AutoCAD (R) 2004 : A Building Approach, Book 1: Learning the Basics
For introductory courses in AutoCAD (R). The three books cover one year's coursework in 2D drafting-one for each quarter, or one and one-half books per semester. This series is particularly appropriate for community and technical college programs. This three-volume series of texts provides a user-friendly, step-by-step approach to learning AutoCAD (R) 2004. Using a modularized approach that groups related commands and operations together, these books focus on teaching the most efficient method of operation that enables the user to quickly become a productive CAD operator. With real-world application assignments at each module's conclusion and a final project that a new CAD operator might be required to do in an actual employment situation at the end of each book, this series reinforces hands-on study so that students are fully equipped with the practical skills required to succeed in this field. Book 1 covers material from opening the AutoCAD (R) program for the very first time to being able to efficiently use the basic commands to set up, draw, and print drawings. Book 2 builds on these concepts and skills, and helps students proceed to making and dimensioning multiview drawings. Book 3 concludes the series by teaching students to make and use their own personal drawing template complete with title block, general notes, and bill of materials.
