About the Author

Ellen Finkelstein learned AutoCAD in Israel, where she always got to pore over the manual because it was in English. After returning to the United States, she started consulting and teaching AutoCAD as well as other computer programs, including Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. She also teaches courses on Web writing and usability. Her Web site, www., contains tips and techniques for AutoCAD, PowerPoint, and Flash. Ellen has written many articles on AutoCAD and PowerPoint and has written books on Word, PowerPoint,, and Flash (such as Flash MX 2004 For Dummies, published by Wiley). Her first book was AutoCAD For Dummies Quick Reference. You’re holding the fifth edition of this book, which previously appeared for AutoCAD releases 14, 2000, 2002, and 2004.

Great book for both novice and experienced users.. 3 Aug. 2004
By H. Dearborn - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you are using AutoCAD 2005 or LT 2005 as a beginner who needs step by step instruction or a seasoned AutoCAD user who can use a good reference manual - this book is well worth owning. It is a very thorough and clearly written book. No new or old AutoCAD feature is left unturned.

A Great CAD Resource! 12 Oct. 2004
By Dennis Greenley - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is clear, concise, and well-written. It covers everything I've needed to know about AutoCAD, and probably everything I'll ever want to know. Explanation of the more difficult concepts is thorough and complete, and the exercises are very helpful, keyed as they are to practice drawings on the included CD-ROM. A great reference...structured by topic, so it's easy to find what you need.

The Best AutoCAD Reference Book Around 20 July 2006
By Joseph Nastasi - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Finkelstein Bible series -as reference books for AutoCAD- stand head and shoulder above the others, the depth, the accuracy and the conscientious effort is unmatched. If a supplement book for exercises at the same technical level is published, we will definitely have an undisputed knock out.

Reason not to avoid using AutoCad any Longer................. 3 Feb. 2007
By Jim - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've been a long time CAD user experienced in almost everything but "AutoCad". Always seemed to find a way around using this industry standard (eg: .dxf or other file translator to bring into your CAD app). Well, after alot of digging my heels into the ground to avoid AutoCad, due to it's unfamiliar CAD interface and menu nomenclature, I decided to give this book a try. WOW, what an eye opener for me! Absolutely the best. Spend the time to do all of the excercises in this book and you'll no longer dread the unfamiliar GUI (graphical user interface) of ACAD. In a matter of approx. 40 hours of study, I feel relatively comfortable using ACAD, along with our other CAD programs. Do yourself a favor and get this book if you have any interest in learning ACAD, you won't regret it. Ellen Finkelstein and crew did an absolutely fabulous job!
This book is a must Buy/Read 28 Sept. 2007

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this book to refresh myself and the Dummies book for a quick reference.
I highly reccommend that.
This book walks you through step by step the entire process and well over 90% of the entire program.
The examples are very easy and the text is spot on accurate.
The only complaint I have is that I wish that the information that we hagve to enter was all in bold text.
Some is and some isn't, but this is a minor complaint compared to quality of the training you get from the material.
