Interview Preparation Tips

Interview preparation tips for other job seekers - Well be prepared with DSA,OOPs and DBMS concept. If you don't know BST or Graphs or Heaps that well, no problem just be confident. Most of the times they don't ask anything more that linked list.
If you don't know the answer of a coding question (NOTE: not a theoretical question) try for sometime to come up with the solution and while thinking keep saying your approach out loud to the interview and if after taking 1 to 2 mins you still don't know just say, Sorry I can't recall it right now but I will definitely get to it after the interview. Don't use this approach for theoretical questions, Either you have an answer to that or not.
Never Beat around the bush, be specific and to the point.

And at last, I just wanna say that passing an interview needs 40% skill, 20% communication, 20% confidence, 10% mood of the interview and 10% is luck.

Why I am saying mood of the interview and luck????
In my case, I was not selected for the final HR round. First of all, in all 137 students selected for the technical interview, my name was at 111 and randomly they called the first student for the interview and it was me. So that's luck.
OK after I entered my interviewer cabin, I saw a look of aggression on my interviewers face. We didn't smiled once during my 50min interview. He didn't even asked me to introduce myself.

He asked me 15 questions in total and I correctly answers 10 of them to the point and for the rest 5 I explained my approach to them.
Still I got rejected, and one of my friend who was answered like 2 questions out of 10 got selected because his interviewer was different. (NOTE: I am really happy for my friend, He is like my best buddy and my only well wisher that I know about).

So yeah just prepare well and be confident and even if things go south and you gave your best, just think that today was not your day and just move on.
