Being prepared is essential for any interview you might have. These questions are really useful, because if you know that you've managed to prepare the answers to these, you will be prepared for these and similar questions during your actual interview. The worst thing is if you're at an interview and you just don't know what to say, so taking the time to prepare yourself is very helpful.
