Most job interview questions are very basic and aren't very complicated most of the time so answers shouldn't be too hard either. However, you still should formulate and process your answers carefully because you don't want to look like an idiot to a potential employer either. When asked about education start with high school and note some major things you might have done. Did you play for a sports team, get involved with any clubs, volunteer. Then move onto college if applicable and note your accomplishments there, and if at all possible note things you did in college that could possibly relate to the job you're trying to get.
