Preparation Tip

Tip 1 : Do not totally depend on past interview questions or as such unless and until you have a strong foundation. Just build the foundation first in starting months.

Tip 3 : Try to solve the problem on your own. Just sink yourself into the question so much that you don't need to look for the solution.(Figure out solution in your own way).
Tip 4 : Regarding project, quantity doesn't matter but what matters the most is you should know about the project from start to end. Able to explain the project clearly. Be ready with technical as well as Behavioral questions.
