This book was required for my Engineering Graphics class. I took this class as an independent study course, which made me a little nervous as it was TRULY independent. I never met with the instructor, although I could email if I got stuck. Thanks to this book, I never had to ask any questions. I recommend this book for anyone who is either just learning AutoCad, or anyone who is already comfortable with the software but needs to work on design standards.
My only complaint is that the binding completely came apart from the cover within 3 weeks of delivery. Because I rented the book instead of purchasing it, I just hope I don't get charged. When I received the book, it had a lot of writing in it, although all of it was in fairly light pencil.
