Overview

The Aubin Academy Master Series: AutoCAD MEP is a concise manual focused squarely on the rationale and practicality of the AutoCAD MEP process.

Pros: First 1/3 of book is dedicated to refreshing your skills on the "ribbon" as well as illustrating the differences in file structure versus a typical AutoCAD project. This section has you manipulating external references, creating constructs, views and sheets. Also covers use of the Project Browser and Navigator. Remainder of the book details specifics about using MEP, with chapters dedicated to each trade. This is where you learn the "nuts and bolts" of drawing duct, wiring, piping, etc. Lessons are fairly good, and generally illustrate the point fairly clearly. Cons: MEP screenshots are light gray and grainy, and some are difficult to see clearly This book covers the basics, but doesn't delve deeply into advanced topics. Leaves me with some unanswered questions. No index. Would be helpful for quickly finding a topic Some portions of the book are a bit difficult to understand. I've had to re-read some passages to determine exatly what the author is trying to convey A few of the lessons didn't appear to work properly (could be operator error, but it also illustrates that the author's instructions are not entirely clear)
