Summary: Advice on books for software engineer logic puzzles for interviews and improve overall skills

I am looking to getting into software engineering, and am having trouble with find the logic puzzle books or websites to prep for interviews. Now of course there lots of logic puzzle type question on the internet, but what I am wondering are there more logic puzzle geared towards software engineering or the fact of the matter is that any logic type puzzle will be good for interview preparation?

Also has anyone recommendations on good logic puzzle books or websites? I have come across brillaint which is okay, but the free version has only limited number of questions. So if anyone has any links or books recommendation it would be much appreciated.

oops I have posted in wrong forum, I ment to put in STEM carers but cant figure how to delete post and post to that forum. Could admin help me move to the correct forum please.

You might look at the Euler project. It's fun.

Job interview preparation is a different ball game, though: soft skills are more useful there than a high score on the puzzles ...

Soft skills means emotional and social intelligence, skills related to communication with humans. The kind of stuff nerds are not supposed to have. :oldbiggrin:
