SolidWorks 2013 Part II - Advanced Techniques

Front Cover
SDC Publications, Nov 12, 2012 - Computers - 688 pages

 SolidWorks 2013 Part II - Advanced Techniques picks up where SolidWorks 2013 Part I - Basic Tools leaves off. Its aim is to take you from an intermediate user with a basic understanding of SolidWorks and modeling techniques to an advanced user capable of creating complex models and able to use the advanced tools provided by SolidWorks. The text covers parts, surfaces, SimulationXpress, sheet metal, top-down assemblies and core and cavity molds.

Every lesson and exercise in this book was created based on real world projects. Each of these projects have been broken down and developed into easy and comprehensible steps for the reader. Furthermore, at the end of every chapter there are self test questionnaires to ensure that the reader has gained sufficient knowledge from each section before moving on to more advanced lessons. This book takes the approach that in order to understand SolidWorks, inside and out, the reader should create everything from the beginning and take it step by step.

Literally the worst textbook I have ever used. Paul Tran might be illiterate, and probably hasn't used solidworks before. I am starting to think he could be blind and or deceased.
I gave this 1 star because it has color pictures. Congratulations Paul, you aren't color blind!
