Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"The AutoCAD Bible is an object lesson in good design, concise and helpful writing, and a near-genius level of organization ? Your book has been the single most significant factor in my successful mastering of a new skill—there is not a paragraph I would rewrite."

About the Author

Ellen Finkelstein learned AutoCAD in Israel, where she always got to pore over the manual because it was in English. After returning to the United States, she started consulting and teaching AutoCAD as well as other computer programs, including Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. She has also taught courses on Web writing and usability. Her Web site, www.ellenfinkelstein.com, contains tips and techniques for AutoCAD and PowerPoint, and she publishes a monthly AutoCAD Tips Newsletter. Ellen has written extensively on AutoCAD, including articles for Autodesk's Web site, such as three white papers on dynamic blocks, and features for AutoCAD’s Help system. She is also the editor of Inside AutoCAD, a monthly newsletter published by Eli Journals.
Ellen's first book was AutoCAD For Dummies Quick Reference. Since then, she has written books on Word, PowerPoint, OpenOffice.org (OpenOffice.org For Dummies), Flash (such as Flash 8 For Dummies), and Web technologies (for example, Syndicating Web Sites with RSS Feeds For Dummies). You're holding the seventh edition of this book, which previously appeared for AutoCAD releases 14, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2005, and 2006.

40 of 42 people found the following review helpful By John Matlock on August 4, 2006
Format: Paperback
When the publisher calles this book 'Bible' he means it. 1200+ pages on how to use the software. The back of the book says that this book is intended for 'Beginner to Intermediate' users. To be sure there is an introductory chapter at the beginning of the book might be enough for a beginner to get started with AutoCAD. But I'd recommend starting somewhere else, like say a 'For Dummies' book.

This is more of a reference book for the user looking to do something that he hasn't done before. As such it is well designed:

First there are a series of chapters organized in a logical manner with headings that actually make sense. Then under the chapter headings there are sub headings that further identify common tasks.

Second the index at the back of the book is 40 pages long, filled with small type where hopefully you can find nearly every subject. By having so many entries there are multiple entries for what you might be looking for.

All in all, this is one of those books you keep nearby when you are using the software.

This book will be informative for the beginner and a great reference for the intermediate. Do NOT buy this book if you have ever been formally trained in AutoCAD or have read any real books - just more of the SOS.

I just started to go through this book and it is amazing how easy it is to use. I'm just getting into CAD 2007 in college and this book is helping me to get extra practice of the ins and outs of CAD 2007. I showed this book to my teacher and she is going to buy a copy she said it is a great learing tool and refference book.

a good reference for experienced users. Of course Autocad is so diverse there is not such a thing as a complete reference. but this is one of two that I keep at hand all the time.

I purchased this book and received it within 10 days. The transaction was painless.

At the same time, I ordered 2 other AutoCAD books. I have not read any of the 3 from cover to cover(and I hope I'm never bored enough to consider doing so) but I have referenced this book quite often and have found it to be both informative and user-friendly. I use this as my primary reference book to teach myself AutoCAD 2007, ahead of AutoCAD for Dummies and AutoCAD Professional Tips and Techniques. I would categorize this book as a very good reference.
