Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McAfee (Bengaluru (India)) in August 2011.

    Interview

    the written test is arranged by e-litmus for which u might find sample questions on internet.
    their were 60 questions in 2hr 30 mins(20-quant,20 logical,20-english).Quant was very tough equal to CAT level.
    So even attempting 5 correctly will qualify u for next round.. i would suggest to start with logical then english then quant.
    Before this e-litmus test their was a technical objective test with 20 questions in 30 minutes which is
    failrly simple.(general question on OS/give C program output etc.)
    Interviews they were mainly checking ur design capabilities. They asked me to design classes for Minesweeper and asked to write code for checking malicious code in e-mail.
    All the Best
