What was the technical interview about? Do they ask you questions about programming? I have the MANH interview soon and am not sure how to prepare for the technical interview!

Thanks!

@ Homer Simpson,

The technical interview was simply them asking me to explain a "technical" process on the whiteboard. There was no programming, though I used a programming example in answering this question. The overall interview process requires little preparation, with the exception of the panel interview since I'm assuming you got the question before hand. Again they want to see the following:

1) Logical thought flow
2) Ability to present/explain on a white-board
3) Can assimulate concepts (including programming) quickly

Thanks Boss for the quick reply!

I just came back and I think it went well.
How much time did they take to reply back to you?
