WRITTEN TEST
Questions were divided into 3 sections-VERBAL(15 ques.),ANALYTICAL(15 ques.) & TECHNICAL (20 ques.).No negative marking.Guess as much as you can as there is no accuracy rate.
Verbal questions(Cut off-6 to 7 max.) were basically from Analogy,Jumbled sentences,Fill in the blanks.Also go through Antonyms n Synonyms.
Books I followed-BARONS,Word power made easy.
Analytical section(Cut off-6 to 7 max.) was completely filled with long reasoning questions(with simple answers).No questions came from Aptitude chapters like pecentage,profit n loss,time n distance etc.BEWARE, questions patterns can change inadvertently.So you never know.
Technical Section(Cut off-9 to 10 max.) was a part which was challenging because in WIPRO questions come from different areas of computers NOT ONLY C, C++,Data structure n RDBMS.There was only 5 to 6 questions from C and C++ out of 20 ques(structure,postfix-prefix,virtual function,file handling etc.).So study different previous year question papers to understand from which areas questions are coming.

10. in a race u drove 1st lap with 40kmph and in the second lap at what speed u
must drive so that ur average speed must be 80kmph.
Ans: its impossible! if u drove the first lap in 40 kmph, its impossible that the
average speed of both the laps is 80kmph.
for eg. consider one lap distance = 80km.
time req. to cover 1 lap = 80km/40kmph = 2 hrs.
if the avg. speed is 80kmph, then the total time would have taken =
160kms/80kmph = 2 hrs.
same is the case with any other distance u consider. so the avg to be 80kmph is
impossible

IBM ? Career Resources ? Interview Tips By IBM
If you make it to our shortlist of candidates, you?re ready to enter the next phase ? the interview. This is your chance to shine. You?ll need to be familiar with IBM and be honest and confident about yourself. Most of all, demonstrating the right attitude will get you far. Look for ways to illustrate the values that we hold dear.
There are no fixed questions in our interviews. Much will depend on the type of job you?ve applied for, the interviewer and how the interview unfolds. The interview is also a chance for you to find out more about IBM, so do prepare some questions of your own.
Before the interview ? Assess, prepare, rehearse.
Assess
Study the position for which you?ve applied. What strengths will make you effective on the job? Do you have an understanding of your weaknesses?
Prepare
Research IBM and the business units you might want to join. The IBM website is a great place to start. Think about questions you might want to ask during the interview. And don?t forget the outfit ? choose something that presents you well and reflects the position you hope to fill. Note details about the interviewing venue (date, time) and the interviewer (e.g. name and job role), so that you can prepare suitably. We will usually have a copy of your resume but bring one with you, just in case.
Rehearse
Run through a mock interview session with a trusted friend. We?ll want to learn more about you, so be prepared to share some information about yourself and your career. Questions will range from the objective (e.g. how many people did you manage) to the subjective (e.g. how could you add value to IBM if you got this job).
The day of the interview ? Rest, arrive, perform.
Rest
Interviews can be nerve wrecking, but make sure you get enough rest the night before. You?ll want to be mentally alert.
rrive
Plan to be at the interviewing venue at least half an hour ahead of time. This will allow you to collect your thoughts and appear cool and confident in front of us.
Perform
You can now put all that practice and preparation to work. We?re looking for people who can think well in a high-stress situation (like an interview!). Take your time to answer and don?t be afraid to ask the interviewer to repeat a question. A pause between thoughts is better than a garbled response.
Above all, relax and be calmly confident of your abilities. It?s all right to be nervous, but we hope your personality and passion will still shine through. This is a time to connect with us and show why you?re the right fit for IBM.

Cover Letter Makeover
Dramatically improve the effectiveness of your resume cover letters with helpful tips from a career expert.
Since your cover letter is written by you and for the job that you want, it may seem natural spend a lot of time talking about you and your skills/qualifications.
Unfortunately, this often produces myopic (or ?I-opic?) cover letters?and poor results.
Remember that all employers listen to the same radio station: WII-FM. That stands for ?What?s In It For Me??

To stand out from a stack of cover letters, yours must focus less on you and more on the results you can deliver.
If you do nothing else, try replacing the words ?I?, ?me? and ?my? with ?you? wherever possible. This will put the emphasis back where it belongs ? on the employer and his/her problems.
Here?s a before-and-after example of an actual cover letter. Note the number of times ?I? and ?my? appear:
?I am enclosing my resume for your review because I am very interested in obtaining a full-time position as an Investment Banking Analyst at Ace Financial.
?I am well qualified for this position. In addition to the strong quantitative and analytical skills I have developed as an undergraduate economics major and in my work experience, I have a proven ability to stay focused for long hours under pressure.?
There are five instances of ?I? and two of ?my.?
Now, here?s that same cover letter, revised to focus more on the reader:
?I am applying for the position of Investment Banking Analyst where my combination of economics training and high-tech experience will add value to your operations. Please consider the following:
?You will gain from my strong financial background, which includes a recent bachelor?s degree in economics, coupled with experience researching and trading securities as a successful investor (resulting in returns of 200%).?
Just one ?I? and two ?mys? ? a 57% reduction. With ?you? and ?your? thrown in twice for good measure.
