The tests were pathetic: all of them were of the kind written by students who have just learned the basics of the language. Very poorly formatted. Very poor identifiers. Not at all realistic or representative of real-life commercial code. The questions were multiple choice like "Does this compile?", "What will be the output?". All those "Does this compile?" questions are completely pointless since every modern IDE will tell you instantly whether the program compiles or not. The tests assumed that people write Java in Notepad. It was clear to me that Nexios themselves have zero understanding of the Java test they are asking candidates to do. It was clearly a test suite they licensed from a (very low quality) external supplier. Conclusion: typical clueless recruiting firm.
