Think of a few easy ones, think of a few tough ones and prep answers in your head for both. Relate the answers to previous scenarios that you have dealt with and bingo.

Also - know your own CV inside out (don't be surprised I say this, loads don't).

Thanks Scamp I appreciate the help, I'm a bit nervous but excited nervous, plus Mr Lanark will be v impressed if I arrive in Dubai on Wednesday am and get a job in the pm

Gone over the CV a bunch of times, thought of interesting points and have gone through the JD with a fine tooth comb and made notes regarding relevant experience etc, any other thoughts?
