Do you have any tips to help prepare for an upcoming surgical assistant interview?

Are there common interview questions that come up again and again?

Some recent questions I had: These were some tough questions!!!
"If you are the first assistant on an abdominal surgery and the patient codes, what should you do?"
"What would your response be if the surgeon said he didn't like the way you had just sutured a particular layer?"
" What would you do if the surgeon was angry with the surgical technician on the procedure you are first assistanting for? Would you defend the ST?"
"Do you feel it acceptable to perform any function that the surgeon asks of you, even if it is clearly something only a physician should do?"
