Beginning AutoCAD 2013

This is the right book for users if they're new to AutoCAD or want to brush up on the basics, they're looking for a clear, no nonsense, easy-to-follow text, or they want to learn AutoCAD quickly and easily. All exercises print easily on a standard 8-1/2 X 11 printer. It is for use with the PC version of AutoCAD 2013 only. An AutoCAD 2013 30-Day Trial Version is included on the enclosed DVD. It is ideal for classroom instruction or as a self-study tutorial. It provides only what the user needs without all of the jargon. It includes 30 lessons with step by step instructions followed by exercises designed for practicing the commands learned within the lesson. Each lesson starts very simple and progresses to more complex. The approach taken is to familiarize users with the drawing commands first, and then teach users to create their own setup drawings. Each lesson is explained clearly and in a non-intimidating manner. It is totally updated for AutoCAD 2013 and 2013 LT including Autodesk Cloud, Online Collaboration, Command Line Options, Polyline Reverse Direction, and Layout Tab and Panels.
