Hello Friends

I am Shabbar A. Lokhandwala from T.E. (C.S.E.) W.C.E., Sangli. We had an test and interview on 01 04 2007.

Appeared near about 200 students
Aptitude test short listed:  129
Selected:  58

Thanks to God, my friends, my family members praying for me and my luck. I am now IBMer.

1. Written Apti Test (Meritrac): 55 questions to be answered within one Hour & an essay to be written within 15 mins. (essay topic is given at last 5 minutes. ours was "engineers should not accept jobs outside the country."(Write in legible, good, No!!! in best handwriting as it is seen at the time of interview. They may ask u questions on that also as I mentioned @ Swadesh movie I was asked @ that.))

Section 1: English aptitude
  1. I had seen the boy throwing stones ....the old lady.   (use towards/on/to/at)
  2. Synonyms lady was so seluete ,so everyone was praising her .  ans : flexible
  3. Use a an the example was easy.
  4. Use a an the example was easy.
  5. Preposition again. Easy

Then the long passage and on that 5 qs. leave it. Do at last as u will have much amount of time.

Section 2: Quantitative aptitude (go with examples like bouquet of 200 roses 5 red 2 yellow, 5 red &green like that plz as 5 qs on that I was unable to ans them.)

Section 3: Analytical ability
Is given statement answerable by a:1 b:1,2 c:by both and d: by neither. choose correct option among a,b,c,d. Like plz do as u can win ur match here 5 qs on that.

Easy and must solve first like *replaced by +,/ by *,+ by * and – by / so evaluate 28/4*2/1-3+5

Section 4: Computer section
qs from Unix (some commands given what will be the output?) & for technical DBMS (tables given & ans regarding keys), what is Normalization?, sorting complexities worst case which will perform best? Etc.

For quantitative aptitude & analytical ability I will suggest to solve RS AGGARWAL (both) specially Venn dia, mathematical operations, puzzle test, data sufficiency, binary conversion, direction test (south north east do sense : In south turn towards right is towards east do it cool ly.), time distance speed, profit loss, percentage problems.

Age problem like veena younger than 3 years seema who is 4 ys lder than reshma...finally who is older amongst all like 3 qs?

Sorry guys I cant provide u the details of written paper as I was then busy in solving them. But truly speaking it was easiest test I had given ever. Ya Believe me I am also avg case student like u all as my overall % up to 5th sem are 65.36. Ya now u can believe me.

Initially on the ans sheet of essay they have mentioned that they are going to conduct GD of short listed candidates but at last they haven't , But remember guys they have just started the GD tradition in on campus interview processes.

2) Technical Interview cum Personal Interview
I would like to express my interview experience as I think it may be useful to them who have the same dream to be an IBM'er just I had.

I:may I come in sir?
He:no (amazed !!!!) then come in yaar.(so friendly)
He:have a seat plz. tell me @ u and then @ project.
(answered well the river.
Plz in project explanation draw some figures tables for the sake of his understanding he is just checking ur communication skills. (If u r convent student plz drop this instruction) (I am now going to provide u best of all idea to improve the English. first buy CHAOS dictionary of Marathi to English I m not selling or advertising anything (for the sake of my security) just mentioning the thing which I had done so now take the Marathi news paper or any book u like most and daily u have to translate the 10 lines of Marathi to English. Don't think about the tenses. Just go on improving ur vocabulary. My experience tells that within 5 days u will have confidence in doing all things. Hoping that u will do it sincerely.) )

Then a complicated pgm given to solve i tried it, don't give up so early at least try something who knows ur luck supports u at that time and u will be able to solve it.
Asked @ family.
Why should IBM hire u?
Ans: Because of my abilities like creativeness and innovativeness, learnabilty, flexiblity, xplain with eg.
How many files created after successful execution of pgm?

Good!!!!!  Strengths ?
Like river I answered (he got impressed)  
Ibm: why we use main? Why not multiple mains? If main is not declared what will happen?
Me: compiler will raise an error message.
Ibm: what kind of error message?
Me: I don't know exactly but I think it will say main function not defined/found.

Then he open up with real weapons and given me 10 problems list to solve within time limit of 5 minutes. Was easy but tricky I solved luckily just to give o/p of pgm (test ur c skills helped here).
IBM: Favorite sub?
I: All. (Impressed but plz give such ans if u r perfect. I was, as I have prepared IBM as my dream company.)

He asked me no. of qs on networking, O.S. DBMS (novice level), C, C++, JAVA, VC++ all things explained by me so impressed. Uptil now spent 25 min Then turned towards personal interview asked all general qs @ relocation, preferred place,etc.
Then I asked his good name.   He: Mr. Pravin.
He wished me to meet again. Given clue of selection.

So plz be prepare for the test and interview and to be a part of worlds no-2 brand and s/w no 1 branded company.

Bye!!!!! All the best !!!!
