    4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Tutorial for ProE August 21, 2010
    Verified Purchase
    I purchase this book to help me relearn Pro Engineering. It has been almost two years since I have used ProE (or any other 3D modeling software) and I was very rusty. Before this book, I taken a class to used ProE Wildfire 3 from my college as an engineer. The most useful feature of this book was the step by step examples in each chapter. There are about three examples in each chapter. For the most part, the step by step example was easy to follow but I did find some difficulty using the more advance modeling tools. I can say that this book help me develop the skills necessary to perform my job. Unfortunately, this book does not cover some of the more advance modeling technique, but it is a great book to learn the important modeling features in ProE.

    This tutorial for Pro Engineer was delivered early and is a good detailed book for any user. For any Pro Engineer user moving from an earlier version of this CAD program this book is recommended.
