Company: Aricent Group

The Tech interview-
Here they mostly check for your ability to code and your knowledge in networks. You need to be extremely confident and be well versed in C or C++.

Your marks in C or C++ in written test plays a important role. Several of whom i know performed not that well in interview but had very good marks in that section.

Aricent written test mainly concentrates on your C strength.
Regarding the interview they mostly ask these type of questions
They will definitely ask u from ur area of interest.

if u have choosen OS
Then read
-memory management
-process scheduling
-dead lock
-process synchronization

again from Data Structures
*linked list—-very important.. they mostly ask u to insert and delete a node from a singly or doubly linked list…This they ask u even if ur area of interest is not DS
Trees also binary tree…
read all the sorting algorithms…

from Networks
OSI layer
role of each layer
protocols in each layer
*Router and a switch-Router works on network and switch on data link layer
Gateway…which layer does it work on..mostly all seven layers
gateway and firewall

Basics of Networks is a must with out which its very difficult..
Then next is C programmin
They mostly ask u to code the linked list..
other things tat they often ask is string manipulation programs
like strcat, strlen, strcmp….
u have to write code to perform tat…
they also asked the different types of variables in C–external,static,local,global…
Thats all..

Well for Aricent there is no standard tat they choose a particular question always. mostly in Chennai these are the possible questions….They are not exhaustive..Usually some interviewers ask questions from all the subjects thats a rare chance..

Remember with out basic Networks and basic C knowledge its really difficult to clear Aricent….
