The teaching learning process in every domain keeps changing abreast to academic and industrial practises. Other than knowledge, the acquisition of skill sets is demanded nowadays. The present generation may be a computer wizard, a scientific mastermind or a technocrat, but they are expected to possess a good skill set. To be successful, subject expertise alone is not enough. In this context, the Higher Education Department, Govt. of Andhra Pradesh has published a Student's Hand Book Skill Genie (SHBSG -2016). A very laudable attempt and this move certainly helps students to refine their communicative competency and soft skills which absolutely increases their employability quotient. This chapter reviewed the appropriateness and usefulness of the book through a select lesson and the authors of this research paper wanted to share the class room experiments and anew experience which they tried in an academic setting with III ECE “A” (2017 -2021 batch), Mepco Schlenk Engineering College, Sivakasi. In addition to that, this chapter appraises Skill Genie (SG) as well.
