Hi Guys...I am Rupak Singh from Mumbai. I had my Infosys test on 4th February 2007 at Sydenham College in Mumbai The test was of two sections as had been described by othr users too.

The logical section was a bit lengthy but very easy. I was prepared for the question on cubes but unfortunately it wasnt in the paper.

The most time consuming question was based on graph reading....It showed the no. of gastroenteritis , cholera, diarohhea, and tuberculosis patients for three years...94-96. It involved calculations tht was very much time consuming so I advise to u solve this question last if it comes in ur paper.

The English section was very easy. Questions were:
2 passages...the lengthy one on Mona Lisa and Leonardo Da Vinci...just read the questions before u start reading the passage and thn mark down the anwsers as u come across thm while reading the passage...saves a lot of time this way

The other shorter passage was on the allotment of agricultural lands for SEZz in West Bengal...very easy 1...Other questions were like: Select the incorrect statement, Replace the phrase with a more suitable 1, just 1 vocabulary question.

The placement papers posted on this site helped me a lot.
All you need to crack the test is the book ,Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning, by R.S. Agarwal. and practice.

Interview was on the next day,i.e., 5th February 2007, at Raheja Chambers, Nariman Point, Mumbai.
It was an HR interview with two guys on the panel
