SECTION 1This section consists of 10
synonyms and 10 antonyms. All the questions are from barron book. You must be thorough with the high
frequency words and you must solve previous years papers.

__Some of the words which i remember am giving for your reference__**1. Infirm**

2. Drudgery

3. Deadbeat

4. Enervate

5. Pragmatistic

6. Masthead

2. Drudgery

3. Deadbeat

4. Enervate

5. Pragmatistic

6. Masthead

For this be careful. Other than this one passage was there it was also from Barron.I am mentioning you the page number 443 16th edition model test number 1. Other than this one paragraph for fill in the blanks was also there which i don't remember from where they collected but it was easy so you can solve that on the spot also.

__SECTION 2:____This section was for simple aptitudes for
this just go through R.S.Agarwal and solve previous years papers some of the
questions which i remember i am giving you:__

__SECTION 3__

**Consists of CRITICAL REASONING**You must be through with the barron gre 12th edithion critical reasoning. See they will tell you at the time of ppt that there wont be any sectional cut off but i observed that those who did well in aptitude section and not in this section were not able to clear this round. SO IF YOU ARE not able to solve this section then simply mugg up all because you don't have any option rather than this...

**Q1) An Airedale, a Boxer, a Collie, and a Doberman win the top four prizes in the kennel show. Their owners are Ms. Huntley, Mr. Grossman and Mr. Foster, Mr. Edwards's not necessarily in that order. their dogs names are Jack, Kelly, Lad, and Max, not necessarily in that order**

d) A and C only

e) B and C only

**4) LAD**

b) Is owned by Mr. EDWARDS

c) Is the Boxer

d) Is the Collie

e) wins third prize

2 more easy questions were also there that you can get at the barron book

All the questions from the critical reasoning book were available there but as the test was online So each one was getting different questions you must be through with this section......

**TECHNICAL INTERVIEW**

My technical interview was very good from the first question itself i got my
confidence they praised me for my first answer My questions were

1) what is class, object?

2) what is protected and private?

3) what is procedure oriented?

4) what is polymorphism?

5) after that they gave me 2 programs to write.

http://www.ChetanaS.org

You must be bold and well mannered while attending the interview. when i entered
and i offered my hand for shake hand they gave me warm response they left their
chair and while shaking hands with me they told me "hi rahul i am Vikram
and hi Rahul I am Ganesh" Their behaviour was so friendly. they asked me

1. why you choose bio tech branch?

2. why should i select you?

3. how you are benefitial for us?

4. do you have any questions for us?

You must ask a good question otherwise it will create a very negative impression
of you in front of them. so many persons who didn't ask questions were rejected.

__M.R. ROUND__

This is a combination of h.r and technical type they can ask you anything. The questions that they asked are following

**1. introduce yourself?**

**2. why bio tech branch?**

**3. what is the difference between c and
c++?
4. do you have any question for us?**

*That's it i got placement in TCS*
