About the test

The REST API online test assesses candidates' knowledge of creating and using RESTful web services and underlying HTTP specifics.

It's an ideal test for pre-employment screening. A good software engineer should know how to create and use RESTful web services, understand the underlying HTTP protocol, how to make a RESTful API, and security related topics.

This online test requires candidates to answer questions about REST APIs and the underlying HTTP protocol.

Decorative quote

Simple, straight-forward technical testing

TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
