I am Soumya Dutta frm Netaji Subhash Engg Colg, 3rd yr ECE. I am goin to share my experience with all of u.. hope it will help u. APTI was on 14th Feb[V day].. it was normal online test.
VERBAL: I hv studied GRE Baron high freq words but only 3 was common..others were tough.. so guessed. the para was a bit tough too...
QUANTITATIVE: this part was really easy. solve previous papers.. really helped me a lot...enough for quanti...
CR+LR: all the questions frm GRE Baron's 12th edition model test papers.. So prepare the CRs frm there..
I would say that don't bother too much with the vocab part as that is dependent on ur luck.. Keep focused on the quanti and reasoning part... remember one thing scoring good marks in APTI almost makes ur job secure and certain..very much vital point.
INTERVIEW: [16th FEB] All the questions were dynamic for 45 mins. they can ask u anything. I mean anything.. so be prepared for that..be calm cool and confident [not over confident]..they will select u.
