Satyam Interview Experience and Learnings -4

Selection procedure: Half an hour aptitude test comprising of 15 questions, each correct question carries a single mark and a wrong question has a 1/4 negative marks i.e-1/4.
Remember negative marking will be there, don’t try to guess the answers. First choose the questions which are easy and not lengthy. Believe   me many question were very easy but only thing is they will try to confuse you .

Written test is only APTITUDE .Does not contain any technical questions.Most of the questions were from  “QUATITATIVE APTITUDE BY R.S AGGARWAL” and “SHAKUNTALA DEVI’S PUZZLE BOOKS”. No verbal questions i.e no synonyms and antonyms.
