Up and Running with AutoCAD 2011: 2D Drawing and Modeling
Get “Up and Running” with AutoCAD using Gindis’ combination of step-by-step instruction, examples, and insightful explanations. The emphasis from the beginning is on core concepts and practical application of AutoCAD in Architecture, Engineering and Design. Equally useful in instructor-led classroom training or self-study, the book is written with the student in mind by a long time AutoCAD user and instructor, based on what works in the industry and the classroom.
Strips away complexities, both real and perceived and reduces AutoCAD to easy-to-understand basic concepts.
Explains “why” something is done, not just “how”: the theory behind each concept or command is discussed prior to engaging AutoCAD, so the student has a clear idea of what they are attempting to do.
All basic commands are documented step-by-step: what the student types in and how AutoCAD responds is spelled out in discrete and clear steps with numerous screen shots.
Extensive supporting graphics (screen shots) and a summary with a self-test section and topic specific drawing exercises are included at the end of each chapter. Additional practice is gained through projects that the students work on as they progress through the chapters.
Also available in a comprehensive volume that includes coverage of 3D drawing and modeling in AutoCad. ISBN for comprehensive volume is 978-0-12-375717-3

AutoCAD: Secrets Every User Should Know
Let's face it... I have read just about every book that I could on AutoCAD over the years and thought that there was nothing new under the sun. Well... I stand corrected. Dan Abbott has created a MUST READ book that you need to add to your book shelf.
AutoCAD Secrets is a refreshing change from the usual presentation of AutoCAD information, tips and tricks that is found in most of the book written. He leaves no stone unturned in his attempt to tell you just about everything you need to know from basic to very advanced topics.
The eleven chapters of info starts off with a great chapter on AutoCAD productivity. Every topic was discussed in plain English and directly to the point (my kind of guy!). He covers the unspoken "boot camp" level principles and best practices of CAD with an in depth look at each topic. As I read it - I discovered nuggets of gold that renewed my enthusiasm for "common sense" CAD. (see my blog on this topic). He covers the foundational precepts and practices of sound file creation and data input. As I read I kept wondering - "Is he going to mention this or that?" and sure enough, there it was. The bottom line guidelines that the whole world needs to be reminded of. Chapter One alone is worth the price of the book.
He continues in chapters covering the management of your files, customization issues, graphic standards, and more. He reviews the basics of Paper Space and Model Space, what goes where and offers sidebar tips at every turn of the page.
Covering the basics is just the starting point for him to launch into the advanced topics. There is a complete LISP programming class that is presented in logical steps for all to use. Plus there is actual full working code in the book - just type it in and use it. Or better yet the book tells you where to go online to get the code. It's like getting two books in one, plus online resources. He finishes up with 3D topics and finally AutoCAD Puzzlers.
AutoCAD Puzzlers is a compilation of real world problems and stumpers (he got me on quite a few). Each taken from real questions from the many interactions he has had with students and users. These Puzzlers are often the submittal busters that we all face at crunch time. He presents them as questions and then provides the answer at the end of the book. Thirty Five of the toughest questions and weird behaviors (and the answers to them all).
This ranks very very high on my list of must have books. I applaud him for his succinct language, honest approach and real world emphasis.Forget the new Harry Potter novel... Go buy this book!--Review by Mark Kiker, Editor, CADD Manager (www.caddmanager.com)
I've been using AutoCAD for 22 years, and have written a hundred books on the subject. I reviewed many CAD books back in the days when book reviews were common in CAD publications; some were innovative, others were just sad. But for nearly a decade, it's been mostly silence on the book review front.
Then earlier in the summer, a book arrived in the mail from Sybex: 'AutoCAD Secrets Every User Should Know' by Dan Abbott. Reading it, I got excited: here's a book for every AutoCAD user, even old-timers like me.
This book's conversational tone makes for easy reading. But you won't want to read it through. It's too overwhelming with one useful tip after another after another. I suggest reading a couple of pages a day, marking items with a yellow highlighter. Such as these tips:
You can use wildcards in the Rename dialog box.
Use Ctrl+R to find viewports that the mouse cursor cannot.
Use Lengthen to extend an arc to a specific length.
Worthwhile for the cost to order from Amazon.com. Good job, Mr Abbott!-- Book Review by Ralph Grabowski, upFront.eZine (upfrontezine.com)
