INFOSYS-Placement Paper- Jan 2006
I passed with an above average aggregate. I had my first interview in a relative s company in Chennai-post of software trainee-programmer in C and C++. But it was under recommendation that I was called to attend the test. So did not accept their offer. I applied for Infy, CTS and TCS and many more MNCs. I attended caritor off campus and lost in final round.
On 27th Dec., I got the long awaited Infy call letter for test on jan 8th which I attended yesterday. I prepared very sincerely for a 9-10 days. Finishing Shak.Devi book, George book and Ravi Narula, I went through loads of puzzles from brain vista and old papers. I was through with 2004,2004 and 2005 papers.
45/1254 were short listed. Due to stiff competition, I lost in the test. I did a 8 correct.
I am not giving the answer, try yourself that's the best way to solve puzzles.
