The test is of online type and it consists of two sections, I'll
list them in detail later. Please note down ur serial no., ur batch & time
of test from the
xl chart sent by the placement officer. You'll have to log on to ur screen &
enter some
preliminary details. Then u can proceed to either of the following two
sections first...
though both of them are mandatory. When in a section, you can answer
questions in any order and
recheck the results (unlike GRE). An automatic clock will be running for 30
mts for each section.
When done, u can 'exit the test' and go to the next section. PLEASE DO NOT
CLICK ON LOG OFF
BEFORE YOU FINISH THE ENTIRE TEST!
1. Aptitude (GRE pattern  verbal + maths)
30 Questions in 30 mts  you'll have to be really fast!
Verbal was manageable it seems and for maths, pl. refer RS Aggarwal.
Key areas in maths  PermutationCombination; Trigonometry
Get the questions from ur friends in the previous batches...these tend to
repeat.
2. Technical Section: (C or C++)
30 Questions in 30 mts.
key areas in C > POINTERS, Looping & general inputoutput
sample quesion: for (i=1; i=3; i++) { <body of the loop }  how many times
will the loop
get executed ? Ans: JUST ONCE (i.e. when i = 3)
C++ key areas > OOPS concepts in and out
Constructorsdestructors; dynamic binding; polymorphism; inheritance etc.
Suggestion: If u're strong enuf in pointers, u might consider C; else if
u're confident b't ALL
the OOPS concepts, u'd want C++.
***********************************************************************
I took the test before three weeks,Here are few of the questions i remember.
There are two
sections The aptitude section is very easy
1.aptitude(30 minutes,30 questions)
*verbal
1.analogies
2.word_____word
there would be five options,out of which one word would belong to the same
categorie as
the remaining words.
*logical reasoning(like GRE,but easy)
*nonverbal
1.what would be the next figure in the sequence
*quantitative aptitude
*time and work(easy)
*allegation and mixture

1:2:3.
the resultant concentration of the mixture is 23%.find each's concentration.
(I am not sure about the numbers)
*time and distance in a 100m race 'a' is ahead of 'b' by 10feets.if the
speed of b is
increased by 3m/s she is ahead of 'a' by 10feets in 120m race.find the speed
of 'a'.
*age(easy)
*data interpretation
(questions were asked from the above models for me)
2.c or c++(it's your choice to choose one,30 minutes,30 questions)
it was bit tough
*pointers
*function pointer
*structure
struct emp
{
Int a;
char b;
};
struct mn
{
double c;
struct emp d;
} q;
Q.sizeof(q)
ans:11(check it)
*char a="kamal";
char p*="anand";
a)compilation error
b)runtime error
c)work properly
d)
*char a[]={10,20,20,30};
char *p;
int b;
p=&a;
b=*p++;
printf("%d",b);

The big economic difference between nuclear and fossil fueled power stations
is that the nuclear reactors are more expensive to build and decommission,
but cheaper to run. So disputes over relatively of the two systems revolved

At any given moment are being bombarded by physical and psychological
stimuli computing for one attention. Although our eyes are capable of
handling more than 5 millions of data per sec, our brains are capable of
interpreting only about 500 bits per sec. with similar disparities between
other senses and brain it is easy to see that select visual, auditory or
tactile stimuli that we wish to compute at any specific time.
