### TCS PAPER - 07 OCT 2006 - HYDERABAD

Hi Friends !

I'm Nagarjuna Reddy. I've completed my MCA. I've taken my TCS Test on 07th October 2006 at Kohinoor Park, Hyderabad. It's a large recruitment drive. I'm eagerly waiting for results now and confident of making it into TCS in my first attempt for job itself.

I got SET Y. Almost all the quantitative questions of this set are same as of previous papers. Only values got changed. Any how here I'm giving you all of those questions which I got in my paper.

**Test Pattern:**

As usual, totally three sections

1. Verbal (32 marks --> Synonyms-10, Antonyms-10, Sentence Completion-6, Comprehension passage-6)

2. Quantitative and logical reasoning (38 marks)

3. Critical Reasoning (12 marks) (3 problems each having 4 questions)

**Section-3: Critical Reasoning**

**Questions 1 to 4:**Small University and Large University problem of GRE Barron's 13th edition. This can be found in the model papers.

Three persons J, K, L belongs to Small University with some subjects like English, Mathematics and Electronics assigned to them. M, N, O and P belongs to small university and M deals Maths, N deals Psychology. O and P have been assigned Latin. Then four questions based on this data. Its so easy. (Not same data, but names of persons are same and pattern is also same).

Even no need to do any arrangements with the given data to solve problems based on this. We need to just write down the given data in a conventional form. That's all. We can answer the questions very easily.

**Questions 5 to 8:**A group of 5 people A, B, C, D, E are there.

**Questions 9 to 12:**Sorry. Third passage I didn't remember it. Even I didn't get time to see it. But it seems to be some what difficult. I didn't have time to answer this question, so I left it.

Also I want to share a few more details with all of you regarding the TCS test. I thought of it to be online test. But because it was a large recruitment drive, they are not capable of conducting online test for that many numbers of aspirants. It was manual test.

And coming to the test, for verbal section, GRE Barron's of any edition is enough. And for Critical Reasoning, Barron's 12th or 13th is enough. Then finally, for Quantitative section, the same problems will be given with only changes to the data. These problems can be solved by even a 7th class student also. But the thing here is the

**Time Factor.**How fast we are able to do them is the thing here. The same problems can be given every time. So don't neglect to solve each and every problem of previous papers, if you want to crack TCS test. After that, try to improve the speed in solving the problems. If you do so, I'm sure that you'll be half way into TCS, one of the top IT firm in the world.

I wish you all the best. Thank you.
