1This book is completely useless for actually learning how to use AutoCAD
By Amazon Customer
This book is completely useless for actually learning how to use AutoCAD. It doesn't really teach you anything and leaves me searching google for the information that it should provide. You're better off just saving your money and using google/youtube to find help.
