Other comments

1. Try to think loud and keep communicating with the interviewer. Interviewer is very much interested in your thought process and approach.
In the first round, when I was stuck for like 5-6 minutes, I kept thinking loud and communicating with him where I was stuck. And soon enough I picked up what I was missing and finally coded it up.

2. I did a little research about the company and prepared around 5 questions to ask to the interviewer . It make a very good impact, if you ask questions and you show that you have done some company research.
That you are prepared

3. Prepare well for HR questions. You should "understand the interviewer's mindset" that why is he asking this question and what he wants ?
Why should we hire you ? : Interviewer wants you to relate job desc. with your skills, and want to know whether you know about job desc., and how enthusiastic you are about the company.
What is the definition of success for you ? : Interviewer wants to know if you will stay in the job for a long term or not ? If you would be satisfied here or you will wander away.

4. Last moment revision may help in Computer Subjects Like OS, DBMS. I revised DBMS two days earlier and read about ACID properties. If I hadn't revised it then, I for sure would not be able to tell even the full form of ACID. But because of that revision, I explained ACID properties well and confidently.
