Company: Amdocs

Amdocs test has 2 sections
1. Aptitude consist of 4 sections n consisted of diagrammatic reasoning n non verbal stuff

2. Technical test consisted of 4 sections each of pseudocode,c,unix n sql all tests r computer based

In C learn for – Programming (ARRAY, SEARCH, SEQUENCE NUMBERS, PERFECT NUMBBERS, FIBONOCCI etc), Quries on STRINGS, MACRO especially

In SQL learn for – Commands that are somewhat internal like COMMIT,
etc..but its easy only

In UNIX learn for – the common features of UNIX console,executing the commands ,syntax etc.,

The aptitude cum technical test for Amdocs consisted of 7-8 papers. The test is computer based. It takes abt 5-6 hrs. Each paper has a time slot. u can take a break after each test. It’s very cool.

The tests were :
1. Analytical reasoning:simple maths

2. diagrammatic reasoning: In this, we were given 8 diagrams and had to select the 9th corresponding dg frm the givn choices. U have to be very fast in this test.

3: problems to be solved using Venn diagrams.

4. This test was to check our adaptation to the computer screen.We had to solve abt 30 qs in 15 min( I don’t remember the timings very well). U have to be very very fast in this also.

5. In this test we were given a booklet of abt 7-8 pgs in which there was the syntax of some hypothetical lang, ( its syntax was somewhat like Visual Basic). This was very easy since the whole syntax was g iven & u can refer to it.

We were given almost 90-120mins for this test. If u want u can rd the booklet before the start of the test.(As I said, U can start a paticular test whenever u want). The qs consisted of programs for which u have to find the o/p or where there is wrong syntax etc.

6. C test: Study pointers very well . That helps you to test the C/C++ programming strengths.
It also consists of qs on args of main function, i.e. argc and argv

7. SQL test: It consisted of sql queries mainly inner join, outer join ,group by statements etc.

8. Unix test: kernel, 1-2 qs on TCP/IP, basic commands ( more on commands).
