lot of us don't ask canned questions on interviews especially for senior positions. For example...


{Me} How many columns can a table have?
{You} 1,024!
{Me} So why are INSERTs designed to handle up to 4,096 columns?
{You} {wtf???}

Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

The answer will be a huge surprise to those not used to this type of questioning... especially if I've already told them that the environmet they'll be working in is 2005 ;-)

I know. To support a bad database design.

The idea might be good for a cheat sheet (poorly executed) but it shouldn't be taken as a guide for a good interview.

Actually, it could be two questions. One for SQL Server 2005 and one for 2008.

But this is what I'm talking about. Even if all the answers in such cheat sheets were correct (and I assure you, they are not) and someone were able to recite every single answer without hesitation, they still wouldn't pass a real interview because such cheat sheets don't teach a person how to think and they certainly don't give you "experience" for a senior position.
