First things first go to monster.com or any of the other job sites with informational articles and find the obligatory "interview questions" article or post. I know they are out there... Need to know the "general" questions first. Why are you leaving last company, top strengenths and weaknesses, bla bla bla... they are all kinda the same.
Next find out who will be interviewing you. If its a manager, hit the non specific stuff, OSI model, network topology, general security, TCP/IP stuff anyone could ask and answer if given the information before hand.. Because thats what most managers do, read questions off a list.

If you are going to be interviewed by a technical person, or a manager and a tech, hit the specific stuff harder. Find out what kind of gear they use, become farmiliar with the different models, if they use cisco, know that cisco has 2500, 2600, 2800, 7200 routers... you don't need to know everything about each of them, but basic knowledge can take you pretty far. Beyond that knowing what they use can be HUGE.. Even if you don't know a thing about it, showing intrest in a technology they use will win you points. I know this first hand.

Lastly.. if you are uber serious about it, and you have some time before hand. Get someone you know to do the interview first. A technical professional, possible a dummy resume, send them in and get them to write down or remember everything "important" they ask. Have them ask pointed questions.. what technology are you using? What are you going to be using? Anything that might give you the edge beyond what other candidates might know.

That's awesome. I have never thought of that. No better way to prepare than that.

Quick story one interview...

I fumbled 3 or 4 simple questions, because they were "too simple" the kind of niche knowledge you would know if you do it every day, but not important enough to keep at the forfront of your mind 99.99% of the time. One of them I even remembered on the way home from ther interview.. just needed 5 mins to really think about it. The others were just 2.5 seconds to look at and the whole topic came rushing back into my brain... too late of course. Just that kind of little niche issue could drop you down to 2nd or 3rd pick.

One more thnig, a former co-worker did, call the manager up, pretending to be a VAR or resaler asking what products they use, saying you can usually save them X%... Good intel just don't call from your own phone...caller id.

Good advice. I know I have a hard time with recall too, but like you said given a few seconds all the information comes back.
