SOME TIPS AND INFO ABOUT INFOSYS PREP...

Hi Chetanaites

Infosys tests arent very difficult. but they require some amount of preparation. all the sums are based on fundamental class 10-12 concepts. very simple speed
distance problems.

u need to follow the foll. books. these 3 books are more than sufficient.


1. PUZZLES TO PUZZLE YOU - By SHAKUNTALA DEVI
q.no. : 2,3,11,12,17,23,27,37,38,45,51,63,66,108,117,124,128,130,145,148

2. MORE PUZZLES  - By SHAKUNTALA DEVI
q.no. : 193,221,244,275

3. GEORGE SUMMERS BOOK
starte with the puzzles to puzzle book importance to each and every question. genrally problems having comaplex figures and 2-page questions will not be
asked. u need to give importance to the questions ive listed above. more or less these questions are reframed or the same concepts are tested. initially when one starts preparing he may find it very difficult. but i guess it wud be only a starting problem. one shudnt get demoralised by this starting problem. u can always refer to the solutions (only after having tried ur best at solving them w/o help). at times the solutions may also sound a lil greek and latin, but u need to spend time on it... u shud know this book in and out.

SPEED PROBLEMS, TRAIN PROBLEMS, SIMPLE PROBABILITY AND
PERMU-COMBI problems are frequent.

once ur thro with PUZZLES TO PUZZLE YOU - By SHAKUNTALA DEVI u can move over to  MORE PUZZLES  - By SHAKUNTALA DEVI. most of the problems here are repeated or rephrased from (PUZZLES TO PUZZLE YOU - By
SHAKUNTALA DEVI).

then u can use the GEORGE SUMMERS BOOK. try working out a 2-3 problems from the GRE BARRONS book - analytical section - the ones with 4 subdivisions. - any person who has taken up his/her  GRE can easily help u loacte such questions in the book. these are very simple questions. they dont involve much time or thinking. and these always feature in ur test. they are generally with 4 subdivisions carrying 8 marks on the whole.

after all this is over u can move over to THE QUESTION papers. start off with the latest available papers and then move on to the old ones. u have plenty of them
put up on the yahoo groups. . once ur thro with 4-5 papers itself, u'd have a clear idea of what problems are asked and what fundas are tested.

but REMEMBER NEVER START OFF WITH THE QUESTION PAPERS,
it will never help.

take the exam witha cool-head. FAALTU KA TENSION will never help u.  u shud be able to time urself. initially scan the paper, if u come acros any stereo type problem just finish it off phat-a-phat. it wud boost ur confidence. then approach  the rest proble.s dont get stuck anywhere. MBA aspirants (ppl who have given CAT and mock cats) wud have an edge in this paper timing stuff..
