I had attende Kanbay test long back.
They had three sets of papers..to ensure people dont copy.
But generally the problems are te same.
There are two sections ...Aptitude and Maths.
Aptitude is easy but time is a major constraint.In maths all I remember is
there were problems on
1)Compound Interest (3 or 4)
2)Two taps are filling a tank and the third one is emptying it .. sort.
3)Problems on trains
Maybe RS AGarwal will help a lot.In aptitude there were problems on
RELATIONS
and on triangle area..Like
One equilateral triangle is divide into say into 3 equilateral
traingle.What is the area proportion of the outermost to the innermost?
It was easy but one FALLS SHORT ON time.Practise a lot and I am sure you'll
get through.
i attended the mbt test for electronic engrs today. someone has
posted a query regardin' the cut off of mbt. the cut off isnt
predecided. they said its decided upon the relative performance of
the candidates. the test was simple except for the rc. very less
time....
a3b2=72, a+b=? ans=5
some eq like x@y=2x+7y, and find the value of....
missing no: 0,2,2,4,6,10,? these were simple.
series were regaring squares of nos....eg squares were either added
or sub.
3 or 4 quests on data sufficiency.
4 quests on venn diagrams.
there were three sets of quest papers. nd the quests in each set
varied.
if any of u guys had given the kanbay test on 17/08th , pls give me
the info about the quests asked.
the GD on aug 2nd was:

these 63 got thru GD..yeah!i cracked the GD.
then comes the interview.
prepare tech guys..they ask a lot of branch ques..n if you have
mentioned any languages in your resume be well prepared.

your CV.
they also gave us puzzles like:
3 switches in the bottom floor, 3 bulbs on top floor..u can go
upstairs only once.find out which switch is for which bulb.
then , out of a group of 10 matchboxes..each with 10 matchsticks of
10 gms. if one weighs 9 gms..how will u find it in minimum no. of
weighings..
be confidant and preapre ques like
why sbhould we take u?
what are ur assets,hobbies,the last book that read , the last film

I am getting a lot of enquiries about the Kanbay
pattern.... I will tell you whatever I know...
I wrote this paper long back  March 12th to be exact.
It was a walkin. There were no Technical questions
till the last interview... so guys.. put your heads
down and work on your speed and accuracy... Most of
the ques were of the type you see in Agarwal(quants).
Analytical is of medium toughnes.. That too tests your
speed and accuracy (not like the stupid stuff infy
throws at you ). There is negative marking(1 mark for
a correct answer and 1 for wrong). So concentrate on
accuracy... They shortlisted around 160 from the more
than 3000 who wrote the test. Then we had gds in
batches of 10. From every batch an average of 2 ppl
were shortlisted. Then we had an interview chaired by
both hr and tech ppl (30  45 mins). Well I got
chucked out at that point (At that time I did not know
even C properly). Thats all I know....
ALL THE BEST Guyzzz!!!!
hi all,
They have two round of aptitude(quants and analytical
test) (30 questions each  15 mins in each round).
Prepare from RS Agarwal. cutoff is 12. There is
negative marking. If you get through, there will be a
GD, followed by an interview. Interview was conducted
by a panel of three, two tech and one hr. They give
more importance to puzzles during inteview + some
sample C programs. Thats all I know. All the best!!!!!
