    TCS PAPER ON 27TH FEBRUARY,2008 AT GURU NANAK INSTITUTE OF TECH.

    HI Guys This is MANSOOR student of Electronics & Communication from Guru Nanak Institute Of Tech?.TCS came to our campus on 27/02/08?.. I know u don?t wanna know who I m?So Let me come straight to the point?..
    The paper was divided into 3 sections?

    1) ENGLISH,
    2) QUANTITUDE,
    3) LOGICAL REASONING -

    Puzzle part?..
    It was an online test so u didn?t have the choice to choose a part in which u r comfortable in, you have to start with English, then Quant and then Puzzle?.

    For ENGLISH see the ANTONYM given in (Barron's Gre (12th edition) Chapter-6 Antonym Exercise) some of the words I can remember are
    1) GAUCHE- lacking social polish,
    2)DISCREETNESS- prudence,
    3)CHURLISH- rude
    There were also couple of passages (where u have to fill the missing sentences) which were a bit tricky so I will advice u guys to solve that first and den come to Synonyms and Antonyms (which are 10 each in total)

    For QUANT some of them were quite easy such as
    1) Interchange ?MEASUREMENTS? the first with 2nd letter, 3rd with 4th and so on., and den get the 12th letter from right
    Ans :) E
    2) There was a table where for certain values of X., there were some values of Y?
    Ans :) y=log(x)
    3) How many zeros are there in 100!
    Ans ;) 24(get LCM of 100 and add the no.?s)
    4) the sides are given which triangle is not possible??..
    (A) (2,3,6)     (B) (3,2,4)     (C) (3,4,5)    (D) (3,3,3)     (E) (5,3,5)
    Some other Q?s were:
    5) Select the odd one out
    a. Oracle b. Linux   c. Ingress d. DB2 
    6) Select the odd one out
    a. SMTP b. WAP c. SAP d. ARP
    7)  Select the odd man out.
    a. Java b. Lisp c. Smalltalk d. Eiffel 

    Some of the other questions were exactly of the same pattern like previous years papers (Data?s are changed of course)?
    Say it finding the no.?s from one base to another as in NUMBER SYSTEM, STANDARD DEVIATION, PROFIT AND LOSS, PERCENTAGE, PROBABILITY, TIME AND WORK, NUMBERS, AVERAGE. AGES, RATIO AND PROPORTION, ALLIGATION OR MIXTURE, SIMPLE INTEREST, COMPOUND INTEREST, PERMUTATION & COMBINATION etc

    For PUZZLE part it was exactly from Barron's Model Test papers (Data?s not changed)..it was basically from model test papers.
    Model test 1- Section 5: 1-4, 5-6, 8-12, 13-16, Section 6:  8-11, 12-18, 19-22
    Model test 2-Section 1: 1-4, 12-18, 19-22, Section 6: 8-12, 13-16, 24-25
    Model test 4- Section 5:  8-11, Section 6: 8-12
    Model test 5- Section 3: 1-4, 8-11, 23-25, Section 7: 1-5, 6-9, 16-20, 21-25

    When I cleared my aptitude I was quite relieved
    Then I went for my interview at around 8.00pm HR and TECHNICAL was taken together?first of all I was made to wait for around 7 min outside the room which was quite nerve wrecking and then it started

    Me:) Good Evening Sir
    Interviewer)  Nodded and asked me to sit
    Interviewer) Tell me about yourself
    Me) Told with poised?
    Interviewer) asked me about my favourite subject
    Me) Digital Electronics
    Interviewer) OK tell me the diff between a digital and analog signal
    Me) explained with diagrams
    Interviewer) What is the discrete value of a digital system
    Me) 0 and 1 Sir
    Interviewer) OK tell me where u do u see yourself in next five years
    Me) Told
    Interviewer) what kinds of transistors are there
    Me) about to say
    but another sir came in and interrupted me and den he asked
    Interviewer) What do you mean by AM and FM
    Me) Explained
    Interviewer) have u seen a radio and how we have to tune it?what exactly happens:
    Me) explained with élan
    Interviewer) Do you know about Mobile Communication
    Me) A bit sir? but not in details as I will study this in the next semester
    Interviewer) Do you know HLR or something
    Me) I didn?t understand as it was from Mobile Communication but I told him about CDMA technique coding, PCM etc
    So he got impressed and asked me
    Interviewer) OK u know your subject lets go into programming language? Which language u know ?
    Me) C
    Interviewer)  OK what is meant by local, global, static variable, what is static global variable (everything abt storage class)
    Me) explained thoroughly
    Interviewer) Do u know pointers
    Me) Yes sir
    Interviewer) Take two pointers string and concatenate them
    Me) I did it with strcat()
    Interviewer) very smart
    Interviewer) Do it without using functions
    Me) I tried.. but couldn?t get it
    Interviewer) then asked me to declare integer and assign an integer pointer and then print the post increment of it and get the output
    Me) done
    Interviewer) do you why have we asked u to fill the languages column
    Me) said because of some preferences and topographical restrains?
    Interviewer) was satisfied and ???.shook hands

    When the result was declared I felt like floating in the sky? it was an out of this world kind of feeling

    My advice will be to all aspirants is that back ur knowledge?ur ability and belief in urself?try to get the first few lines in the interview to be perfect and rest u will sail through?.

    NOTE: For Non CSE students my advice is to know ur core subjects properly and hav only sound knowledge of C, data structures etc.

    Hope to meet in TCS??.Have a nice day

    Regards
    MANSOOR.
