TCS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 15 OCT 2006 - HYDERABAD
I got placed in TCS after putting in lottsss of hard work and effort n I would like to share my experience with all of u so that it will b useful 4 u in your preparation. I attended the TCS off-campus in the month of October. I cleared the written test
To clear the written test just go through
1. GRE Barrons (for verbal part)
2. Previous Papers (for aptitude part)
3. GRE Barron’s 12th edition (for reasoning part)
My verbal part consisted of synonymns, antonyms, sentence completion and reading comprehension
Synonyms and Antonyms:
For this part go through Barrons complete wordlist (preferable) or u can go for the wordlist tests which r given at the end of each wordlist.
Note: Read the instructions properly. Dont get confused with synonyms and antonyms. Many people lose marks in this by marking Synonyms for Antonyms and vice-versa. Dats why im asking u to be careful.
Im sorry i don’t know any particular book frm where it is given but im sure dats very easy u can easily get them correct.
This section is time taking. So do it at the end. For me only 1 passage was given 5 times for al the 5 questions don’t get confused and don’t waste ur time reading the same passage every time. I think this is given to test the alertness and sharpness of the candidate. Im not sure whether u wil get only frm this but it realy helps u increase ur speed n doing it fast. As we al know time plays a very important role in clearing the test.
Note: For RC its better if u go through Barrons RC part
Coming to aptitude part, its enough if u go through the previous question papers.
Coming 2 reasoning just go through GRE Barrons 12th edition exclusively the 5 model tests. Dats enough 2 clear this section. My written test results were announced by the end of october n I cleared the test.
Note: This is the stage where most of the candidates get filtered so prepare wel n be cool.
