 Company Profile :
Amdocs celebrates its 25th year in business in 2007. We are a growing, profitable public company (NYSE: DOX), with revenue of $2.48 billion in FY2006 and workforce of more than 16,000 professionals in more than 50 countries.

Our roots in the communication industry have given us vision into what it takes to build stronger, more profitable relationships with customers. When it comes to thriving in the wireline or wireless, broadband cable or satellite, or even financial services industries (the latter having transaction volumes and competitive challenges similar to telcos\'), the difference is the experience. That is, the customer experience a provider creates and the unique experience a technology partner brings to the table.

Amdocs test has 2 sections
Aptitude consist of 4 sections consisted of diagrammatic reasoning n non verbal stuff
Technical test consisted of 4 sections each of pseudocode,c,unix n sql all tests r computer based
     
   In C learn for - Programming (ARRAY,SEARCH,SEQUENCE NUMBERS,PERFECT   NUMBBERS,FIBONOCCI etc),Quries on STRINGS ,MACRO especially    
   In SQL learn for - Commands that are somewhat internal like COMMIT,   etc..but its easy only    
   In UNIX learn for - the common features of UNIX console,executing the   commands ,syntax etc.,    
   The aptitude cum technical test for Amdocs consisted of 7-8 papers. The test is computer based .It takes abt 5-6 hrs. Each paper has a time slot . u can take a   break after each test. It\'s very cool. 

The tests were :
Analytical reasoning:simple maths diagrammatic reasoning: In this, we were given 8 diagrams and had to select the 9th corresponding dg frm the givn choices. U have to be very fast in this test.

Problems to be solved using Venn diagrams.
This test was to check our adaptation to the computer screen.We had to solve abt 30 qs in 15 min( I don\'t remember the timings very well). U have to be very very fast in this also.    
   In this test we were given a booklet of abt 7-8 pgs in which there was the syntax of some hypothetical lang, ( its syntax was somewhat like Visual Basic). This was very easy since the whole syntax was g iven & u can refer to it.    
   We were given almost 90-120mins for this test. If u want u can rd the booklet before the start of the test.(As I said, U can start a paticular   test whenever u want).     
   The qs consisted of programs for which u have to find the o/p or where there is wrong syntax etc.    
   C test: Study pointers very well .Visit www.c4swimmers.esmartguy.com that helps you to test the C/C++ programming strengths.    
   SQL test: It consisted of sql queries mainly inner join, outer join ,group by statements etc.    
   Unix test: kernel, 1-2 qs on TCP/IP, basic commands ( more on commands).
