Any reasonably good interviewer will have extensive knowledge of programmming and will be able to tell immediately if you have just learned some questions and answers from the web or from a book.

If you have done any C++ programming at all, go over your own code and see what you have written and why. Take some examples of your work to the interwiew as well - that would be very impressive!. This is your own experience - let the interviewer know about this.

It would also help to just read through a basic textbook on C++. If you do not have much experience and you are trying to fool the interwiewer you will fail badly!!

I have interviewed hundreds of prospective programmers for both private and government employers and it is very easy to pick the frauds!!

Best bet is to be honest - if you dont know something, say so, but show that you are capable of learning.

Good Luck!!
