Ericsson Interview Experience - JIIT 27 Jan 2017
First Round was the aptitude test. It had 3 parts i.e. quantitative, logical reasoning & verbal. It had 45 questions for 45 minutes. For quant practice a lot from R.S. Agarwal & IndiaBix, it's good enough. If you've already completed the book then go for mock tests at testpot.com, it will really help to practice completing test in the time frame. This test had question from quant questions from trains, time & distance, heights, time & work, profit & loss, %, calendar, numbers, HCF & LCM, Ratio proportion & boats streams. Along with the main topics, some question were rather miscellaneous i.e. I don't know which topic they belonged as I had never tried them earlier but they were okay-ish, not so difficult. Logical had question had general questions from series, classification, people sitting in circles, puzzles, etc. Verbal Ability was easy enough if you remember the basic grammar techniques it would be a cake walk, even if you have watched the English TV series carefully you would do good. There were antonyms synonyms and believe me there's no use practising them, I tried memorising as many words as I can in the past 3 months and still every time in any placement test the words are still new.
Result came in 4 hrs, I sailed through. We were called for the next round in 10 minutes after the declaration of results.
