I bought this book to help in teaching my 18-year-old son (who is Russian) how to use Inventor. I'd bought two Dell M6700 workstations for us, but due to mine being bad out of the box, he was the only one with a computer who was able to use Inventor 2014 so far. I have not used the new version yet myself, so I could only assist, but I wasn't really needed that much. Despite the language difference, he was able to understand the book and the software almost completely on his own. We have a 3D printer, and he is now able to design and print objects with no assistance from me.

I believe this is the best way to learn, and you add skill as you practice. I was amazed at my son's progress, and can only attribute this to the effectiveness of the book's method. The only criticism I can make is that the illustrations, due to being black and white reproductions of screenshots, are not clear at all. Many times it was not clear what the shape was of the object being described, and difficult to determine where the dimension lines were pointing.

All-in-all, amazing results for the money! If it were me, I would make it into a CD, where the screenshots could actually be screenshots. Maybe include a CD with the book - it would easily be worth $10 more. 5 stars AND two thumbs up!

This book is good for someone like me who needs the pictures with the arrow for each step saying "Left click here", "Right click here", etc. I had used Inventor 10 years ago for a short while and needed to start over and learn it again. The reason I gave this a 4 star ranking instead of 5 was that I wished it had more chapters. It covered enough basics that I can probably go on by myself but I would have liked a chapter on sheet metal. Also I can see a number of commands that were not covered but I think they are just variations that can be picked up when you need them and go looking. For example the book covered splitting a model but not combining. However I can probably figure out the combining command when it is needed.

It appears that this book was written based on the 2014 Beta version or something similar since some of the descriptions and pictures did not exactly match the production 2014 release. However I was able to puzzle through the differences and figure out where I was supposed to be clicking.

I bought this book after being away from this program for 10 years, looking for something to refresh my memory and help me get more familiar with the new commands/layouts. The book is well written and does a good job at explaining procedures in a step-by-step fashion. However, I found this book to be a little on the basic side for me, but a student or another individual just being introduced to this program, this book would be great.

I teach a high school technology and engineering class, and this is a great resource for me to get ideas on how to teach some of the students that are slow on the take up of CAD knowledge. I like the example problems and have them work in a group using this one book as their resource when coming in for extra help. The step by step guide is written well, but some of the example problems have dimensions inside of the view and make it very hard to read or see the extension lines. I have had to write in the book to darken those lines and dimensions. I purchased other texts and those just don't give the same guidance as this book does.

Poor print quality, unclear design procedures. You're better off learning from online tutorials/videos!

The worst thing about this book is if you're assigned problems in the book, a lot of them are pretty awful to try to decypher. Measurements printed on dark shaded areas, poor indicators of which measurement is which, one-angle view of a part you're supposed to design..

Our engineering prof ended up writing out design sheets based on the parts in the book so we wouldn't have to deal with the frustration/lack of clarity.

To those with difficulty following lots of descriptive words, this book is an excellent alternative which is mostly screenshots and pretty much self-explained. It can be learnt in two days. The only con is that it is not as deep as I would like. But its pros far out-weight its cons consider I can learn much much faster with this book.

This text is not up to date. It does not describe the proper procedures to draw with the program and the pictures of the dialogue boxes do not accuratly reflect the process in the current 2014 version of inventor. I have been an AutoCAD user since R14 and am familiar with drafting software and commands. Thus far this text has not aided in utilizing inventor. Don't waste your money.
