R S aggarawal is gud bt read only relevant topics.
Questions = 55 ; time limit = 60 minutes…along with that an essay to write in the same sheet in another 10 minutes…
No sectional cut off , no negative marking..
questions were easy.. all u need to do is planning which questions to attempt first and which one to attempt at last…and yeah 1 more thing ..you have to be very fast and u can achieve dat only through regular practice..all u have to do is to solve few chapters from R.S.AGGARWAL ( verbal & Non-verbal as well as quantitaive)..i will suggest you some chapters …you jus do those chapters properly and it will be more than sufficient for you…
The Aptitude test paper is divided into 3 sections:
1st section :consist of 20 questions which is completely based on english…
Questions 1 – 10 : These are very easy.. its completely based on prepositions and fill in the blanks with correct articles…if u have a gud command in english then do it in the beginning else do it some time later on after solving some easier questions which will mention later on…
Questions 11 – 20 :
questions 11 – 15 contains one comprehension followed by another comprehension from ques 16 – 20… I will suggest you all to do the comprehensions at last.. and attempt the first comprehension before than the second one…coz according to my experience first comprehensions are always easier than the second one…
TIPS : DO THE COMPREHENSIONS AT LAST AND ALWAYS READ THE QUESTIONS FIRST AND THEN LOOK FOR THE ANSWERS IN THE PASSAGE…NEVER WASTE YOUR TIME IN READING THE WHOLE PASSAGE..
2nd section : consists of 20 questions which is based on quantitative as well as verbal and non-verbal…
It contains questions from data sufficiency, venn diagram, time and work, percentage, time and distance, directions, blood relations, and the most important topic LOGIC (syllogism) which is the first chapter of the second part of R.S.AGGARWAL (verbal & non-verbal)…prepare these chapters very nicely…
3rd section : consists of 15 questions which is v.v.v.easy, only a difficult portion can be of puzzle types..
questions are like :
Q.41- Q.45 Mark the answers according to the following:
A- If all the three options match
B- If FIRST and SECOND options match
C- If FIRST and THIRD options match
D- If none of the three match

Q.46-Q.49 were based on the Puzzle-type question. It said:
Following was the criteria decided by the selection committee of Indian Cricket Board:
1) Player’s age should be 18-28 years
2) He must be the captain of any cricket team for at least 2 years
3) He must be a Ranji Player for at least 2 years
4) He must have taken at least 20 wickets or made 1000 runs in a calendar year in Ranji
If 1st condition is not fulfilled .. referred to chairman
If 2nd condition is not fulfilled .. he must be an all rounder with at least 500 runs and 15 wickets
If 4th condition is not fulfilled .. referred to VP
Questions were like following example:
Rahul was born on Dec.10,1979 and is a captain of Ranji team since Feb 2005. He won man of the tournament last year for taking 24 wickets last year. He is:
a) Selected b) Rejected c) Referred to Chairman d)Data Insufficient
(These questions are also easy if you draw a table with names of the aspirant in rows and criteria in the columns, and then checking whether he/she fulfils it or not)
Q.50- Q.55 were also a bit easy and were of two types:
Example of type 1:
If * means +, + means -, – means / and / means *, then what is the value of-
Example of type 2:
If * means /, / means -, – means + and + means *, then which of the following is true:
a) 7+43*2/13-7+8 = 22.6 b) 4-9*7/4*2/3-7+2 = 25 .. ..
(The type 1 are easier and less time consuming and type 2 are more time consuming but still can be solved. 3 of the questions were of type1 and other 3 of type two)..
NOTE: Friends i will suggest you all to start with this section…first do the question 41 – 45 and then do the questions from 50 – 52…and then do whatever u like….coz these questions are v.v.v.v.easy.. and so u will gain lots of confidence after solving these 8 questions.. if u can then solve the ques 53 – 55 also else leave it for later on as it is very much time consuming…
IMPORTANT CHAPTERS TO BE DONE FOR THE APTITUDE TEST:
