I attended TCS interview recently on Dec 11 2009. I want to share my experience with all Friends
First round is written test. This time TCS conducted the written test very toughly mainly in Aptitude.
But in Critical Reasoning 2 from GRE Barron (13) and 1 is given outside which is also very easy.
In Enlish section it is given max from GRE. But in Aptitude this time they have changed the total pattern.
This time they concentrate in data suffiecency which are lenghty and problems are also very lenghty one. but any how I cleared the written test.
