Format: Paperback
I just wanted to add to the review re:kindle edition, by reviewing my hard copy which came with the CD. The two learning resources work very well together; personally I worked through the book using the files on the disk and referred to a number of tutorials to re-inforce the learning curve where necessary. Although a newcomer to CAD, I felt confident using the software in no time. The only negative to the book in my opinion is that the focus in on imperial measurements. Clearly a significant attempt had been made to make the book relevant to those familiar with metric systems as well but this was not as easy to follow. Nevertheless this book has served me well!

Good price (came from USA) and a heavyweight book.
I've used Autocad for many years and know a lot of the information
contained in this book, but there's still loads more to learn.
I'd highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
A very useful book which takes you through the learning process step by step. Perhaps more attention should be paid to the metric user as George seems to forget about that occasionally.
As a Mac user I found it difficult to follow at times, owing to the Mac version of AutoCAD being different from the Windows version.
