VectorWorks 10 for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide will help you get up-to-speed on all of these new features quickly and easily. Updated to reflect the program's streamlined interface and tools, this step-by-step task-based reference explains the new Resource Browser, touches on the advanced 3D modeling tools, and includes an entirely new chapter on customizing the VectorWorks interface to make tools more accessible, create custom keyboard shortcuts, and create highly detailed and structured templates that allow you to maintain consistency over all of their drawings.

    A good first guide to VW 10

    Much better than the documentation that comes with the software. It is still very basic stuff!
