This series of 3D CAD books is the best I have ever worked with. Every lesson starts with "Click on START PROGRAMS then click SOLIDWORKS 2008 64 BIT, then click NEW". They assume no prior knowledge, which makes every lesson screw- up free. Whenever I need to learn a program, I buy a used SDC book.

Parametric design? Huh? I was struggling trying to understand and apply the concept with SolidWorks 2007, then, of course SolidWorks 2008 was released. I came across this book and ordered it immediately, and I'm glad I did. A good overview of the parametric design model. But, most useful to me was the presentation of using Excel to automate design modifications and updates. After I read this book I was able to reduce the time required to produce models from two days to less than a few hours. I've read other SolidWorks books from the author but this one really opened my mind to the power of parametric design and SolidWorks.

I purchased a book from Randy a few years ago, "Parametric Modeling with Autodesk Inventor R11" when I was using Inventor. It was a good book. My company made the move to SolidWorks and I needed a book to learn and understand the command structure and interface.

The book is a big disappointment. Randy does back and forward using Inventor and SolidWorks terms and terminology. This is confusing to a new SolidWorks user. Let me state what is wrong with this book vs. what is right. There is no 3D Sketching, little or no information on loft, sweep, and revolve features, no detail information on top-down or bottom-up assembly, no Smart mates or toolbox components, no mechanical mates or advance mates. The drawing / part sections do not address dimXpert, importing annotations, etc and does a very poor job on explaining anything except the simplest views. Randy, how do you even apply the 3D drawing view tool within a view? System and document property setting are mainly passed by. He uses the same models from his inventor book.

I also noticed from the SolidWorks help screens, some of his pictures and commands are not updated for 2008. This is why I purchased the 2008 book, not the 2007 book.
