AutoCAD 2000i: An Introductory Course

Front Cover
Routledge, Sep 13, 2012 - Computers - 304 pages
The step-by-step instructions and clear explanations make the book ideal for courses with limited contact time, and for independent study. Numerous exercises throughout enable students to develop their own CAD skills as well as reinforcing their understanding of AutoCAD commands.

Ian Mawdsley has drawn on his own extensive teaching experience to produce material for use in a CAD suite where the lecturer will be supporting a number of students who are progressing at different rates. His book is the only AutoCAD resource available written with a real understanding of teaching requirements - a breath of fresh air for lecturers who have been working with hefty application manuals or superficial software guides.

This book has been carefully designed to meet the needs of AutoCAD courses run by universities, colleges and an increasing number of schools. Anyone who completes Ian Mawdsley's course will have gained a thorough grounding in 2D techniques and explored the basics of 3D work. The content of the course covers the requirements of the new City & Guilds 4351 scheme and the new Edexcel Advanced Award in AutoCAD (level 3).
