    Hi friends  I am Balaji VP from Madurai Kamaraj University. Last week i.e. on 6th October I attended Cognizant technology Solution off-campus @ St.michael
    school, Chennai.
    This is my career map: IBM->INFOSYS->VIRTUSA->TORRY HARRIS->NIIT->DHYANINFO->ASPIRE->HCL->CTS Out of these I went to interview in INFOSYS->TORRY HARRIS->HCL->CTS 
    So after a hard struggle and due to God's grace I got placed in CTS...I am very much thankful to god, my parents, my seniors & my friends & specially freshersworld 

    In cts, there are 3 sections namely 

    1) Verbal 25 questions 20 minutes

    2) Analytical 25 questions 30 minutes

    3) Attention 20 questions 20 minutes


    Analytical reasoning is the easiest section it covers questions like

    *Venn diagram


    *some problems using *->0,1->$ like that?.


    Verbal section contains

    *identify the CORRECT sentence

    *identify the INCORRECT sentence


    *reading comprehension

    It's some what easy?


    Last section contains

    *figure related problems (odd man out, next series)

    *same *,$ problem like LCM(13,34,47) is a)$***$* b)$$$$** etc

    * logically related sentence like

    E.g. If its rains, I won't play cricket

    a)i play cricket

    b)it rains

    c)i play cricket

    d)its not raining

    1) cd 2) ac 3)bc 4)ab

    Some puzzles like a four story building .... And some conditions given questions based on them


    Very easy but time management is important...

    After written they announced the result @ 2:00 pm. immediately those candidates are asked to go to interview panel.

    There are at most 18 panels...so be ready after the written...


    Some of friends got both tech & hr questions but iam very lucky to get only hr questions...


    My interviewer is smart & friendly nature.

    Before giving the pattern pls note these imp points U  have to fill up some questions before the written test.

    4.mention some points that u think need to be a good software engineer
