    But the first one is definitely not good:

    These definitely do not have the right answer:
    http://www.geekinterview.com/quiz/review/16/1258.html
    http://www.geekinterview.com/quiz/review/16/1260.html
    http://www.geekinterview.com/quiz/review/16/1264.html

    These are a bit dodgy (may or may not be correct answer, depending on circumstances):
    http://www.geekinterview.com/quiz/review/16/1265.html

    These are compiler-dependant (compiler appears to be 16-bit in this case):
    http://www.geekinterview.com/quiz/review/16/1268.html
    http://www.geekinterview.com/quiz/review/16/1270.html

    That's after about half of the 52 questions.

    I wasn't impressed - there were questions that were CLEARLY wrong, others that use undefined behaviour and the answer is dependant on compiler behaviour. Not a very good basis for "good knowledge".

    Those questions are terrible, NOT worth looking at.

    This website has a nice quiz, why not use that?

    Yes, it's almost like GeekInterview actually wants you to fail in interviews...

    But that is the SECOND hit - and it's actually the answers to the quiz you get... ;-)

    Jeez, Geekinterview is one sorry-assed site.

    Every program needs to begin with
    #include <ancient_1980s_assumptions.h>
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Hi everyone,

    I set up a small C quiz some time ago, see http://www.0xe3.com/quiz/.

    The questions/answers are fully ANSI/ISO C9x compliant, but I like to restrain from C99-specific stuff. I'd be glad to hear your comments, or better yet, see you add some questions.

    Greets,
    Philip

    It would be nice to get a summary of the result on the final page, don't you think?

    Some of the questions are quite obscure (e.g. dealing with undefined behaviour that isn't entirely obvious to most people). I think there could be some more basic ones.

    Edit: And for fun, it would be nice to see what the percentage answers for each of the incorrect options where once the answer is given (e.g. when the right answer is given 30.9% of the time, what percentage cover was of the other 2 answers).

    Also, quiz question 0x06a should probably rename the third answer to "undefined", since the current answer is sort of implying that the reader don't know the answer...
