    Skill Tips
    Books really won't help,just have to make sure your not too rusty at the time of the test and interview.The interview questions are all maths oriented,there's nothing to worry about.Don't have to solve everything just have to leave a good impression with the interviewee.
    General Tips
    Exhausting journey as there were nearly 5 interviews in a span of 10 hours (through the night) with hardly any sleep in between. It'll definitely be a good learning experience irrespective of how things turn out.

    Keep in touch with aptitude. Decent speed in maths is necessary .Familiarization with Simple Interest and Profit Loss problems will come in handy during the interview stage.

              General Tips
              Don’t relax too much and do prepare religiously inspite of whether or not your wingie or close friend is taking placements seriously. Also, do help out your wing mates once you are done with yours. There is no better joy than seeing a close friend landing up a dream job. Most importantly, never lose hope. This comes from a 7.1 who failed to make into the shortlists of every company for internships and still landed a job within the first 3 hours on the first day. Just keep believing you’ll do well and you would.

                Interview Experience
                There was test which was purely data analysis and calculator was allowed. So the procedure that they follow is that first they shortlist 50 people and a small case interview is followed. The case I was asked was to calculate the change in the cost of a grocery store if it has changed its model from cash on delivery with a physical store to an online portal which has cash on delivery option. As I had practiced it already I took some time to give structure and then gave 3-4 reasons for change in cost and then he gave me some numbers based on which I had to calculate the break even time period or amount . But I think he expected a little bit different approach or was searching for a different solution as I wasn't selected for the final interview sessions. I think 22 people were selected for the final interview session out of which 2 people were finally selected in Cap One.

                    General Tips
                    1. I was inclined in clearing CAT from my second year onwards.

                    2. I did a summer project in the second year and simultaneously joined Career Launcher.

                    3. I didn’t prepared much for the placements and was only focussed on CAT preparations during the seventh semester.

                    4. I did not give as much time in resume building as given by mates since I knew that I have nothing to mention about except my CPI.

                    5. CAT preparations helped me strengthen my aptitude and quant skills.

                    6. I was able to clear the tests of various companies just with my CAT knowledge.

                    7. I practised maths for entire month and was pretty confident in English and a week before the main exam, I did one or two mock papers daily.

                      Interview Experience
                      Company 2:Capital One   Was asked a very simple guess-estimate about the earnings of a credit-card company with the launching of a new scheme. Did well ,but the next question about how a change in one of the variables would affect profit, was ill- explained. Realised I had become over-confident about solving the guess-estimate easily and hence messed up the second part. Most importantly, at one point during a casual conversation with the friendly interviewer, I let slip that my first interview was with BCG.I think that was uncalled for and raised the bar of his expectations and might have even seemed slightly boastful. Something any sensible candidate should avoid. I was never very keen on Capital one, and so they weren't keen on me either :) .Good Chemistry, but no job offer!

                            Capital One took a preliminary interview in November to eliminate half of the candidates. It mainly evaluated your numerical abilities and communication skills. I was good at both (apti preparation helped a lot) so got selected. Next were main interviews on Day 1. I couldn’t solve the case well and was not called for the second round. However, their entire process was extremely fair.
