The written exam was conducted by aspiring minds and it consists of 4 sections
1. Verbal-24questions-30 mins
2. Aptitude-25 questions-35 mins
3. Reasoning-25 questions-35 min
4. Computer programing-25-35 mins
Among the four sections verbal is little bit difficult.Remaining 2 sections aptitude and reasoning are dead easy only for clarity refer inwww.aspiringminds.com you will get 12 sample questions on each section and alsosyllabus. (But first you have to register you are self) LCM, HCF, pipes, logarithms (important), surds, probability, permutation andcombination are very important and just revise intermediate JP's eamcet material for(probability) only.
Reasoning just follow R.S Aggarwal, it's more than enough mainly they are asking serieswhich are dead easy, coding and decoding very easy, puzzle test and they are touchingall concepts in reasoning but they are very easy. Computer programing, they are not concerned on one particular language, for csestudents it is very easy, other departments don't forget to prepare concepts like datastructures stack implementation, sorting algorithms just concept, main important spacecomplexity, time complexity, asymtotic notations.
