"A Tutorial Guide to AutoCAD 2006" provides a step-by-step introduction to AutoCAD with commands taught "in context." In 15 clear and comprehensive sessions, author Shawna Lockhart guides readers through all the important commands and techniques in AutoCAD 2006, from 2D to solid modeling. In each lesson, the author provides step-by-step instructions with frequent illustrations showing exactly what appears on the AutoCAD screen. Later, individual steps are no longer provided, and readers are asked to apply what they've learned by completing sequences on their own. Carefully developed pedagogy reinforces this cumulative-learning approach and supports readers in becoming skilled AutoCAD users.
