With a focus on fundamental skill development, AutoCAD Workskills for Success with AutoCAD 2011- Basics is designed around the "Draw-Modify-Dimension-Print" cycle and focuses on the drawing skills needed to produce 2 dimensional drawings. Taking a layered learning approach, it builds skills gradually rather than overwhelming readers immediately with numerous commands or procedures. Projects, assignments, examples and tutorials draw from the fields of architecture, mechanical engineering and civil engineering. Complete with an instructor’s resource disk and student companion website, the text emphasizes both knowledge and productivity as the means for being successful in the workplace.
