Book Review: AutoCAD 2007 Bible (Cadalyst Daily Archive)

6 Oct, 2006 By: Sara Ferris

Comprehensive tome is a good resource for users getting familiar with AutoCAD or some of its new features

The AutoCAD 2007 and AutoCAD LT 2007 Bible by Ellen Finkelstein measures up to its name in volume, running 1,252 pages. To save you the trouble of lugging the book around, a nonprintable PDF version (almost 16MB) is included on the accompanying CD-ROM. An added bonus of the PDF version is that you can use Adobe Reader to search for and highlight specific words and phrases -- much easier than clicking back and forth from index to text.p>

The book is organized into eight sections, which are basically unchanged from the 2006 version of the book. Those new to AutoCAD can march through from beginning to end to gain a good, general foundation for using the software. The book would also make a handy desk reference for those who are inexperienced in certain areas or upgrading from older versions. What it doesn't offer is advice for experienced AutoCAD users seeking power-user tips or discipline-specific approaches.  Read more >>
