I will soon be hunting for a job in the game industry and I was wondering if anyonw knew what the tests in the industry are like? Any information would be helpful, a link to some sample questions would be ideal! Thank you

I took one once, mostly the questions I was asked were things like:

Given a triangle in screen coordinates, which way is it facing?
Talk about how to manage memory on systems like consoles
Write an optimized C function to do this or that
Some questions on really basic C stuff, hex and binary number problems.
Questions about 3D graphics and stuff
Write an optimized general purpose matrix multiplication function
How to profile and optimize
How you deal with large projects

Stuff like that.

Are you guys talking about what a company might ask you, or is there some kind of standard test?

Proceeding on a brutal rampage is the obvious choice.

Just what a company might ask you. They also sometimes require a written exam to be passed. I was just wondering if someone had a heads up for me on the types of questions I might encounter.
