    Outstanding Book!

    Love! Love! Love this book! This book is so well written. Whenever I'm training someone in CAD design. I send them home with this book first to read up. This book clearly describes CAD point by point. I soooooo recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn CAD design. Jennie Lynn Johanson
