My first thought was, "Documenting what?" A set of documents for
bio-med hardware would differ greatly from a set of documents for a
groupware application. Then I thought of the word count restriction.

I guess it's not good form to question the usefulness of a project in
a job interview, but if a client (or boss) gave me such an assignment,
I would definitely want to have a discussion about it.

It's a good thing we recently discussed writing tests as part of an
interview, because I had one today. I don't want to tell you what my
concerns were about this test because I don't want to influence you. So
take a look at what I was given and let me know what you would have said.
I'll tell you how I answered in my next post. Here's the test:

"In one paragraph (100 words or less) describe what should be included in a
good documentation package, and explain why it would be good."
