I am learning AutoCAD and bought this guide because it seemed like the best option.

I found this book to be well written by the author, but like most FOR DUMMIES guides, there is far too much bluster and I spend a lot of time just wishing I could get to the point.

It is probably a good guide for people who are a bit nervous about AutoCAD, but not so good for those who just want to get on with it.

Some sections of this book are not clear. There should be more screen print figures to describe certain aspects of Autocad. And the biggest disapointment for me was that the book does not cover 3D drawing.

Purchased this book at a really good price. If you need to understand more about autocad and dint want to break the bank then this is the way forward. Well laid out and not too difficult to understand.

Great book and you would be a dummy if you were learning AutoCad and did not buy this book. Full marks to the book and the seller.
