NESS Technologies Paper Pattern 22 DEC 2006





After getting hard back-hits from 15 GR8 companies and not even making through written Exam atlast I was informed by my Placement officer that I am the one among 5 of MVSREC to become a member of NESS family.


Actually the Exam Procedure is as follows,


1) Verbal Test of 25 Minutes with 25 Questions. (General English Ability)


2) Quantitative Ability of 25 Minutes with 25 Questions. (RS Agarwal{Quant}, CAT material will be more than enough)


If one is through these two consecutive above tests then he had to appear for


3) Technical Test of 25 Minutes with some (I FORGOT :P) Questions and we have to write the answer there.(not a multiple choice).


4) Passage writing (we didn't have this).


5) HR Round



The pattern in NESS is  

1. Written Test

2. G.D

3. Technical Interview



Written Test contains 125 Questions (10 C, 15 C++, 25 Core Java, 25 J2EE, 50 Aptitude and Verbal)


C: In C all are basic questions i would like to advice you to read Yeswant Kanitkar,


C++: I dont know C++ so I left all the questions because negative marking is there, so be careful



I know Java very well, So i didn’t leave even one question. the Questions will be like

1.they gave me a java program which contains two main methods and asked me to predict the output

2.some questions on constructors
