I have recieved queries as to whether any specific reading is required before you guyz land here. Well, this is the time for you guyz to chill out and soak it all in.
But still if you guyz have nothing much to do and want to brush up some stuff, then I would say that just brush up a bit on probability, concepts of differentiation (no formulae... just the concepts like maxima, minima etc) and basic statistics fundae.
To those who want more, you can probably do a bit of macroeconmics and microeconomics reading from investopedia.com or wikipedia.org. Its not imperative though

Me too...me too.
Count me in.
Anyone else with K calls or any seniors from Chennai? Pls PM me.
Feels good to have made it and look forward to a rewarding 2 years.
Glad to have made it to God's Own IIM
Will soon bug the seniors with lotsa queries
That said, you will need some sort of proof if you get your final call to K. Things will get a little difficult otherwise.
So, if you are confident that you can get a certi or atleast a print of the email sent across to confirm that you are the employee of the month/year, then you are most eligible to put that on your K form. Otherwise, tread cautiously.
Great to see all the help that the guyz from kozhikode r giving us...
I have a very specific query:
I recieved the Achiever's award at my company for the year 2005. I know that this might be a big factor during the interview. But the problem is that we havent had a special certificate given to the achievers yet. We had a photo session and all that but nothing has been given on paper yet. Nothing has been put up on the intranet as well. I expect the certificate or award (whatever it is) to be distributed during some meet or company event in the not so far future. But as to whether I will recieve it before the interview is not sure. Obviously cant take up the issue with the HR, so that puts me in a fix. I am wondering whether I should put this info in the form that K has sent out and whether I can speak about it during my interview. Since I wont have any proof, would that make them look at my claim with suspicion?
Seniors please pour in your thoughts.
P.S - I work in a company and domain that the Panel might be keen to discuss about and yeah I do think the award might make my interview a tad easier. :satisfie:
