Editorial Reviews

CheapTricks
This book is everything we had hoped it would be and more!…this incredible resource written by two most knowledgeable DataCAD gurus, Michael Smith and Richard Morse…A pure novice can get very clear explanations…An expert DataCAD user will find a host of new gems, tips, and techniques [and]…a host of bonus "freebies"…The graphics are excellent and plentiful, clear and instructive…This text shows a deep knowledge of the subject matter from the point of view of users who need to use DataCAD on a daily basis in a working architectural practice…The writing is very clear and conversational in tone…the CD that comes with the book is extra icing on the cake…it's too comprehensive; it's too accessible; it's got too many illustrations; it's too distracting from your other work…and it's just too damn wonderful!
