How to crack?

Part I: Analytical Ability & Logical Reasoning

What is the smallest number in a GP whose sum is 38 and product 1728?


The above question is a sample question intended to get back to school days and get a thorough knowledge on basis of topics like Venn Diagrams, Ratios and Proportions, time and work, quadrilaterals, numbers, averages, profit and loss, mathematical series, percentage, permutation and combination, progressions, DI, visual reasoning, etc.
NCERT books & school syllabus from 5 – 10 standard is more than sufficient to crack.

Part II: English Proficiency

This section has RC passages with most questions being direct. Besides RC, logical arrangement of paragraphs, vocabulary based fill-in-the-blanks, analogies, sentence correction, essence/summary of a paragraph are the kind of questions that have traditionally appeared in this section.
Reading good books, newspaper and pay close attention for certain unknown words, grammar usage. Try to grasp the meanings and multifarious usages of those unknown words by consulting a standard dictionary like The Cambridge Advanced Learner’s Dictionary / Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary.

For the Vocabulary part of TISS preparation, refer to the following time-tested books:
1. “Word Power Made Easy” – By Norman Lewis
2. “All About Words” — By Rosenblum, Nurnberg

Part III: General Knowledge
Get in touch with current affairs, day-to-day business affairs for which we can follow leading newspapers like The Hindu, TOI, Indian Express. Also get in touch with static GK questions like history, first (kinda question).

Following books will boost your confidence:

1. Manorama Yearbook 2015, for a summary of major current events in 2015
2. General Knowledge Digest – Mani Ram Aggarwal (for static GK coverage)

Be cautious.!!! “TISSNET is simple to crack”. Practice with mocks to increase your self confidence.

Component 2 – PIT:

(For indicative purpose only, selection criteria may vary)

We have to write an essay on the given topic. Mostly topics hover around latest business trend, sensational topics, etc. to be completed in 35 minutes. No word limit, but a six page answer sheet will only be provided. Essay/business writing might be helpful.

Component 3 – PI:

(For indicative purpose only, selection criteria may vary)

Mostly 3on1 interview panel, 1 being the candidate and 3 being the panelists. You would heard of the command, “Open Random fire”, you will experience here. Stay chill is the only weapon with us to beat the panelists. Be sure on what you are delivering to them. Stay careful, as they there are the masters in the field.

Finally candidates are ranked based on overall performance and obvious we are in India, respect the reservation system and TISS gates are open for the best folks.
