    Default Pre-Interview Test

    I have the opportunity to take a pre-interview test that might lead to an interview. It is for a Computer Technician I position for a medium sized city. What are some of the questions that I would expect to be on this test? I have researched some of the possible general knowledge questions. Also, I have found some basic IT questions. Will there be other IT-related questions that I could expect on this test?

    Thank you!

    Unfortunately without them telling you anything else that is really all there is to go on. I read descriptions ranging from "A+ and Net+ certified" to "breathing." So it really depends on the job itself I guess.

    I thought about asking more questions, but I was not sure at the time if that was a good idea. Since, I am A+ and Network+ certified; I should be able to understand most of the technical questions that will be on the test. Also, I feel that I am as well prepared for this test as possible.
