The first 3 modules in the test were all objective with a huge time constraint . For Module 1- knowing few basic algorithms and basic coding knowledge was enough. Coding section (Module 4) was also easy-(1 hours- 2 codes)

It was a really friendly environment. Interviewers were more interactive and was not like a stereo typical interview but was more like a very good conversation

Some people had a technical round interview in this interview's place - it is mostly interviewer specific.They had hard core coding questions on C/Java(depending on which language they chose to write module 4 in the test)
