Discussion on: I don't prep for the 'tech' part of tech interviews; does that work for you, too?

That said, I've had a few interview experiences that have revealed what I consider a major flaw in my approach: it assumes too much about the ability of the examination process to adequately and accurately evaluate.

The challenges given to you during the recruitment process may not reflect the actual activities required by the position. This misalignment is bad for the recruiting company because they will have a hard time getting a candidate that they need. In theory this should make them less competitive than other companies that have more aligned recruitment process.

So you are on the right track I think :)

Unless you are interested in a specific company with a known recruitment process. Then of course you should prepare for the test to increase your chances.
