"Sharing my industry and CAD knowledge has been the most rewarding experience of my career. Students come to learn AutoCAD in order to find employment or to upgrade their skills. Seeing them actually achieve their goals, and knowing I helped, is a real pleasure. If you read the lessons and do the exercises, I promise, you will not fail." -Cheryl Shrock  


"Both the Beginning and Advanced AutoCAD books are designed to give the user the skills needed to confidently use AutoCAD in a working environment. They cover all the fundamental 2D and 3D commands and user settings necessary to become a highly capable user of the software. Many schools and colleges now adopt these AutoCAD instructional books as their preferred method of teaching with consistently excellent results. Professionals using AutoCAD who seek to improve or refresh their skills also find these information-packed books to be helpful. -Steve Heather
