Format: Paperback
"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.

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.

I wish I owned this book eons ago. Very easy to follow and gain ideas from. It's very expressive in imagery and I couldn't ask for better representations of basic presentation pieces on a more advanced level.

This is an elementary introduction to the architectural process -- just what I was looking for to help me with perspective and skill in my art work. Mo Zell: she is great putting the straight-forward routine down.

The layout is simple and easy to understand and use.

Thank you Ms. Zell.
