    I am a Computer Science & Engg student from Bhilai Institute of Technology, Durg (Chatisgarh). TCS came to our college from 27th to 29th December, 2010. Around 450 students attended the recruitment process.
    Round 1 (Online Test)
    Online test was purely based on the 70 patterns of questions available on But remember numerical data for every question was changed. So don't just mug up the answers, go for the concepts. If you don't find the solutions, just google it out. I attempted 31 questions, fearing upper cut-off. But remember guys there is no such thing like upper cut-off. So attempt as much you can. 
    The test was conducted in various slots and the result was declared late night. Around 375 were shortlisted.

    Round 2 (Technical Interview)

    Next day we waited since morning for technical interview. I prepared core Java, C and dbms as my area of interest. My turn came around 8'o clock in the night. I enterd the interview room.
