Both text and exercise manual replete with errors -- incorrect, inaccurate, missing or incomplete directions/instructions. Misspellings and grammatical gobbledygook. If you've purchased the book and are having trouble 'harnessing autocad', don't assume it's all user-error.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
