It really depends on the company. Most CS-Oriented companies will probably ask you questions about code, data structures, and algorithms. For these, I would recommend looking into a book called Programming Interviews Exposed. If you look hard enough, you can find a PDF online.
Other companies might ask behavioral questions. For these it would be best to recall a few teamwork or project situations you've been in and what happened. The companies that ask these questions are usually looking for answers in the STAR format (Situation/Task, Action, Result). Some examples would be "Have you ever worked with a difficult team member? How did you handle it?" or "Tell us about a time when you faced adversity in a project. How did you overcome it?"
You can definitely find tons of example interview questions by Googling around. If you interview isn't for a while, you can also go to the CCO and do a mock interview. I've never done one of those, but I'm sure they're helpful.
