This book provides comprehensive coverage of Autodesk's Architectural Desktop. This is the best book I have found for Architectural Desktop training. The text provides you with easy to read and follow tools and commands needed to create complete sets of construction documents for residential and commercial applications. Screen displays and illustrations accompanying the discussion of every topic clearly demonstrate the commands and topics. Exercises are provided throughout and allow you to practice what you are learning. Each chapter has questions that give you an opportunity to review what you have learned. Learning objectives begin each chapter. There is a great feature called Field Notes that give a variety of professional tips, advanced applications, and additional instruction throughout the book. The projects provided on CD are difficult to read, but the in-text exercises are enough to learn Architectural Desktop.

CD included , (but not meant for exercises!)
Forget my previous comments of yesterday made in a fit of frustration. I have discovered that the .dwg files used during the exercises are in fact created by yourself as you go through the book. Duh. The PDF files are useful in their own right. It's a good book! Now where was I... Chapter 2

Where are the drawing files on the CD ROM?
I have a problem with this book:
The copy I received came with a CD ROM. Throughout the book are exercises which begin with opening a named drawing eg EX2-1.dwg (presumably from the CD). However, the entire contents of the CD I received are PDF files- not a .dwg file to be found. Not much use for trying to complete exercises, or (am I missing something??) and I agree with a previous reviewer, extremely frustrating!
Other than that, if I could only open some of those drawings that keep cropping up throughout the book, and complete the exercises, it would probably be a very useful book. A copy of the proper CD would be appreciated.
