Can you clearly explain what the keyword virtual means? [That question eliminates ~75% of people with C++ on their CVs] Abstract base classes? Template specialization? STL? Boost? Any C#?Advanced mathematical knowledge is not required but being able to implement some sort of pricing model accurately and efficiently would be a good start.

1. virtual used for defining interface. 2. work in object context.3. if define pure virtual create abstract class.STL and Boost are libraries. Templates work with different types of data(template parameters), but when you re-define for specific type, that is template specialization.I am thinking to join CQF in June2012, is this can help me to move to C++ Quant developer.

I've answered the virtual question differently in almost all the interviews. Is the right answer to give one definition that covers both virtual functions and inheritance?

Wow, £72 for a new version of this book! Does this have any extra stuff about C++ compared with the usual stroustrup, myers, sutter etc ?

Is there anything missing which cant get you started with as quant developer ? You can discover complex things later, but for a person who doesnt have any finance background , believe me , its the best.
