    'NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED' - ANY EXPERIENCE, DON'T LOOK HERE!

    This is a VERY basic book. I've used Autocad since Release 9. To anyone who has any experience with Autocad what so ever, this book would be a waste of money. In my opinion, its so basic, its not even a good reference book. If you are planning to 'start' using autocad, this book might be helpful to you.
