The Illustrated AutoCAD 2006 Quick Reference is the latest and greatest reference available for AutoCAD 2006. It provides a complete, up-to-date listing of commands, functions and system variables in one comprehensive text. The book is well-organized and a must-have for everyone from students to CAD managers.

The book lists all AutoCAD 2006 commands, functions and system variables in alphabetical order, and it gives a brief description of the item as well as any options that may apply. Changes and additions specific to AutoCAD 2006 are provided, as well as screenshots of modifications to the user interface. Lists are accurately cross-referenced, making the guide extremely useful.

Whether you are a seasoned AutoCAD user or new to the software, this book is the one text you must have. In fact, Autodesk should include The Illustrated AutoCAD 2006 Quick Reference with every copy of AutoCAD.
