I am a fresher who just finsiehd my final year B.Tech Information Technology. Being fully
prepared for the selection test for Infy on June 19th, and with God's grace I was able to get an
appointment Order form Infosys. I would like to give back to the group the 10 day schedule that I
followed, which may be of use in CRACKING the Infy test. If 10 days arent there for you, then you coudl
leve out the days that i have used for Ravi Narula and the quantitaive Aptitude.
That would bring down the number of days to 7 or 8. You need to manage your time very effeciently.
Spend your itme in studying, and prayers. Prayers do help a lot .
Usually when you register with Infosys, you would get a mail atleast 10 to 12 days before the written test
either by email, or by Post. Let us keep this as 10 days. Before we start off, three rules must be kep in
(1) Puzzles to Puzzle you \u00ad Shakuntala Devi (very Important)
(2) More Puzzles \u00ad Shakuntala Devi (very Important)
(3) Puzzles and Teasers \u00ad George Sammers (very very Important)
(4) Brain Teasers \u00ad Ravi Narula (Optional, but few old sums are here)
(5) Quantitative Aptitude \u00ad R.S Agarwal ( Important)
(6) Verbal Reasoning \u00ad R.S Agarwal (very very Important)
(7) Previous Papers \u00ad ChetanaSinterview.com, KoolKampus.com, Mail me for more (Important)
THIRD RULE : YOU must forget all your previosu failures and start afresh with firm determination and enthusiasm. Once you do this, solving puzzles become easy . I solved 9 out of 10 puzzles. Concentrate on the bigger puzzles first . This may be the way the marks are distributed:
only finish the book and call the day off. Note down the sums which you are not able to solve or need
the answers to solve and keep this list safely. After you go through the whole book, go back to thses
questions and just check out the way they are solced. Sometimes they will not be explained. In this
case you have no choice but to leave them. But some sums
will have some funny explanations.Just rememeber the way or method.
this you just have to do the Puzzle Test Chapter fully , and have a look at the Number, Ranking and
Sequence Test chapter. I contains fully George Sammers type question on easier scale but you woudl
be able to uderstand the basic logic of solving George Sammers type questions. Finish off the whole
book during the second day.There is just one or two methods to solve these sort of questions and the
explanation is very clear .
Once you get the method , you can solve al the puzzles in this, but just in case do go through all the
puzzles. there have been puzzles in previous papers from here.Once ou get the method well, there will
not be any revision necessary in this book . But you will have to concentrate on the method.
kind of easy, btu dont be worried if your not able to solve much. Even one or two is enough . The Rest,
you just have to use the scheme and the solutions and then understand the puzzle thoroughly. Many
papers have similar sums with the names changed. Try to finish the first half in a day . And start off the
second half . The second half is relatively tougher, and it
will be very confusing. Just try to solve some. The second half, even the solutions will confuse you
more. So just solve as many as you can. The rest you can make use of the soultions . If they are too
complex, Leave them aside. Note down all sums you could not solve or could solve only using the
solutions and list them . When you are through the whole book, just revise all the sums, giving
preference to the ones that you have listed . It si okay even if you
sit with George Sammers for three days. But you must fully be able to undertsand all the question in the
First part. The second part, atleast maybe few sums are optional.
Note down tough sums and their solutions and come back to solve thme and revise them. The chapters
to be done are :
(1) Time and Distance (very important)
and understand them . Some sums are asked in some papers.( There is one questin abt some
ANYMAN reaching ANYWHERE. His tyre gets punctured and he reaches late. If his tyre got punctured
earlier / later then he would have reached earlier/later. How far did he travel..soemthing like that).that is
form this book . Many papers have this sum repeated. But the names are changed. Ravi Narula is just
optional, but I suggest that you go
through all sums and their solution atleast once.Dont take too much
time on Ravi Narula. Just three or four hours would be sufficient.
very simple and a walkthrough if you have good communication skills ( Speak clearly, frankly). My
Interview Panle consisted of one Madame and one Sir. They asked me abt Team Wokr, Abt my College,
Abt my family, My hobbies, My interests, Certain changes i would like to bring out in the current socio\u00ad
economic development (I said to remove unemployment).I was nto asked any puzzles in my interview.
But I do have a list of puzzles
that coudl be possibly asked. I would post them too on this forum .
Interview was very friendly. You are free to ask the panel your performance and expectation of your
order. Be positive. Thats a very very big Point in your HR
interview.My friend had a stress interview. Be cool, Dont react.
Pls do mail me in case you have any doubts. Also mail me if this post has helped you become an
Infosion. I would be very happy if this post has helped few fellow Infosions out there. pls do lemme
know if you do get selected. You can also add me in your messenger. I will be online everyday, and u
can send me offlines to clarify certain doubts .
