We listened when you spoke! This is the print version of our popular ebook for those who simply have to have something to carry around with them! But print and ebook are fully compatible with each other (same page numbering and content) so you can use either (or both) in the same classroom! What are the differences? * Well, the printed book costs more (printing and shipping costs really add up!) * Printed texts are more portable (although heavier than their digital counterparts) * The printed version is black and white. But what about the text? * We still have the shaded boxes with useful tips and tricks for making your AutoCAD experience easier (and more fun!) * Tim's writing style is as engaging as always - and as friendly as always! * We still provide dozens of base drawings to make your exercises move as quickly as possible while allowing you to concentrate on the subject at hand. -- thousands of fully updated graphics! -- hundreds of step-by-step exercises! -- and yes, we've kept the popular three-column approach for our exercises showing any tools that'll make the exercise easier, the command sequence required to accomplish a task, and a steps column to explain what to do and how to do it! * We've completely updated our text to meet the requirements of AutoCAD 2005 - including new chapters to help you get acquainted with tables, fields and sheet sets. * We still provide a web-based, fully printable review/test question bank of over 1000 questions (and their answers) absolutely free! * And we provide web-access to easily printable copies of the review questions and appendices for your student's notebooks - also absolutely free! Part I includes the following chapters: -- The Setup -- Drawing Basics: Lines and Coordinates -- Drawing Aides (The Cartesian Coordinate System, Ortho, Snap, Tracking, Grid, etc.) -- Display Controls and Basic Text -- Geometric Shapes Other Than Lines and Rectangles (circles, arcs, polygons, etc.) -- Adding Flavor to Your Drawing with Layers (layers, colors, linetypes, etc.) -- Editing Your Drawing (a host of basic editing tools) -- More Complex Lines - Polylines -- More Editing Tools! -- Some Useful Drawing Tricks (some cool commands, filters, and object selection methods)
