Title: AutoCAD 2000: No Experience Required
Publisher: Sybex Inc
Authors: David Frey
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Instructive but wordy


Pluses: A good self teaching book. With no previous Autocad experience I now feel confident that I can do basic 2-d drawings. The book got me to accomplish what I wanted, to learn basic Autocad, so basically a good recommendation. The pace was a contributator to confidence building.
Minuses: It could be written with a third to half less wordiness, the author drags out the instructions and basic Windows operations too much. I feel I should have been able to do the basic drawing in much less text.
Chapter 7 was very boring and took forever to get through with very little return for the time spent.
And the book only covers an single architectural design.
I would like to see other mechanical design example walk-throughs added with shorter text descriptions. More to-the-point.
Also it is difficult to find exactly where you learned something when you want to go back and refresh yourself, mainly because of the wordiness.

Very good but...


I loved this book, but the pictures at the first chapter, with a linux box screen running telnet session, is very little and dark, I can`t read the text inside de screen... is impossible to see what is writted in it... it is blur, the black ink invaded the letters.

The Material is here, but know the chapter review questions


the is so much material in this book it can be a bit overwhelming for someone not working in the industry, and just getting started. I found the Questions on the practice test on the CD and after each chapter in the book extremely valuable. I recommend using this book, thoroughly reading the chapters and constantly going over the practice questions before writing the exam. this method should allow you to pass the first time. I passed with 91% on my first try, I did use the exam notes by the same author, and the exam prep by exam cram. In hindsight, I really think this is the only book you need.
