Yay my book is finally ready for pick-up! I'm soo excited!! I'm a first year student for Architecture and can't believe I never thought of buying this book before I started my studio class. I just finished my Design 1 class this semester and finished with an A. I'm hoping to improve my model making skills, although my teacher says I have excellent craftmanship. Has anyone gotten this book? Would you say it is very helpful for a newbie starting their Architecture Major? Someone review please! Thanks....
