its only abt the speed of solving. most of the question can be answered by common man but takes times so try to do as much as home work u can by solving the questions. while attending an aptitude exam if u are not able to identify the answers from the choices then we can go for substitution that is substitute the answers in to the question the n you will get the answer in a quick time.they will not bother about how you will get the answer they just check whether the answer is correct or not.
it is best to follow agrwal's aptitude question book or u can get the question from internet.
gud luck

Hi,

For preparing MTECH & MBA, solve as many question papers possible to clear
it.

For Placements check out the previous company papers
from Freshersworld.com where you will get it and then prepare according
to the syllabus.

If you want to prepare in general refer Arun Sharma's books for quant and verbal, also RS agarwal is also a good book.

All the best.

Dear friend,
The best books you can refer for preparing for aptitude test is R S AGRWAL'S verbal and non verbal reasoning books or quantitative aptitude text book
Then you can also try out the puzzles in SHAKUNTHALADEVI's books
You have to develop good communication skill and good language skill
Try to solve the aptitude test papers of different companies
Try as many as possible and daily work out something about aptitude
that will help you alot
Good luck

Hello friend,
your aggregate should be a minimum of 65% for good companies but if its 70++ you will be eligible for most of the well renowned companies. Some times they also ask your SSLC and PUC aggregate. To clear aptitude test you have to improve your skills, so i suggest you to refer the following books:
QUANTITATIVE APTITUDE BY R.S.AGGARWAL
A MODERN APPROACH TO VERBAL AND NONVERBAL REASONING BY R.S.AGGARWAL
TEST YOUR C SKILLS BY YASHAVANT KANETKAR
WORD POWER MADE EASY BY NORMAN LEWIS
MORE PUZZLES BY SHAKUNTALA DEVI.

All the best for your future

You have to have a very good Communication skill as well as interpersonal skills.
Practice Aptitude questions. Have a practice of speaking english without any breaks. And on the Technical Side, have a deep knowledge of your Projects of Third Year & Final year.Apart from this , you are asked the fields you are interested in and then maybe questions from that can be asked.

for placement papers and experience of other people you can visit this link:

In recent days, aptitude test became a part of each and every competitive exam.

So candidates who are efficient in aptitude are getting through the competitive exams very easily.

To be good in aptitude, what is required is enough practice.

The more practice you have, the less time it will take to solve the aptitude questions.

In addition, enough practice gives you accuracy in getting the answers.

For aptitude, you can use R.S.Agarwal book which is a very good one for aptitude

Aptitude test are the first steps in companies placement procedure.
Best book for preparing aptitude is Quantitative and Aptitude by R.S.Agarwal.
If you see the previous year papers of companies questions are identical from R.S.Agarwal.
