"I absolutely loved this book. Once I started reading this book, it was hard to put it down. It was much like a well loved novel. The proposed organization of this book was great. It is well written. The information in the charts and illustrations fit each topic. Many of the chapters were short in length which made it easier to offer one a chance to absorb the subject better.... There is enough information in this book that several syllabuses can be made up for several semesters."

Kindle edition is limited
on 23 January 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
I just downloaded the Kindle (for iPad) edition of this book, and the view options have been disabled by the publisher so there is no way to view a two-page display in landscape mode, among other limitations. I'm sure this will be an invaluable reference, but so far this is disappointing right off the bat.

Exactly what I was looking for
on 20 September 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
This is the book required for the Architectural Drafting and Residential Drawing classes I am currently taking in college and the Amazon price was half the cost for the same book in the campus bookstore. The campus bookstore was currently out of this book and was taking backorders but I needed the book right away so I paid for overnight shipping and still saved a lot of cash. I will be checking Amazon.com for all the books I will be needing in the future, I already pay enough for college classes and I don't see why they think we should pay so much for the required books in the campus bookstore.
Architectural Drafting soting the essence from the passion

I found it quite comprehensive geared understandably to American terms and protocols but still extremely useful. Finding information on the CD was not easy for me, but younger wiz bang computer gurus should have no problem finding their way around. I wish that I could have afforded a book like this when I was a student.
Great book other than some of the dimensions are missing ...
