Numerous conceptual, modeling, drawing, dimensioning, and documentation exercises are provided throughout. For those who find the program puzzling, this book takes a common sense approach. It provides clear, concise CAD information because it is written by an architect and educator who uses the program in professional practice and who teaches the program to students.
