A good knowledge in C, mainly sorting, searching, data structures, and simple programs dealing with prime numbers, palindrome numbers and other different types of numbers.
For dealing with technical questions, try to read at least one subject perfectly and overview of another subject is recommended. The interview will definitely ask about the technical papers you have presented. Prepare well and be perfectly acquainted with the paper you have presented. The interviewer will also ask you about your favorite subject. Be ready for any questions from the subject you say as your favorite subject and also be ready to say why it?s your favorite subject. We being EEE students recommend other EEE students to have either Power Systems or Power Electronics as your favorite subject. If you learn both, it will be well and good.
Be Confidant in your trying to answer, even though you do not know the right answer. The main criteria for selection in cognizant is your confidence level. That is what matters the most. At the end of the day it will be your confidence which will win you the job in Cognizant.
All The Best.
