Book Description

AUTOCAD TUTOR FOR ENGINEERING GRAPHICS: 2013 AND BEYOND is a thorough, practical guide featuring self-paced tutorials and a step-by-step approach to help you use and customize AutoCAD to achieve professional results. Tutorials follow traditional engineering drawing techniques and methods while guiding you from simple one-view engineering drawings to geometric constructions, multiview projections, section and auxiliary views, 3D solid modeling, and photorealistic rendering. This proven guide emphasizes skill development to enable you to confidently translate layouts, specifications, and calculations from engineers and architects into detailed drawings, maps, plans, and other documents necessary to create products. Detailed coverage of AutoCAD features and capabilities, along with a strong emphasis on mechanical exercises and practical engineering applications, make this trusted resource an ideal reference for both individual learning and professional use. In addition, extensive online material offers additional information and tools, including detailed updates provided regularly between major new releases of the AutoCAD software.

3Good tutorial book to start learning AutoCad
By Julie L
This is a good tutorial book for learning AutoCAD basics. The step-by-step instructions can be easy to follow, but some drawings are missing dimensions, you can, however, use other points to find some of them. On the more complicated parts, some of the instructions are also unclear, but with a little trial and error this helps you learn different techniques to get the geometry done. Over-all, it is a good starter book.

5Good Book
By D-man
Great book for self study. This book provides good hands on examples and drawings for you draw at the end of each chapter. I bought this as a supplement to the book that was required for the CAD class that I am taking - Harnessing AutoCAD 2013 and beyond. That book does not have any drawing for you to practice or examples for you to follow.
