TCS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 06 OCT 2007 - HYDERABAD
This is Shiva prasad from DVR college of Engg and Tech, Sangareddy. TCS was my 10th company to attend. Out of 15,000 who appeared for the test, 2338 got selected for the interview, from which 722 were finally selected.
It consisted of 3 sections: Aptitude, Verbal and analytical reasoning
Aptitude: for aptitude just go through the previous papers, its more then enoguh. It consists of 38 qns. I know 99% of the questions, but i attempt only 80% of the q'ns because there is upper cut off and there is no need of doing R.S agarwal or any other books.
Verbal: This was the toughest section for me. It consists of 32 qns. It has 10 synonyms, 10 antonyms, a Reading comprehension with 6 qns, and a passage with 6 blanks where we have to insert the correct sentences from the choices.
for verbal just go through the previous yrs papers (v v imp), gre high frequency wordlist, antynonms and synonym exercises, for passage go through the gre RC exercise (directly they will give the passage from barrons with out changing the option).
This is the very very important section to clear the written test. Take Barrons 12th edition and go through all of the model test papers(1-5). Omit the passages containing 1 or 2 qns. Study the pasages with 4 or more qns. The passages and qns are cut, copy, and paste from Barrons.
I had gone through the previously 100+ qn papers from all most all sites and found out which passages were asked. They are:
Model test 1: Section5 - qns 1-4 (motorist), qns 13-16 (red and brown)
Section6 - qns 1-4 (conservative, democratic), qns 8-11 (latin, sanskrit), qns 12-18 (joe,larry,ned), qns 19-22 (a causes b)
Model test 2: Section1 - qns 19-22 (wallachia and rumelia) ---i got this qn, but the names were changed as london and paris , and a,b,c etc were changed as french, italian etc.
Section6 - qns 8-12 ( ashland , liverpool), qns 13-16 (spelunker) ---i got this qn, qns 17-22 (pesth) ---i got this one too
Model test 3: Section6 - qns 1-4 (all Gs are Hs)
Model test 4: Section5 - qns 8-11 (horizontal row), qns 19-22 (a,b,c cause d)
Section6 - qns 8-12 (spanish, italian), qns 13-16 (all As, Bs), qns 17-22 (progressive federal party)
Model test 5: Section3 - qns8-11 (museum), qns 19-22 (A is the father)
Section7- qns 1-5 (prahtu, brahtu), qns 21-25 (scurvy
This passages are more than enough to clear critical reasononing, with out GRE barrons 12th edition it is difficult to clear the written test.
First thing don't be afraid bcoz they r so frndly. as I am from CSE and I have said my most favorable subjects r C, java and Oracle. And I was also prepared C++. The question was as follows:

This is also an elimination round. The feed back of technical interview will be send to this MR and MR will ask the questions totally based on feed back of tech.
In tech, as I was not answered some of the questions on pointers. So my MR were asked totally on pointers for 45 min.:(.
If we perform perfectly and answered all questions in Tech interview then MR is a cake walk..
