Infosys Placement Details....

Nithin A: 7th Semester ISE, PESIT was placed in Infosys on 4th January 2010... He wrote about the placement procedure...
Infosys shortlisted 426 students out of 600 odd students in PESIT... Out of the 426, 346 students were offered the job.
The first round consisted of 30 questions from Logical Reasoning and 40 from Verbal.
Logical Reasoning:
5 questions were like this:
5 weights a,b,c,d,e are given and some relation between them is given. Based on that 5 questions were asked like which is d least weight, which is d heaviest. Basically u have to get the order of the weights n u can solve first 5 easily.
Next 5 were diagram based. 4 figures will b given in some order, u have to guess d next figure. Its damn easy.
Next 5 questions are from data sufficiency, like whether u can answer d statement using a) alone or b) alone or using both a) and b).
Next 5 was data interpretation. A table was given and u had to solve 5 questions on that. Its also easy.
Next 5 was logical puzzle not tough at all.
Next 5 was logical deduction.

BOOKS TO REFER: Verbal and nonverbal REASONING BY RS AGARWAL, for Infosys concentrate more on the chapters Data Sufficency, deductions, figures etc.
English 40 questions:
There were 2 passages containing 5 questions each.
8 fill in d blanks.
10 questions on correct the sentences.
10 questions on conclusions on the paragraphs.
Questions on grammatical correction. It was easy overall.
I did not refer any books. For English no need to learn anything.
GENERALLY FOR QUANTITATIVE APTITUDE,  APTITUDE BOOK BY RS AGARWAL IS THE BEST AND MOST OF THE COMPANIES REFER THAT BOOK ONLY. SO BUY BOTH REASONING AND QUANTITATIVE BOOKS AND START PREPARING.
For interview it was basically HR... Everyone was asked about thier projects.. They basically checked the communication skills.. Just be confident and its a peice of cake to crack the interview..


ALL THE BEST!!!!
