Last I checked, most embedded interviews (presumably barring Google etc.) can still be passed if you work through most of K&R (which is quite easy and accessible), know a bit about OS's, and memorize some trivia about locks. Worth reading about some of the deep C nuances as well if your interviewer frequents ##C on freenode.

Linked lists, bitcounting problems (which is covered in the first few chapters of K&R), etc. are all still popular.

The biggest issue you might have is the difference in salary and available positions you're going to see going from FANG Backend Dev at 5 bazillion a year or whatever it is now to 80-120K.
