It's best for learning the history of drafting and manual drafting ...
By Amazon Customer
I needed this for a class where I learned SolidWorks 2016. This book is very generic when it comes to teaching software, offering little to no help, then again, this edition is REALLY dated. It's best for learning the history of drafting and manual drafting techniques. Obviously, it's very dry and boring.

A plethora of information, and a good resource after you take class.
By Avid Buyer
This is an excellent book for learning design, CAD stuff, dimensioning, tolerancing, and everything in between. My teacher chose this book because it is such a wealth of information. The writing in this book is also reader friendly. A good reference after you finish the classes the book is required for.
I'm holding onto this book even though I could get a decent amount of money if I were to resell.

Drafting student 101
According to my husband this is the quintessential, only, bible for digital drafting and design students. He relies on it constantly.
