3.0 out of 5 stars Books ok but poorly put together, 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AutoCAD 2013 For Dummies (Paperback)
I am learning CAD from scratch hence why I purchased this book, now it's fairly well written though on occasions the author isn't particularly clear and has a tendency not to explain why you are using a certain function but all in all it's a good learning tool.

However the book is incredibly poorly put together, I only used the book for a few days (note I am always careful with books and treat them with respect) and it has just fallen apart therefore it's only a matter of time before pages get lost and the book is useless.

All in all I wouldn't advise people not to buy this book but I can't recommend it either

I have just received my copy. And straight from the packaging the book falls flat open with a significant crack along the spine and the nearby pages already beginning to detach.

This is just from taking the book out of the packaging - haven't attempted to read it yet.

Have returned it for replacement in the hope that it is a one off.

If that one is similar then I saw return that one too but for refund.
