Walk-In Test at Cisco
Test was for 1hour and there was around 10 questions. All questions were C-programs/C snippets which contains one or two logical errors. We were instructed to mark the error on the same sheet and describe the mistake.
Programms were based on data structures, string handling, arrays, dynamic memmory allocation etc which includes lot of pointer operations, function call and return. There was one program based on unix function calls like open, read, write which I was not familiar.
They told us that, I we are short listed, then they will be informing in one week, because the openings are in Chennai location. So the paper will be sent to Chennai location where it will be evaluated.
Now awaiting resopnse..
Yesterday(7 May 2011), I attented the interview.. It was a 1:1 interview. They asked about my previous experience, but when I started explaining they showed lack of interest, since my experience was on automotive embedded domain. Then I was told to write two C-programs.
1) To print a two dimensional array(square matrix) in the diagonaly
2) To print the contents of a simple linked list in the reverse order (without using multiple traversal and memory )
I was not able to write the answer to the second question as I was not so familier with data structures, I wrote program to reverse the linked list. I was told to leave after that..
I dont have much hope that they might call.. but still awaiting for a response.
