To prepare for Infosys,first of all you have to believe in God and you ought to have forget all your previous failures and never ever depend on luck bcoz it’s the 90% hard work and only 10% luck for being successful.

Infosys paper consists of two papers:

for verbal Section,do just only RS Aggarwal –Verbal and Non Verbal reasoning.
Do the following chapters thoroughly:-

Learn only the formulae and just take an overview of how the problem is approached

Who has the highest money?
Who has the least money? Etc…
