    • R S Agrawal,
    General Tips
    It was nice experience, but the process was very lengthy as ppt, written & HR happened in one day & after 1 month technical test & technical interview happened. And Again for results we waited for 1 more day. But still, "The Wait was Worth it!!!" :)

    All panel members were nice and cooperative. Overall it was a great experience as I got a dream company & that too Research & Development job :)



    Prepare well for campus placements from initially only. Concentrate on Aptitude [R S Agrawal] & all ur core subjects [For CS: C, C++, DS, OS, Networking, DBMS(For some companies) & if u know Java..that will be nice]. Go through "Cracktheinterview pdf" for programming questions. it is very helpful.In the interview, Stay Cool. Don't be tense. They want to see your confidence & attitude along with your Technical Skills.
