1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly Written, plethora of errors 16 Mar 2013
By cgeyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Perhaps if you've studied AutoCAD before, this book won't be hard to understand and you can simply overlook the million errors. As someone who is new to AutoCAD I find the program challenging in itself, yes. But this book turns the challenge into a sheer disaster. I'm not sure if the authors have ever written a book before for this book is riddled with problems. Or they skipped the editing process. Misused terms or terms are interchanged adding levels of confusion, wrong references with pictures, skipped steps or steps labeled in the wrong area, wrong graphics used in problems. The layout doesn't help at all, it's poorly organized! Examples:

-Figures are labeled in numbers, chapters are in number, problems are in numbers and all in the same format. So figure 3-2 is on page 102, exercise 3-2 is on page 125, project 3-2 is on page 165. And it goes on...1-1,1-2,1-3...3-1, 3-2, 3-3....All in the same fonts and colors.

-Exercise commands reference pictures on the previous page, or a future page, making it difficult to follow along while you're trying to click and type and turn the page back and forth. There was no forethought on how a user is going to follow along with an exercise. It's not just here and there, it happens frequently.

-The entire book's headline/sub headlines system doesn't give and level of authority nor organization for topics so the entire chapter feels like a run on sentence that never ends! And FORGET trying to look something up within a chapter, for nothing catches your eye. It's easier to look up the term in the index than look through the chapter that you just read.

- The Prompt/Response: Leaves one scratching your head. So many things left out, and how it's formatted sometime the response they want you do is under the prompt and not under the response, so you have to read very carefully, mess up a few times, and then go back and figure it out.

There are many more examples, but I'm just going to say if you are a first time user wanting to learn: save you money and your mind, don't buy this book if you have a choice. There has got to be something else out there, anything else, just not this book.
