AutoCAD 2014 Tutorial - First Level: 2D Fundamentals
This textbook contains a series of eleven tutorial style lessons designed to
introduce beginning CAD users to AutoCAD 2014. It takes a hands-on,
exercise-intensive approach to all the important 2D CAD techniques and concepts.
This text is also helpful to AutoCAD users upgrading from a previous release of
the software. The new improvements and key enhancements of the software are
incorporated into the lessons. The 2D-CAD techniques and concepts discussed in
this text are also designed to serve as the foundation to the more advanced
parametric feature-based CAD packages such as Autodesk Inventor.
The basic premise of this book is that the more designs you create using AutoCAD 2014, the better you learn the software. With this in mind, each lesson introduces a new set of commands and concepts, building on previous lessons. This book is intended to help readers establish a good basis for exploring and growing in the exciting field of Computer Aided Engineering.
AutoCAD 2014 Certified User Examination
The content of AutoCAD 2014 Tutorial - First Level: 2D Fundamentals covers the performance tasks that have been identified by Autodesk as being included on the AutoCAD 2014 Certified User Examination. Special reference guides show students where the performance tasks are covered in the book.
If you are teaching an introductory level AutoCAD course and you want to prepare your students for the AutoCAD 2014 Certified User Examination this is the only book that you need. If your students are not interested in the AutoCAD 2014 Certified User Examination they will still be studying the most important tools and techniques of AutoCAD as identified by Autodesk.

Each book comes bundled with a disc containing video presentations. These videos cover the first three chapters and selected end-of-chapter exercises from throughout the book. Students see the AutoCAD 2014 interface, menu picks, and models that are created while a voice overlay explains the design activities.
AutoCAD 2014 is not required to run the disc. Students, while at home, will become acquainted with the AutoCAD interface and design process.
