HI DEAR... I am Ranjeev Poddar,passed out this year from G.H Raisoni College of Engg.,Nagpur......L&T Infotech had come for Campus placement for the 2007 batch.506 ppl appeared for the Aptitude test...out of which only 96 cleared it.They conducted a Group Discussion from which they took 57...Interview was on the next day(1st Sept)...Finally selected 36.As it is said in the following given papers of L&T..There were 3 sets of question papers:White,Pink Yellow.Mine was White.90 mins,90 questions
.Questions for the Aptitude tests
generally is set from R.S Agarwal.If the company is coming in a very short notice,then please do not try to do all the sums from the book..Do only the sums that are given at the starting of every chapters.topics incl:- (figures are not exact)
Average:question asked:1.The average age of a family 5yrs ago was 40.A baby is born in the family,and the average becomes 57.Wats the age of the baby? 2.The average of first 8 no. is 56 the avg of last four no. is 42.find the average of the remaining 2? Problems on ages1. sum similar to that given in R.S Agarwal: pg 182..sum no.4 Problems on Profit and Loss: 3 sums were on that.I dont remember the sums.It was on horses.A man buys two horses for Rs 140each.One he sells at a loss of 25% .At wat price must he sell the other so that he gains 25% overall? I am sorry other 2 i dont remember. Percentage:A simple sum...You can do it without the prep. Ratio Proportion:This was also simple...but i dont remeber it exactly.If u do R.S Agarwal well..this wont be a problem. Problems on train Very simple...just had to calculate the length of the train.problem was like:A train passing a railway platform at 100km/hr..lenghth of the platform is given...find the length of the train?This is given aplenty in R.S Agarwal. Time and Distance:Similar prob given in pg 386,R.S Agarwal:sum no.12.Police and thief problem. A.P:3 sums on it....1. a series like this....11,21,31,41.....201,Find the sum of this series.2.Three nos are there,whose product is 126.Sum 50.find the three nos.(hint: dont solve the problem,see the options.it saves time)3.a series in decreasing order...dont remember it...had to find the sum again. Boats and Streams:Avery simple problem.....formula based.Similar problem in R.S Agarwal:pg 425,sum no.1. Numbers:There were 2-3 problems whose ans can be optained directly from the options..No special prep needed for this. Time and Work:This is the most difficult chapter in any aptitude tests...i had left it..though i did the initial sums given at the begining of the chapter in R.S Agarwal.Question were based on these sums only. Probability:Problem similar to pg no. 622,R.S Agarwal....sum no.5 Pie Chart:A set of 4-5 questions were asked on a single pie chart...simple but with a bit lengthy calculation.Do this last.Mine was like...Mr.Agarwal has an income of 70000/- savings 30000...a pie chart given depicting diff. sectors of expenditure....and then there were questions. Sets:Very very simple....Draw a set and then do....simple subtraction thats all....50 learn mathematics 60 learn english...calculate how many learn both... Simple Interest:Very simple....Do R.S Agarwal. Total questions on Quants was 30...The main idea to crack this is to do the easy ones first.If there are 5-6 sums in the begining which cannot be solved then do the remaining.Do not waste time.Remember there is sectional Cutt-offs. LOGICAL REASONING:
This section was full of syllogism...Pepare well.I did not study from any book,but as it is mentioned in the papers it would be helpful if you do the prep from R.S Agarwal,s Verbal & Non Verbal Resoning.People taking tutions for CAT..can prepare this from their respective study materials. IMPORTANT:Please do this section at the last.Devote 40 mins for this section.And most importantly:before starting of the section check whether the easy questions are at last or at the begining....if the easy questions are at the last start solving from the last..otherwise vice-versa. Very easy...anyone can crack.Have confidence...there were words jumbled up...u needed to sort the letters to find a new words.Sets from which u have to find out certain parameters...doctors, artisans,writers.(NO SPECIAL PREP IS NEEDED...BUT YES SOME TIME IS NEEDED FOR LOGICALLY SOLVING IT..PRESENCE PF MIND IS THE MUST). ENGLISH:
THE MOST EASY SECTION...THE LAST QUESTION CONTAINED A COMPREHENSION ON OCEANS AND WAVES.QUESTIONS, ANSWERS WERE DIRECTLY MENTIONED IN THE PASSAGE.SORTING SENTENCES SUCH THAT A COHERENT SENTENCES ARE FORMED.VERY SIMPLE.correct the gramatical errors...which part of the sentence has gramatical errors..etc.etc......PLEASE DON,T WASTE TIME PREPARING THIS SECTION IF YOU ARE THOROUGH WITH ENGLISH.TRY AND COMPLETE THIS SECTION IN 20 MINS.
