Format: Paperback
Great quick reference guide. Well explained and easy to use. Most of the sections start with the basics in easy to understand language. Its not really a course of lessons that will teach you how to use the program but its great for looking up how to trim a line, or dimension a drawing etc.

It is a fun, easy to read reference book 21 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
9/7/99
I was browsing through AutoCAD 2000 For Dummies in particular Part IV - Having it your way. I was especially interested in some of the 3D features so I started reading this portion of the book. I found the tips and warnings given to be very helpful, clear and to the point. In my opinion, the best part of this book is when the author makes remarks with the new features offered by AutoCAD 2000, like the new 3D orbit, which I consider amazing! This reference book makes it easy to include the new features AutoCAD 2000 has to offer in the day-to-day work without loosing time by having to read one of those huge manuals. It is a fun, easy to read reference book that will help users of AutoCAD to find quick answers. I would say it is definitely a keeper!

Excellent refresher for past version users 2 Feb. 2000
By PETER W WEHMEYER - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is excellent for former users of Autocad 11 - 14. It lets you know what sections you can skip and get down to the newer features that are unfamiliar. This book would be a good guide for those with any CAD background at all.

Waste of Shelf Space 20 Dec. 2001
By Merle Southard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author starts the book by telling you how great the book is and how clear and straightforwared he's going to be... and to be honest, it does indeed start out quite well (about 3 pages worth?). But it became evident early on that he "lost his legs" as he continued to write the book. His examples quickly degraded into useless collections of codings - they simply did not work as advertised. Worse than this, when he's trying to make a point, he provides examples that are far too complicated for what he's attempting to illustrate (but remember, they usually don't work anyhow). Bottom line: Snoopy has more writing talent than this guy. (...)Trust me on this one -(...)

A beginners guide with nowhere to go 27 Mar. 2002
By John Nickerson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you have access to AutoCAD but have no reason to use it on a professional level this book may be fine. If you are purchasing this and already own a couple other manuals to look things up in, it's ok for the humor. The book is not large enough to touch on all the facets of AutoCAD and the massive program it has become. If you intend to make a living with AutoCAD look elsewhere. I watched a co-worker attempt to jump a couple revs with this book. He was better off with his previous knowledge than after three days with this book.
Not enough excercises 2 April 2013
By Frank La Fauci - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are only one or two excercise questions at the end of each sections. In the old days, these types of learning books had anywhere from 10 to 25 excercises. Good as a fast refresher only if you know the subject matter. The separate work book may help but not tried.
