Three general rules for appearing campus interviews of major software companies-
You would unnecessary loose out a chance and would be not eligible to attend recruitment process for period of at least 6 months (period varies according to company in case of INFOSYS its 9 months) so be very cautious.
Best way to do this is solving entire QUANTITATIVE APTITUDE by R.S. AGRAWAL at least 2-3 times
No matter how hard you prepare you should be able to confidently and comfortably present yourself.
Following material would be sufficient as per my experience
Five days intensive preparation schedule (at least 10 hours per day)-
Day 1 and Day 2 - Go through previous years question papers .they will single handedly expose u to around 90% of most likely asked questions. Generally u would be able to solve most of problems/puzzles except 8marks puzzles and some typical 3-4 marks problems/puzzles. jot down all such unsolvable problems/puzzles in a list.
Most important tip prepare high frequency problems/puzzles list.
Make list of all those problems/puzzles which finds there appearance more than once. My list contained some 100+ puzzles/problems. Most of them are easily understood , some need preparation from Summers / Shakuntala devi. One or two are really unsolvable.
Friends this list is THE MOST IMPORTANT document prepare it very attentively and carefully. If u are fortunate enough 8-9 out of 10 problems will be from this list. I was so lucky that I had 9 problems from this high frequency list.
Day 3 - u have got list of difficult, unsolvable problems. Of this list , for solving 8 marks problems u need considerable exposure to George summers book. Spend your full day solving most of the puzzles. DONT GET WORRIED IF U ARE UNABLE TO SOLVE THE PUZZLES . THEY ARE REALLY TOUGH. Just take basic funda into account like matrix formation n filling, cases formation etc.
At the end of the day u should be able to solve some problems from unsolvable list.
Day 4 - solve as many problems/puzzles from Shakuntala devis two puzzles books. Not all the questions are puzzles leave figure problems. Among rest of puzzles most of them are logical hence straightforward easy though u would get some very tricky and challenging to solve .u wont find any special stress while solving those books they are fun to solve.
Day 5 Solving AGRAWALs quantitative aptitude at least 2-3 times is a pre-requisite. In early hours of the 5th day brush up with basic aptitude , which will constitute some 15-16 chapters of the book.
Once u have done with it comes the most important part re-assembling whatever u have learnt in this 4 and half days. Best way to do this is to go back to the 100 question papers and solving them with a rapid speed. As u have done with most puzzles it wont take more time to do it.
Now focus on high frequency list . I am repeating .. a average infy paper will contain at least 5-6 puzzle from this list. The no. may go up if u are lucky enough!
Infy has constant pattern which consists of following-
One important thing many guys will describe English section as cakewalk but it isnt that easy .
HR interview is no too tough, but guys please go prepared with most like HR questions.
One most important thing, answer your questions confidently.
Thats it buddies one thing u would clearly figure out that I have given 99% attention on written exam. Reason is quite obvious once u clear written u have 95% chances of breaking in INFOSYS.
Best of luck to every job aspirant. See u at INFOSYS
