HASH(0xa03bad80) out of 5 stars Pretty lousy "beginner" book. 10 Oct. 2014
By Jamie Bresner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm only on page 54 and I can't remember ever reading a book that's more frustrating. The author many times has mistaken clicking for double-clicking (or vice versa). No big deal. I figured it out. But on more critical explanations, the author skips steps leaving the reader (at least in my case) very confused how to get from step 1 to step 2 (when in fact there's at least an additional step that's left out). I'll give it to chapter 2, and if the material doesn't improve, the book is going in the trash.

HASH(0x9fbd3d80) out of 5 stars For School 9 Sept. 2013
By JaredL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I use this for school and it definitely helps tremendously. You probably want to have a little knowledge of Inventor and a good bit of AutoCAD experience before diving into this though. The illustrations are helpful I just wish there was more as the steps can get confusing. It is a small book and pretty light for all the material it has in it.

HASH(0x9fbd3c84) out of 5 stars Introduction to Inventor 15 Aug. 2013
By Larry Stegner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
He is an Excellent Instructor. It really works well to have Example Files that allow you to operate your Program as though you knew what yo were doing. It make me happy that I sprang for the full Inventor Suite. It is wonderfully Powerful.
HASH(0xa0ad0684) out of 5 stars Good Starting Point for Begginers 23 Dec. 2014
By Anon E-mouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For a beginner, this is an ideal starting point. For an intermediate user of Inventor there are other books that go in greater detail in setting up the Inventor environment. I particularly like the simple approach that the author takes in bringing the reader to a point where he or she can start using the software with a significant amount of confidence without explaining every single detail of the menus and setup options.
The final output of a design is the drawing document, I think even an intermediate user can benefit from this chapter.
If you are just starting to use Inventor '14 or '15, this book is for you.
HASH(0xa0739054) out of 5 stars Awesome for learning inventor yourself 29 July 2015
By Wes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Awesome for learning inventor yourself. This book walks you through inventor 2014 in very easy steps and has bonus content that helps you learn. Weather you are a hobbyist, or a professional trying to up your game, i highly recommend this book. We used it for curriculum in my Drafting Design Technology class and it was perfect. Great for people who want to learn to design for things like manufacturing or 3D Printing. And of course if you are a student, you can get Inventor for free from Auto Desk so the program isn't cost prohibitive!
