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 woul 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 mind. FIRST RULE : While job hunting , check your mail on a daily basis, so that you dont get delayed info regarding test or other such details . Even the appointment order comes by email. SECOND RULE : Once you do receive the intimating or hall ticket, check for the following books.Not all chapters need to be followed in each book and i have given the need ones in the daily schedule . (1) Puzzles to Puzzle you - Shakuntala Devi (very Important) (2) More Puzzles - Shakuntala Devi (very Important) (3) Puzzles and Teasers - George Sammers (very very Important) (4) Brain Teasers - Ravi Narula (Optional, but few old sums are here) (5) Quantitative Aptitude - R.S Agarwal ( Important) (6) Verbal Reasoning - R.S Agarwal (very very Important) (7) Previous Papers - Chetana group, 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: 8 marks and 6 marks - George Sammers and Verbal Reasoning (R.S Agarwal) 4 marks and 5 marks and 3 makrs - Shakuntala Devi books and Ravi Narula and Quantitative Aptitude(R.S Agarwal) Some questions from Previous Papers Now lets start of with the schedule : DAY 1 : Start off with Puzzles to Puzzle you - Shakuntala Devi and finish as mush as possible.Decide to 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. DAY 2 : Now take a break off from Shakuntala Devi and then start Verbal Reasoning - R.S Agarwal . In 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. DAY 3 : Now back to More Puzzles - Shakuntala Dei and follow the same procedure you followed for the first book.

Pls do mail me in case you have any doubts. But you must fully be able to undertsand all the question in the First part. DAY 8 : Revise the book-2 of Shakuntala Devi .If you have done excellently well in the test . such that you can easily solve the whole first part . just revise all the sums. Note down tough sums and their solutions and come back to solve thme and revise them . Also mail me if this post has helped you become an Infosion. Just try to solve some. The rest you can make use of the soultions . Dont react. leave ii . How far did he travel.Dont take too much time on Ravi Narula. You are free to ask the panel your performance and expectation of your order. Just check if your method is correct . I would be very happy if his post has helped few fellow Infosions out there . even the solutions will confuse you more. My Interview Panle consisted of one Madame and one Sir. It will be enough if you just c the solutions and understand them . The second half is relatively tougher. So just solve as many as you can. Many papers have similar sums with the names changed. and u can send me offlines to clarify certain doubts . The second part . You can also add me in your messenger. I will be online everyday. give them extra importance. Just three or four hours would be sufficient. . you must Shakuntala Devi book-1(Puzzles to Puzzle you ) on your finger tips. Even one or two is enough . giving preference to the ones that you have listed . Ravi Narula is just optional. but I suggest that you go through all sums and their solution atleast once. I would post them too on this forum . INTERVIEW : Interview is Casual. The Rest . btu dont be worried if your not able to solve much. Note down all sums you could not solve or could solve only using the solutions and list them .I was nto asked any puzzles in my interview. If they are too complex. pls do lemme know if you do get selected. DAY 6 : Take your quantitative Aptitude book by R. Not necessary to wokr out the porblems. if it is tough. Abt my family. The second part . DAY 10 : Check out Ravi Narula. It si okay even if you sit with George Sammers for three days. Abt my College. Be positive. They asked me abt Team Wokr. The sums you have listed. Some sums are asked in some papers.S Agarwal and work out the following chapters fully. and it ill be very confusing. Certain changes i would like to bring out in the current socio-economic development (I said to remove unemployment). The second half . Leave them aside. And start off the second half . your interview process is very simple and a walkthrough if you have good communication skills ( Speak clearly. Try to finish the first half in a day .DAY 4 and DAY 5: Get your George Sammers book and start off solving the puzzles. DAY 9 : Revise George Sammers. frankly). The chapters to be done are : (1) Time and Distance (very important) (2) Time and Work (3) Pipes and Cisterns (4) Trains (5) Boats DAY 7 : Revise Shakuntala Devi book-1 and revise it well. My hobbies. The sums are very tough .soemthing like that). you just have to use the scheme and the solutions and then understand the puzzle thoroughly. Thats a very very big Point in your HR interview. But I do have a list of puzzles that coudl be possibly asked. My interests. atleast maybe few sums are optional.. Interview was very friendly .that is form this book .( There is one questin abt some ANYMAN reaching ANYWHERE. By the end of this day .End of this day you shoudl ahve both Shakuntala devi books at your finger tips. just how you revised the first book.My friend had a stress interview.If his tyre got punctured earlier / later then he would have reached earlier/later. His tyre gets punctured and he reaches late. Be cool. But the names are changed. Many papers have this sum repeated. When you are through the whole book. The first half is kind of easy.
