Right on!

I bought this for my brother-in-law who considers himself a computer geek. He said the book described him perfectly and thought it would be helpful for anyone having to lead this type of person. I thought he'd enjoy it because his job requires he have technical expertise as well as managerial skills. NPR's positive review of the book gave me the idea of buying it for him.

Not worth the money

The book is just plain horrible! It assumes WAY TOO MUCH! I am learning VB6 in school and this is the book that they are teaching us from. Many times throughout the book they give program examples using things that haven't even been covered yet. The exercises at the end of the chapters are very vague. The choice of color also is bad (brownish/red text) and makes for a poor reading experience. The tips and common programming errors sprinkled throughtout the chapters become annoying very quickly. My advice, pass on this one.

Mastering Autodesk Architectural Desktop

Good book, but it could be better. You have to think the deepest tough to figure out where is the beginning and or the end of many procedures. Try to figure out the best way to approach the creation on a Door Schedule in 2d, for example.Good luck

I can't wait for this to come out!

I've been watching Ben Heckendorn do this since his old Atari 2600 Portables site launched almost 6 years ago. It'll be awesome to finally know how to do everything he does yourself!
