Top critical review
on 11 February 2011
I did not find this book easy to read, long winded sentences, in some cases pages! between lines of input instructions. Also I found several mistakes which had me scratching my head and staring blankly at the screen. The dual input instructions for Imperial and Metric coordinates did not exactly help either, It should be one or the other although having said that, there were a couple of instances when the Metric coordinates were completely missing which was obviously quite frustrating. I have worked through the course up to page 290 ( 900 left to go) and decided this book is not for me, I have now ordered "Introduction to AutoCAD 2010" by Alf Yarwood hopefully this book, may be for me.
I am not new to AutoCAD and I have read several other AutoCAD books before, such as the excellent "An introduction to AutoCAD 2000" by Alf Yarwood and the even better "AutoCAD 2002 3D modeling, a visual approach" by John Wilson (recommended by my college tutor) both of which i found more concise and much easier to follow.
