Business Analyst Interview Questions-Help plz!

Hi, I am applying for a business analyst role at a Insurance company . I have an interview coming up and to be honest, I am not sure what to expect from the interview because it seems a business analyst's description is not consistent from job post to job post. I am assuming it's more in line with what a systems analyst would be doing i.e. Requirments gathering, designing documents, doing some quality assurance tasks, etc. I've seen the same same questions asked by "frogpad" in the earlier threads, So it'd be really great if u c'd tell what questions were asked? Obviously anything is fair game, but what are some common things that I can expect? I appreciate your feedback. Thanks.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,

First see the following PAQ carefully, look at "jimhorn's" comment. May be the question is on IT Business Analyst, but I think it's helpful for any type of Business Analyst. http://www.experts-exchange.com/Miscellaneous/Q_21611059.html

The best way to prepare for an interview is to study yourself thoroughly.

THEN study the companies and know a little about them.

When they ask you questions about your expierence with such and such...you should recall a similar event that translates into reusable experience.
