Using a non-technical writing style and hands-on PROMPT/RESPONSE tutorial approach, it takes students step-by-step through the creation of all of the drawings necessary for an architectural project - from floor plans, and elevations, through power and lighting plans, to isometric and three-dimensional drawings. *Covering the latest version of AutoCAD, Release 14, using the Windows operating system, shows the new commands relating to raster images in AutoCAD drawings. *Uses a Computer PROMPT/User RESPONSE format that leads students through each new AutoCAD command - and that allows the text to be used as either a self-paced tutorial or in a lecture-lab situation, each drawing chapter contains from one to four exercises that introduce commands as they are used in a drawing.
