AutoCAD 2010 and AutoCAD LT 2010: No Experience Required
Completely updated on the latest releases of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT, this book provides you with the skills needed to work in AutoCAD immediately and a step-by-step tutorial teaches you all the basics so you can quickly achieve results when creating 2D and 3D technical drawings. You’ll look at dimensioning, external references, layouts and printing, and using 3D and move on to examining more advanced features such as grouping, elevations, hatches, and using text in drawings. The companion Web site contains project files, a bonus chapter on using the Internet with AutoCAD, an appendix on attributes, and another appendix on dynamic blocks.
Finally, someone gets it right!

I received a copy of "AutoCAD 2010 and AutoCAD LT 2010 NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED" on a Saturday and sat down with it and a free trial version of AutoCAD 2011 (a full working version and can be downloaded from Autodesk and used for 30 days) on Sunday.

I had zero cad experience prior to buying this book. After about 9 full days of use I finished the Autocad LT portion of the book and feel like I have a pretty good understanding of the Autocad Basics.
I would have given this book 5 stars, however; about half way through it appears the Author should have taken a break and gotten some sleep, or at least read and ran through the finished product before releasing the book. Some measurements are wrong, file name associations are off, and steps that can't be done in Autocad LT are not noted as being Autocad Only amongst a few other minor problems. This makes it very confusing, especially around chapter 13 or 14 when utilizing the layouts and sheets. These problems shouldn't be enough to keep you from buying the book though, and the mistakes actually present a challenge to test your skills.
I don't think this would be a good book for anyone with experience, but it is a great book for people like me with no previous... read more
