So for the first time Google conducted campus recruitment tests in Bangladesh. The test was conducted by Google India for jobs in Google USA.
This year the tests took place on Bangladesh University of Engineering & University (BUET), Dhaka University and North South University. The recently graduated batch and going to be graduated batch of the universities took part in the tests. The tests are indipendent, at BUET the test were on October 9, 2012 (http://www.buet.ac.bd/cse/calevents/calevents.php?eventsid=69). I am currently studying at BUET and took the test there.
The test took at exam hall, ECE building, BUET. First the delagates presented a presentation about Google, answered our questions. The presentation was great, we felt excited to know about Google and workspace and other fun and important parts about Google.
Then started the written exam. We are asked to bring pencil so that we can easily correct our codes as we have to write codes. The written test had two parts.
In first part, the questions are about algorithm complexity, algorithm categorization and network.
In second part, there are two coding problems. One is about bracket matching and another is about queue stack implementation. The delegates clearly instructed us to write code in popular languages like C++ / Java, not any pseudocode. They also instructed us to write correct, readble, clean code, and if possible generic code (like template code). By correct they did not mean correct syntax, missing some semicolon is not the problem, but correcting the format and other things.
I am not a good writer so forgive about the low quality 😛
