    It is very good that you are thinking about your placements right from your first year of engineering. First of all let me clear you with one point, having good aptitude skills is not the only criteria for clearing your placements. Aptitude is just a screening part of the placement program. In order to develop your aptitude skills, main things to be achieved are to be very fast in calculations, analytical thinking and having a very good problem solving capability. These skills could be obtained by having a good practice on such things. I would recommend you to start preparing from the best analytical and quantitative aptitude books available in the market like Quantitative aptitude by R.S.Agarwal and Verbal and Non-Verbal Ability by R.S.Agarwal. It would be very helpful for you throughout the life if you gain good expertise in such skills. Secondly try be more efficient in speaking as that is another important criteria for you to succeed in placements. In order to gain these qualities, try to participate in any speaking related activities, seminars etc.

    Aptitude is the essential part for selection in every company. No matter how much you've studied in the 4 years of Engg. , it's the aptitude that leads you to your dream company.
    In order to be selected in a company, you need to work on the following things :

    1. Dressing Sense
    2. Body Language
    3. Confidence
    4. English speaking
    5. Aptitude
    6. Maintain atleast 65% throught each semester.

    For Aptitude, there are a lot of books available in market. I would recommend you "Quantitative Aptitude" by Dr. R.S. Aggarwal. It's the best book for Aptitude. Infact, most of the companies & banks create their question paper from this book.

    All the best for future.

    Hi,
    To excel in aptitude try the following steps:


    • Since you are a first year Engineering student allot some time every week and practice aptitude by referring internet or some books like R.S.Aggarwal Quantitative Aptitude and Verbal Reasoning.Weekly practice is enough since you are in fist year and increase your practice time as you progress.
    • Later when you know at what company you are going to attend the interview then practice the aptitude questions specific for that company by referring the previous question papers.

    Apart from this concentrate in your career subjects since it is so vital to get placed.

    Thank You.

    I appreciate your concern regarding your placement after completion of your course.Yes, you are absolutely correct, aptitude is one of the important factor used by companies at the time of campus placement.You can learn aptitude skills at the duration of your course and doing some extra studies outside your course.You must be enthusiastic for developing you skill during the whole duration of your course.You must be frequent in speaking as most of the interviewers tests the self confidence and the speaking skills of each and every student.
    So work hard develops your skills right from today so you will surely have a good campus placement.Best of luck........

    Hello Friend,

    It's really heartening to find the serious aspirants like you.There are basically three components of aptitude:-Quantitative,Logical and Reasoning ,Verbal.For quantitative you can study R.S. Agrawal and Shakuntala Devi's Puzzles book.Emphasize more on basic mathematics topic like percentage,Ratio,Geometry etc. For Logical and reasoning you can refer to the sites like Indiabix,GPL4you ,freshersworld etc.

    For improving verbal abilities you should refer CAT,GMAT,GRE material ,It's more than useful for improving verbal abilities.

    Hope It Helps!

    Aptitude reasoning is a part of reasoning test and it is mandatory test to join any company. So you have to work on it from your first year. The best way to improve your aptitude reasoning is to practise more number of questions. You can solve the previous years question papers and test series on the internet.

    Many engg. colleges have their own plans for this purpose. They keep many subjects such as professional communication, Management and others in order to improve their student quality. Talk in English with your colleagues. It'll help you a lot at the end of degree during placement. Never lose an opportunities related to co-curricular activities and in the same way don't lose your technical practice. Be in touch with your subjects. spend time in aptitude books during free time. You have 4 long years to improve your aptitude. So start preparing seriously. Plan before you do anything. Consult your dept. faculties related to this. They may give some information related to the programmes offered by your college related to this.

    Hi. Yes, Aptitude skills do play a major role in campus placements.It is a wise decision to hone your aptitude skills right from the first year.

    For Quantitative aptitude a book on this by Dr. R.S. Aggarwal or by Dr. Arun Sharma solves the purpose.

    For the verbal section you should develop the habit of reading the Editorials of reputed newspapers- The Hindu, Economic times, Times of India, Hindustan Times etc.

    General Knowledge is also vital. for this you can refer to Manorama Year Book.

    Refer to the Website www.testfunda.com. You can take tests here and refer to thei correspondent material.

    Best of luck for your future. Thanx

Don't be confused with the word Aptitude, its simple applying tricks to the mathematics you have learnt till date. Just thorough yourself with the mathematics till high school. Then start working out problems on higher level, there are many books available in the market eg-

    These books will help you excel in the Quantitative Aptitude Section. But before you start practicing, go through the previous placement papers.Every company has a pattern and they ask questions from the specified topics only. So you should prepare accordingly.

