Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I like the writing style. It is more casual and less textbook feeling. It's like listening to someone who is very familair with the old AutoCAD, explaining the new version."

"It provided easily digestible information without all the unnecessary 'fluff' included in similar textbooks." "I plan on recommending this textbook for use in update training as well as recommending it to students who wish to purchase an update text." "I find this book to be unique and refreshing. I would be very surprised it was not a strong seller."

"I like the organization, the simplicity, easy to find list of commands (both deleted and new) and the brief 'how to use' explanations." "I think this reference guide would be a great insert in many different AutoCAD textbooks regardless of the publisher."
