    Out of 30 people, 5(including me) cleared the written test.
    The test pattern was similar to that of previous papers(GRE/GMAT pattern).

    ************************************************************ ***********
    Part 1: (Verbal/English, 25 Q - 15 min)

    This was cool.
    All Antonyms, Analogies got repeated from previous papers.

    Antonyms:
    1)equanimity
    2)sequester
    3)apathetic
    4)dislodge
    5)sedate

    Analogies:
    1)celeberate:marriage::
    a. window:bedroom b. lument:barevemant
    c. pot:pan d. face:penalty
    2)neglegent:requirement::
    remises:duty cognet:argument
    easy:hard careful:position
    3)Germ:disease::
    man:women doctor:medicine
    war:destrustion shopkeeper:goods
    4)bouquet:flower::
    skin:body chain:link
    product:factory page:book
    5)letter:word::
    club:people page:book
    product:factory picture:paper

    Bottom Line:

    Time is sufficient.
    No special preparation needed (provided u r good enough)
    Just gaze thru previous papers' antonyms & analogies
    Sentence completion & fill ups are easy.
    Instead of mugging up antonyms, I personally recommend u to read Synonyms, so that u can easily locate their opposites. (U can refer TCS papers also if needed)

    ************************************************************ ************
    Part 2: (Quantitative Aptitude, 45 Q - 30 min)

    This was tough.

    Repeated Q's:

    One monkey climbs a poll at the rate of 6mts/min and fell down 3mts in the alternately. Length of the poll is 60 mts , how much time it will take to reach the top?
    a. 31 b.33 c.37 d.40 (ans: 37)

    sqrt(12 + sqrt(12) + ((sqrt(12) +......................infinity) = ? (ans: 4)

    6 locks & 6 keys (permutation) problem

    Other Q's:

    consider a square ABCD, in which E is the mid-point of BC & F is that of CD. Now find the ratio of area of triangle AEF to the area of square ABCD. (ans: 3/Cool

    Do not remember rest of the them.

    Bottom Line:
    This section makes the difference.
    Special preparation is mandatory.
    Try to solve problems of every type from R.S. Agarwal
    Leave complex Q's & proceed forward.
