    New to eaglecad?

    I picked up the physical copy of this book on the belief it would help fill in some of the blanks i had with EagleCAD. I was not wrong. The book helped a lot, and cleared up my confusion with the setup of my circuit design rules.
    I would certainly recomend to anyone getting into creating your own PCB's.
