NOT THE HELP I HOPED IT WOULD BE!
on 13 July 2013
Don't know if I landed with a one off, but all conversions to mm were incorrect in the book I received! Some of the corresponding diagrams showed incorrect detail as well!
I already had some AutoCAD experience and purchased this as an aid for starting a new job. This book is not a generalised training guide, but is based on an architectural tutorial, which is not made clear before purchase, and was very little help to me with the engineering fabrication drawings required in my new employment.
As a start-up for a beginner, I think it would easily confuse the reader. Too many long winded complicated explanations for straightforward processes, me thinks the author trying too hard to emphasise his own intelligence, filling the void.
The book is further hindered by poor editing and an awkward layout. There are better buys. Can I get a refund?! :)
