Autocad has a huge learning curve. It is not like any program I have used before. For instance photo shop is complicated, but you can start using it at a basic level quickly, and then develop you skill with it. This is not the fault of the book. I think you need to know why you want a Cad program, to get the most of the book.

I wanted to design a very simple bookcase, and see it in 3d. I failed in this quest. Is it because I am thick, the book is no good, or Autocad is not suitable. I think probably the third of these.

I have moved on to sketchup which is every thing i wished Autocad to be.

This dummy can now use Autocad - I bought this version to teach myself the basics of AC 2015, it was a lot cheaper & most of the commands are the same...

Difficult to understand, too much about equations and mathematics to be clearly understood by the beginner.
