Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent resource for every AutoCAD MEP user. It assumes some basic AutoCAD back ground and builds on that with exercises and explanations of the more complicated tools available in AuotCAD MEP. It addresses the production process of a document set rather than commands so users are given real life examples to apply to their own work. The step by step exercises are clear, easy to understand and often illustrated for additional clarity. Mastering AutoCAD MEP 2010 is peppered with Notes, Tips, and Hints that are worth the price of the book by themselves. - Love it!

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By D. Atkins on February 1, 2010
Format: Paperback
For a book that is supposedly written for an advanced AutoCAD user - this book spends half of its content discussing simple concepts common to all versions of AutoCAD and neglects to cover any of the advanced topics in any real depth. Do you want to learn how to create an anchored pipe element? It doesn't tell you how. Want to know why that pretty MVPart looses it's connection to the pipe for seemingly no reason? It doesn't tell you. What to know what the difference is between Connection Diameter and Nominal Connection Size, then you should have developed the program yourself. How do you get a MEP Label element show up in a section? Even relatively simple concepts like printing feel tacked on. How do you define the plot order of the drawings? Not covered. Better than nothing, but not worth the price.

Bought the tutorials from AutoDESK for 2009 as well. This book is very well organized. It is the first non-AutoDESK book available for MEP. Very easy to follow and the authors are incredibly responsive and active on the AutoCAD forums. Being the first cut for such a program, I give this an "A" rating and hope that the few snags that are known will be corrected in future revisions.

This book is really helpful. I wish it would go in better detail sometimes about things, but that's the beauty of the internet these days to find more examples.

If you want to learn the basics of using MEP2010, this is a great book. It would be advisable that the user already have a decent knowledge of AutoCAD and at least a passing familiarity with building engineering systems to maximize on this book. It's also a handy enough reference to help you if you might be stalled on a real-world project.
