1. First thing to be stored in your mind that there is no any shortcut for success same way for AMIE.
2. Make a delicate balance between AMIE study and your job. try to study daily minimum two hours.
3. For section A student they first take easy subject like Design and manufacturing and society and environment and score good grade to get exemption in material science, if you feel material science is tough .
4. If you are unable to prepare for 4 subject then prepare for minimum 2 subject such a way you must clear those subject in any condition.
5.For recommendation of books i want to say use those books for a subject which you can understand easily because clearance of concept is very important also take advice from your friend regarding this.
6.Study for AMIE with a consistency without this you can not complete your syllabus.
7.Before one week or 10 days back of AMIE examination do not start studying new thing it is better if you clear your concept what you have studied or revise it. quality is important not quantity.and clear this subject with good grade this will helpful to get exemption in other subject like material science.
Best Way way for study of AMIE
If an applicant passes Section A, Project Work, Laboratory experiments and Section B examination, he or she becomes an Associate of the Institution of Engineers (AIE). The Indian Ministry of Human Resource Development considers this qualification is equivalent to a degree in engineering. AIE was earlier Grad IE (Bachelor's degree of Institution).
Government of India in continuation to its earlier recognition, has recognized passing of sections A and B examinations as revised, conducted by The Institution of Engineers (India), as equivalent to bachelor's Degree in the appropriate branch of Engineering of the recognized universities in India.
AMIE is also recognized by UK-NARIC as British Bachelor's Honours degree. AMIE is also recognized by the Foreign Credential Service of America as equivalent to Bachelor's degree in engineering.
Minimum duration for passing both sections is 4 years, however professionals with 3 years polytechnic engineering can complete it in 3 years since they are exempted from certain examination papers of Section A. Project work, Laboratory experiments can be carried out only after clearing at least 5 subjects of Section B.
The Institution of Engineers (India) was established in 1920 in Kolkata, West Bengal and is acclaimed to have pioneered non-formal education in Engineering. IEI (I) conducts an examination for its Associate Membership. This examination is considered to be on par with B.E. / B.Tech. when contemplated as an eligibility qualification to write competitive examinations like the Indian Civil Service, Indian Engineering Services, GATE, etc., and for employment in Government, public and private sectors in India.
