Your main focus should be on these questions and the surrounding knowledge if you are applying for an embedded internship position or a junior embedded developer position


If you are applying for a position that demands 2 years of experience, then I suggest focusing on the easy and the medium difficulty level questions.


If you are applying for a position that needs more than 2 years of experience then I suggest you read the entire eBook!
