Aptitude was a bit tough. But i continued with the ones which i could solve easily. The time was biggest constraint into this. Some puzzles were tough and some were easy. RS Agg. was more than enough. Que were from time & work, SI, streams. We were provided with rough sheets to do the calc. On the whole it was not tough.

Logical was the one which i found difficult. Some que were with figures, and numbers were inserted into it and we were asked to find the missing. Some series related to time were given. These were really tough. This section was tough.

English was the most easiest to solve. Que related to fill the blank with appropriate word and tense, prepositions, 3-4 synonyms. This section could be done with any avg student.
I took 40 min to do the first 2 sections and the remaining 20 min to do the 3 english sections. However if u get stressed easily then u must begin with english sections, as these are easy and less time consuming followed by apti and then logical. But i will advise u to begin with apti. Concentrate well into the test and dont look here & there. And keep a watch on the time. There was no -ve marking, so do mark all the answers.
After 1/2 hr our result was out and I was one of those who cleared written.

The aptitude consisted of 5 sections:
1.Non verbal.
3.English grammer(Fill in the blanks).
4.Some englist test(multiple choice, some meanings, acronyms, opposites etc).
5.English comprehension just match up appropriate word in passage based on the question).

Section 1: 20 Q.Quantitive (some of them was realy hard ) [should take 25 min]
Section 2: 20 Q.Puzzels, Non verval, verval (easy) [ can take 15 min]
Section 3: 10 Q. Fill in the blanks (very easy) [ can take 3-5 min]
Section 4: 10 Q. Preposition, …. (very easy) [can take 3-5 min]
Section 5: 10Q. there was a paragraph.. not soo long, 1st check the question then read the para… [10 min iz enough 4 that] Then technical round..

In technical round I was asked form RDBMS,Normalisation,Oracle,OS,Creation of dobly link list and pointer.I was asked how many bytes a pointer variable takes?The personel asked me to draw a table and break it upto 3NF.I answered all the questions quite confidently and I was selected for HR.
The logic section consisted of questns like time series (12.30, 3.01,5.45, ---), no. series, alphabets and nos combined series etc. The most common & time consuming questions were like: A,B,C,D,E,F stay in a bldg. A lives above D, F lives bet B & E etc. then find who lives bet A & F.
Another eg: Train starts wid x no of passenger, 1/3rd get down at first station and 120 get in, 3/4th get down at 2nd statn & 78 get in, the no of passengers in the train at last station is 240. Find the initial no of passengers dat the train started wid.
Maths section consisted of sum very easy qustns (like: wen a no is divided by 4 it is reduced by 21, find the no) and sum xtremely tough ones. I just went on solving the questions dat i found easy and den tackled the tough ones 2wards the end.
My advice: Dont rely on only R.S. Agrawal as many of us tend to do. Since most of the companies know dat students refer dis book dey r sure to put sum diffrent kinda questns. B ready for that. Dont practice 2 much of English, u will neway find it easy. And most imp. dont think ur paper wud b of the same pattern as mine, it may b, it may not b, coz mine was quite different frm most of the cmpany papers dat i saw on Freshersworld. Another thing, der will b 5 diffrnt papers, so all wont get the same paper. Keep this in mind if u plan to copy! I didnt copy and it is better not to do so coz it leads 2 time wastage and u might mark sum wrong answrs.
Sum of us like me had our technical first while others had HR. I was asked 4-5 tech qustn frm which i knew only 3, and i confidently said no to the other 2 questn, but the ones dat i knew i answred clearly & correctly. I was also asked to describe the college proj i had mentioned in my resume. So b thorough wid ur proj and dont put it in ur resume if u copied it frm sumwhere and have no idea wat it does.
No programs were asked. The quetn i was asked were: 1) SDLC cycle - i told only full form of sdlc and said i dont know about the cycle. 2)C++ features over C - answrd correctly 3) 3rd normal form - i said no, nvr heard of it 4) describe 2 Software development models - answrd correctly.
HR was a cakewalk. I was asked TEll me about urself. My strengths, weaknesses, and any 2 things i liked about MBT. Some of my frnds who had their HR first were asked a bit diffrnt questns like: A stick was shown and my frnd was asked to write 15 diffrnt uses for it.
My advice for Technical & HR: B confident and say no if u dont know the ans 2 sum questn, dont try 2 bluff ur way thru it, b honest

Q4:) Write a c prog that deletes itself.
Q5:) Declare a const.char variable.
Q6:)What does dig.electronics deals with?
Q7:)Draw a SR flip flop using nand gates .explain operation
1. Aptitude was easy but you need to be quite sure with short cut formulaes...profit n loss(short cuts in rs agg)
percentage,mensuration,algebra,simple trigonometry, sum of series n nth term type.., time n speed, age problem,

2. Series completion was asked in many questions( not as easy as R.S.aGGARWAL)
Series were like time see this one...
11:32am , 04:31pm, 11:52 am........
sum of times in first one 7, in second- 8, in third -9..

other seies were like a 3x3 matrix ,,find the last alphabet,,, venn diagrams,, child , male , engineers, blood relations..

20 ques,, i took most of the time in this section b'coz of series... series were mostly on time like things,,there were easy ones squares..

3. I completed 10 questions here in 5 minutes..
correct form of tenses..
correct use of prepositions
at: used with small towns, villages
in: big cities, provinces, countries..

we often make mistakes with tenses n prepositions b'coz we hav got out of schools where time was given on grammar things...i would say that even a good school time grammar book can suffice for this section..

4. word meanings--synonyms,,antonyms etc..
as i was preparing for tcs exam, i was going through barrons..that was easy...sentence correction questions also..

5.I thought that there wud be comprehension, we were told outside by previous slot students that " 10 questions based on paragraph"
so thought to deal with at last.
but i got only 7 mins with this section
thank God that comprehension was easy
in this 10 questions like fill ups were given which really helped me to go thru this only in 5 mins....

There WAS Sectional cut off this way
1.combined sectional cut off for section 1n 2..(maths n reasoning section )
2.combined sectional cut r three english sections...
i managed to attempt atleast 80 pc ques in each section,,,, n i attempted 100pc ques in 2 sections(3 n 1)
So,,,with God's blessings,,,I cleared this one line test...results within 1/2 an hour ..
