Harnessing AutoCAD 2009 continues in the tradition of previous editions by providing the widest selection of discipline-specific exercises and projects for learning how to use today's leading desktop design and drawing software. This widely used resource contains all the latest functionality, including extensively illustrated examples of "prompt-response" sequences, whereby certain commands prompt users for additional information, such as coordinates or dimensions, to complete a function. The companion Exercise Manual has also been updated and is included in its entirety on the CD-Rom in the back of the book. The manual features problems in complete project format for practicing concepts and commands learned in a chapter or section as well as for testing single concepts and commands. This complete package contains a wealth of information and practical knowledge for both the novice and the advanced user.
