TCS Placement Paper & Interview

Company: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS)

I am writing this to help all those preparing for TCS – Touchstone aptitude test. The test consists of 35 questions with no verbal ability. Many think there is no verbal but the plan of TCS is to test your verbal ability in the questions of aptitude itself. Because each of the question contains atleast 5 – 6 lines with lot of stories & irrelevant data. The actual question data will be not more than 1 line.
So only if you are good in verbal ability you can understand the question & answer. I attended online aptitude test Chennai.
