The Tech interview-
Here they mostly check for your ability to code and your knowledge in networks. You need to be extremely confident and be well versed in C or C++.
Your marks in C or C++ in written test plays a important role. Several of whom i know performed not that well in interview but had very good marks in that section.
Aricent written test mainly concentrates on your C strength.

Basics of Networks is a must with out which its very difficult..
Then next is C programmin
They mostly ask u to code the linked list..
other things tat they often ask is string manipulation programs
