"Architectural Drawing Course" is a very inforamtive book and easy to follow. Filled with great images, exercises and technical tips. I highly recommended to all freshmen and upper-class students who want to practice their drawing and modeling skills, or want to get better at hand-drafting and sketching.

Many architectural studio classes are taught without a specific textbook (not counting the reading of architectural classics). This could be that missing textbook. It is a broad yet specific syllabus of all things studio. While seeming a bit advanced for high school time limits, it certainly is worthy of college and graduate school courses.

Excellent book... covers all aspects of the architectural profession. All design projects will enhance your creative tools and give you a broad overview of the profession. Includes suggested websites and books. For me, well worth the o\purchase price.

I read this book in one day and have gone back through to complete the assignments and find the recommended additional reads which I found to be very helpful. Overall I am so pleased with this book. The way the information in conveyed is clear and precise. I will look out for addition architectural reads from this author.

Format: Paperback
Great book but not into detail. In fact it seems like they are just writing the book for the sake of writing a book. Didn't feel like it was detailed enough lacked illustrations and description.
Went more into the history of architects
Wouldn't recommend if u want to learn something seriously but if u are just in need to increase your library I guess it's ok

Informative - gave me an insight into the things I will need to know as I get started. I am in the "visual" stage right now and working on my sketching and pencil compositions. Taking as much geometry & Art as I can in school too! Decent book, shows enough examples to give one an understanding of the basics and vocabulary.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are some good architectural concepts to learn in this book, and some great drawings/examples. But the print is very small throughout the book making it difficult to read. Some of the print is gray instead of black making it even more difficult to read. If that isn't enough, the pages are shiny - almost like a magazine - making it even more difficult to read. This is not what I was looking for. I would recommend making the book larger in order to make the print readable.
