    Hi! Friends!!!! I am VISHAL NIGAM  of  CUCEK (CUSAT) .TCS came to our campus recruitment as the first company in the year 2008.we were informed that our 1st round of campus,i.e the aptitude test will be held at CUSAT on 22nd of February & we were told that the students who will be selected will be having their technical/hr/pi at our campus itself. 

    Now I will be giving u the test pattern of the exam held by TCS:

    1st Round:Aptitude Test Pattern: online.


    1st section :-verbal section (20 minutes)

    2nd section:-quantitative aptitude (40 minutes,38 questions( these may vary for others))

    3rd section:-logical reasoning (30 minutes,12 questions (as usual)


    for the quants ,i would like to suggest u ,pls go thru the previous papers of tcs.they r just repeatin the same ,i mean, they can change the data but the concept behind the question wll be the same. 

    for verbal section,i would say to go thru gre high frequency words list.they can be helpful  to some extent.

    for the LR section I would suggest u ,pls  go thru the  BARRON?s GRE 12th edition,it really helps. here,i m listing out  some of the sections which u must go thru  


    Model test 1 :Section 5 and 6, from page 442-448

    Model test 2 :Section 1 and 6,page 473-476 and  495-498

    Model test 3 :Section 5 and 6,page 540-547

    Model test 4 :Section 5 and 6,page 590-595

    Model test 5 :Section 3,page 628-631 and Section 7,page 644-646

    After the test the results were announced & fortunately out of the list my name was there in the list,then we were asked to fill up a form(the HR form).After that we were told to come to CUSAT campus on 23rd  for the technical/hr  interview at 11.30 am sharp.
