I believe that is the greatest tcs resource one can find in internet. So get benefited from it!!!!!! Just remember to get yr attitude right. Guys remember besides apti and interviews dress code, smartness, eye contact, positive attitude, friendliness, blue form, communication skill, extra curricular activity, general knowledge, presentation, iq, mental ability, decision taking ability are also tested during interviews. This is from a personal experience besides ask the interviewer as many questions as u can. Show the interviewer u r dying 2 get in his organisation.
# Regarding Interviews, they will give you a form to fill up and ask questions from there. They do not even see the CV. So be careful about what you write. I wrote MS-Word, MS-Excel (basic) knowledge in Application Softwares and they grilled me from MS-Excel too (what is a macro, vlookup function etc).
