Overview

AutoCAD 2004 Instructor is intended for instructor-lead instruction and self-instruction in AutoCAD software. AutoCAD is the market leader for all CAD software and is used by nearly two million students and professionals in architecture, engineering, construction, and design. AutoCAD 2004 Instructor makes it easy to upgrade from previous versions of AutoCAD by the use of a 2004 bar in the margin that highlights the new features.

Developed from teaching techniques used in an authorized AutoCAD Training Center and in instruction for engineering colleges, AutoCAD 2004 Instructor covers all features and capabilities of AutoCAD. The text is command-oriented so chapters are centered around groups of related commands. This feature makes the text very effective as a reference text. The chapters are structured in a practical/pedagogical sequence beginning with instruction in general procedures for using the computer interface, setting up and creating drawings, and then progressing to advanced features such as dimensioning, special drawing applications and AutoCAD features, three-dimensional modeling and rendering, and software customization.

McGraw-Hill is proud to be one of the first and few publishers to have a text on AutoCAD 2004.