    It is nice to see that you want to improve your aptitude right from the beginning.However,do not neglect the technical knowledge as it is the key to your campus placement.Your aptitude is just a check on your personality.So,you should concentrate more on conceptual information and technical knowledge.However,you can improve your aptitude side by side by participating in various cultural programmes of your college like debate,elocution,etc. to build a good personality.You have to improve your communication skills first as it is one of the main criteria during interviews.You can consult many books in order to improve your aptitude and general knowledge.You have to modify your thinking in a logical and analytical one.
    Some of the books are:
    1. Quantitative and verbal reasoning ĖBy R.S. Agarwal

    Hi

    Aptitude is one of the most important aspect that the interviewer looks in students before hiring them.

    Repeated practice of mathematical problems can help in improving the aptitude of a student.

    One also needs strong logical abilities to do good in aptitude problems. I would suggest developing your logical deduction abilities.

    The best and most interesting way that I can suggest to do so is to solve some sodoku puzzles everyday.

    Apart from this there are numerous books available in the market that can help you this.

    Also try some lateral thinking puzzles as they really instigate your brain to work harder.

    Hope this helps

    First concentrate on you studies for the first two years.. Aptitude cannot be studied in one day, if you have interest in finding the answer to the riddles you can definitely do well in the aptitude, just prepare in your free time only if you are interested.. Dont memorise any stuffs just try to understand how that formula is used by logical thinking... In some colleges aptitude test will be skipped for those whose CGPA are higher than 8... After clearing the apti you need to attend the GD followed by the direct interview.. Sometimes you will be required to get qualified in stress interview.. So lay your basics strong from your first year.......

    Hi..Ya your aptitude skills will take you a long way in clearing your various interviews and also will definitely give you an edge over the others if you start from the beginning of your course itself..Its surely the best way to succeed in your campus placements other than your bookish knowledge..

    For your aptitude skills firstly you should make it a habit of reading the newspaper on a daily basis ..Read the current topics mainly and lay stress on some good articles of various reputed publications..You may also read good GK books also which will also enhance your chances of getting through the interview along with your aptitude..

    Also try to solve various puzzles and crosswords from various newspapers and magazines as these help you a lot in developing your vocabulary plus also in the written part..Try your best and give sometime each day to your aptitude skills so thatb by the time you pass your skills are fully polished..

    Good luck

    Hello friend,

    Not only for placement for any competetive exams aptitude is must so start preparing it from the beginning
    generally enginnering students follow R.S.Agarwal books for aptitude and reasoning apart from this refer Quicker maths by M Tyra to solve the problems fast and shakuntala devi puzzles this much is enough to crack any written for placement but for MBA you have to go deep and learn few more techniques and should have good command on apti and reasoning to crack it.

    Thank You.

    Re: What are the steps to be taken right from the 1st year of Engineering to make the Aptitude skills strong as it is the path way to get the job in Campus placement?

    Hey!
    Its really satisfying to see that there are students like you who are aware that honing your aptitude skills right from the first year are of utmost importance for a campus placements. However, I want to make you aware about the exact procedure of placement. It has the following rounds:
    1. Written Aptitude test
    2. Group discussion
    3. Interview round (which can be either human resource interview or technical interview or both)
    4. Job offer and job letter.

    In some interviews, one integral part of the process can be Case Studies. In order to get a good placement offer one needs to master not only aptitude exams but also group discussions, interviews and case studies.

    As far as your preaparation is concerned, for your aptitiude skills you can refer to one good book which deals with aptitude skills like Quantitative Aptitude by Arun Sharma. The questions given in LOD 1 ahould be sufficient to sail you through the first round of interview. Constant practice, speedy calculations and accuracy are the key to success here! For Group discussions it is very important to read good books, daily newspaper and weekly magazines. These will help you build general awareness and will also increase your knowledge of a wide range of subjects. The nuances of Group Discussion can be imbibed through practice. You can join some clubs in your college which help the students practice Group Discussions.

    For the interview section be clear that the people who are interviewing you have many years of experience and hence the best thing to do in an interview is to be honest. Prepare for a technical interview also by seeing the job profile and strengthening those subjects which you think will fall in that domain. Case studies can be procured from the website of 'Harvard Business Review'. This is an art that needs to be learnt so you should prcatice these!

    Be dedicated and I am sure you will land up with a good job!
    All the best!

    Dear friend,

    In order to improve your aptitude skills you need to practice it.

    There is no other loop hole.

    But first of all learn the basic mathematics needed for solving the aptitude problems which are mostly quantitative.

    Also due focus should be given to communicative english too + comprehension ability.

    The book "Quantitative Aptitude" by Aggarwl is very useful.

    Wish you all the best.
