okay, as a former manager in adobe, i can list down the attributes that adobe look for in a candidate : 
a. Excellent technical skills. Be prepared to take a grilling technical tests on quant, anal, c,c++/java or testing domains. Adobe values technical skills highly and even managers have to take this test. The idea behind test is to check knowledge of basic computer science concepts, data structures, graphics domain etc. 
b. Be prepared for at least 4 rounds of technical interview, each lasting 1 hour.; apart from 1 hour HR round. you will be tested for your knowledge of data structure, networking, basic OS, Comp Sci concepts, programming skills. There will be a few puzzles to test your analytical ability. 
c. And of course, adobe will quiz you about your cv, experience in previous companies, college projects, academics etc. etc.  
d. If you can demonstrate positive attitude, with deep technical skillset , flair to think innovatively and long-term career goals with adobe, then you will, absolutely, make it. 
Best of Luck

hey there ppl,
well i appeared for the Adobe test today in my campus today ie. 12-05-06, n it was the same as mentioned above.
the Quanti was very easy..but requires fast solving ability, involves basic Geometry, algebra and Percentages n ratios etc.
the analytical problems were not that difficult too.
there were about (15 + 30) objective questions..then came the subjective?

some questions like?
1) diff bet char a[]=?123″;
char *a = ?123″;
2) whats the problem with the function

int function(int x)
return(x*function (x-1));
3) some basic c syntax

then the Programs.

some C programs worth mentioning would be:

1) finding height of a binary tree
2) Displayin the fibonacci series (with recursion)
3) Flippin the 20th bit of a number
4) Flippin all the Odd bits of a number
5) ATOI() function
6) prdict the output of the following program :
***** some program (mainly recursion)
7)program to find if mc is little endian or big endian.
8)program to generate the mirror of the binary tree
8) program to swap two linked list nodes.
9) calculate the complexity of
*****some code****

enjoy the test ..
==> focus on the aptitude
==> focus on algorithms instead of codes

have fun

I have jst attened the written test for Adobe and feel pleased to inform you that i have cleared the exam as well as the interview. I joined Adobe, Noida few days back. Hope this help you all in clicking Adobe. If any one of you want me to forward your resume you can send it to me on "".
There were four section:
1. Aptitude: They had fairly simple arithmatic question, questions on geometry and questions like whether information can be deduced from the comments given. It was fairly easy and jst u need to have basic clear.
2. Analytical: Questions like pattern matching, odd one out were there.
Be careful while attempting these two sections that u wont be having much time.
Before u know the time is over.
3. Computers: This paper is mostly from the topics u cover in B.Tech.
there was one question on finite automata,Bit manipultaion(flipping the bits),
drawing the tree given preorder and inorder traversal, finding the formula for N-ary tree
to fine number of external nodes.
4. C/Java: Here u had to write C programs(Mind u no mutiple questions).There was one question to write program to search a string from bigger string, write  a algorithm to compute X^n which is of complextity log n, implement atoi function.(U cannot use any standard function in these.)
Hope this help u in cracking Adobe.
if u still need any help u can get back to me.

Hi guys, I underwent Adobe's written and interview procedure a couple of weeks before ( i.e., Nov, 2006 ) The written was almost simple. We are expected the basic mathematical knowledge, Analytical and Programming skills. There had been a lot of reviews on the written test. Refer, which has an exhaustive information about the written test and I would rather not repeat the same here. The interview process as anybody would say, is hectic and there were 2 rounds for 4 hours !! They mainly wanted to test my problem solving skills, technical knowledge, basic programming concepts, algorithms, etc., * Puzzles The puzzles were well known puzzles. 1. There are 50 red and 50 blue balls. Arrange them in 2 baskets, such that the probability of getting a blue ball is more 2. How many paths are there when you move from (0,0) to (n,n) in the 1st quadrant of the graph, provided the constraint that you can move either one step above or one step right at any point of time. 3. Two equal similar threads ( not the computer process related thread, its physical thread ) having different burning rate at different lengths are given. It takes 1 hour to burn out each thread. Measure 45 minutes * Programming concepts 1. As obvious, we will be drilled with pointers and pointers of pointers 2. Memory allocation and de-allocation ( I was asked to write a function and memory handling concepts were discussed, as where memory allocation has to be done, where it has to be freed and why ?. . . . . . ) 3. Scope of variables ( eg. returning a local variable, etc., ) 4. Given a function, I was asked to generate test cases 5. There were a couple of questions from Java as whats inheritance, why multiple inheritance not possible in Java, rather in C++. Advantages of this and how its implemented in Java. Garbage collection in Java, why not in C++ how to implement it in C++ and how it is done in Java 6. What are xml databases ? whats the difference between this and the relational databases and how will you map them etc., * Algorithms 1.Array of numbers were given. They wanted me to arrange the numbers within the array in different patterns say, first 5 numbers as the last 5 and vice versa. Ascending order, descending order, biggest number first and next biggest at last and so on so that you will get the minimum number in the middle.. For all these you can use temporary variables ( 1 or 2 ) and not any temporary arrays 2. How will you find an existence of loop in an infinite length of a linked list 3. How will you find an existence of intersection in given 2 linked list These are some of the questions that I remember now. Anyways even if I have missed some, they were of this sort only. If the fundamentals are strong, you can make up the interview. All the best

Hi,I attended Adobe interview recently, after completing 1 written test there were 4 technical rounds same day, I was called next day for 2 more rounds.I had 1 technical round and was told HR round will follow, after some time I was told HR person is busy will contact later for the interview.Evening I recevied two mails, 1. For written test again and followed by another mail saying will evaluate other candidates. when I replied I already had written test then, I got mail saying re-appear for written test.The interview process is too long, and it doesnt seem to be like going up in level's.Each interviewer seems to be not having what the earlier interviewer rated. its bad.If you have good time to spend or jobless attend Adobe interview, its just waste of time and money.They have many interviewers it seems.-:) Raj

I just attended the test today for QE. It was OK. QE objectives questions were good, u should know about regreesion, functionality, black box etc to answer those. Then there were subjective questions like
1) Write 10 test cases for a program to increment an entered date in mm/dd/yyyy format by 1 day, the conditions are

2) Write 5 reasons for not fixing a bug

3) A student database got a table with 2 columns, one for name (after 30 char, truncate) and class (1 to 10).

 Following r the 3 operations u can perform:
When a student joins, insert the record
When a studenr leaves, delete the record
When a student passes, increment the class
Write 5 test cases for the above

4) Write the bug report for the following problem in a spread sheet application that does data sorting in both ascending and descending way. Problem is that descending sorting is not working for a particular column 99.

And then there were aptitude questions. Quantitives were easy. there was one data interpretationg based Q and then there were analutical Qs which were time consuming. By the time u could solve one, time would have got over :(

All the best folks!!!
