    Hi Frends,

     
    Im pursuing final yr M.E.(ece dept) in P.S.G college of technology,Coimbatore,Tamilnadu....
    Cognizant (CTS) came for us as on-campus drive on 1-9-2011....previously there was a pre placement talk on 30-08-2011....around 1200 students opted for placement....
    But cts provided direct interview for those who attained 75% and above in all X,XII,U.G.,P.G (if applicable).....
    hence they shortlisted 535 for direct interview and rest to write written exam......
     
    I was one among those who wrote written exam....
    The pattern consists of 2 sections...
     Analytical- 30 ques and Verbal- 25 ques....each 30 mins duration....
    Analytical section was very very easy as that u could complete in 20 mins......The ques would be like below....
     
    1) find the odd figure out...(1 ques)
    2) syllogisms( including 2 statements which are mostly asked)....(2 ques)
    3) Statement inference (true or false like)......(2 ques)
    4) logically follws...(4 ques)
    5) data sufficiency.....(2 ques)
    6) puzzle test...(4 ques)........they would be time consuming ,if u practice those on r.s.agarwal quans and verbal-non verbal u could crack it soon......
    7) coding,decoding....(4 ques)......very very easy its just alphabets getting shifted nothing else....
    8) figure sequence....(4 ques).....within 2 mins u could answer
    9) find the fig that match the given figure....(3 ques)
    10) data interpretation....(4 ques on a pie chart or table)
    In general for all the above practice on r.s.agarwal verbal n non verbal recent edition.....its more than sufficient.......
     
    Verbal section seems to be little tough as u find no time to complete it.....But good practice makes ur way....
     
    1) identify correct n incorrect sentence......(10 ques)
    2) two big passages consisting each 5 ques.....(10 ques)...do it last becoz the ques would be lik whats the conclusion lik that which takes time.....
    3) jumble sentence.....(5 ques).....easiest part in the paper....do it first if u r not strong on sentence correction....
    Refer T.I.M.E materials GRE baron's(if possible but not that necessary),moreover basic knowledge on english grammar(articles,prepos,gerunds,....) would be sufficient....
     
    There were no negative marks.....I was bit confident that i would select....
    Among 700 studs they shorlisted 501....i was one among...
    cut off would be low for on-campus.....probably ( 14 for analytical n 12 for verbal).....but dont stick to it.....
     
    We were called for interview on 3-09-2011.....Now the strength for interview is around 1050...
    There were 50 panels....
