ANSWER

Smoke-testing is conducted after a new software build or release, to check for major defects that would preclude further more comprehensive testing. It involves minimalistic testing of the most critical functions, and is not a substitute for functional or regression testing. Smoke-testing verifies that the system is sufficiently operational and functional in order to proceed with planned test cycles.

Do your homework prior to the business analysis interview!

Having an idea of the type of questions you might be asked during a business analyst interview will not only give you confidence but it will also help you to formulate your thoughts and to be better prepared to answer the interview questions you might get during the interview for a business analyst position.  Of course, just memorizing a list of business analyst interview questions will not make you a great business analyst but it might just help you get that next job.
