This books makes a very difficult software easy to use. I like the step by step instructions. The graphics and pictures of what the screen looks like is very helpful. This book is very user-friendly. Thumbs up to Sykes for making this easy for even me to learn.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I was lucky enough to take Sykes' autocad 2000 basics class. We used his text which was so thorough and easy to follow, he could have stayed home! (But I'm glad he didn't.) I really look forward to the Advanced text.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
