I couldn't ask for better I was just starting out with CAD at work and needed a book to teach me AutoCAD. I couldn't have asked for a better one! This book explained a topic/tool thoroughly, but then it literally walked me through how to use it (One Step at a Time). (There is even a CD with video demonstrations of many of the exercises.) After that, the author provided several exercises for me to work on my own (from simple to challenging). I feel very comfortable working in two-dimensional CAD now and have produced several client-ready drawings. I even got a raise. The best - that says it all A Customer I've taught AutoCAD for over ten years now - piecing together bits and pieces from one book and another. But no book ever covered the subject as well as the One Step at a Time series. With Sykes' 2002 book, I can cover both basic and intermediate classes. With his 3D book, I can complete my student's training in the same easy style they've become accustomed to.Good job, Sykes! Keep it up!. "Pleasantly Surprised!" according to A Customer. I had to learn AutoCad in a crunch and had no previous experience, this book is written in very easy to follow instructions. The exercises are easy to follow and there's a wealth of knowledge between those pages!Thanks Mr. Sykes for this excellent teaching tool.
