    Technical Interview:
         They were looking for a c/c++ programmer, so the questions were only about basic c syntax. It started with data types(primitive, derived & user defined). Then while discussing structures they also asked about bit fields and memory allocation for structure and union. Then moved on to data structures. Then we had a brief discussion on sorting algorithms and at the end they asked me to give the truth table for XNOR gate and example for contradiction. End some situation based questions.

    Nokia recruitment was a pool campus recruitment. It consisted of 3 rounds; Aptitude test, Technical Round, HR round.
    The aptitude test was conducted by ASPIRING MINDS (AMCAT) and consisted of five sections : Technical( OS, C++,C , DATA STRUCTURES), QUANTS, VERBAL, LOGICAL AND PROGRAMMING (C++ OR JAVA). AMCAT is a question adaptive test. So for me , the level of difficulty kept increasing. For aptitude, please refer to RS Agarwal, Indiabix , geek monkey.
    36 students out of 200 were shortlisted for further procedures . The interview was pool campus ( my college and another college). In total , 65 students were interviewed . During the technical interview , ALGORITHMS, DATA STRUCTURES( LINKED LISTS AND TREES) AND C++ questions were asked for me . Questions vary depending on your resume . So make sure you know everything in your resume .HR was simple. Overall, a very good experience. Be strong in your basics.
