4Required School Textbook to Learn AutoCAD
By benjamin bannister
This book is an introduction to AutoCAD. It starts by introducing you to most of the buttons and their functions in AutoCAD. From there, it gives you exercises to practice those tools you just learned.

It starts off pretty simple by making basic shapes, but it gets more difficult as you progress by getting into tolerances and making you figure things out on your own. Every chapter builds on the previous chapter, but my professor had us jumping around based on what he thought we needed to know.

This was a required textbook for my AutoCAD I and II classes.
