The interview questions depend a lot on the role you will be interviewing for.  Are you interviewing as a report writer, a business analsyst, a data modeler, or something else?

Here are some of the things you could focus on:

What is report bursting and how to you do it?
What is Level Span?
What are some things you can do to performance tune reports?
What is a dimentionally modeled report?
What is the difference between a filter created in the framework vs one created in a report?

My advice is prepare for and take the cognos certification exam.  This will prepare you for any interview quesion on the reporting side.
