AutoCAD 2009 for Architects and Interior Designers is an exercise manual for interior design, architecture and building trade students who would like a simple, easy to understand, step by step guide that teaches AutoCAD 2-D. This text emphasizes how to draw interior drawings as well as architecture drawings, without sole reliance on the capabilities of AutoCAD. The text also includes several drawings that students can refer to as they work through the step-by-step tutorials.
- Icons and shortcuts are provided in the exercises manual to give students an effective way to learn commands through quick, easy to learn drawings.
- An explanation of commands, a margin element that lists the commands icon, command location in the AutoCAD structure and its shortcut.
- A set of reference drawings that can be used by students as they work their way throughout the book. These drawings are of finished architecture and interior designs to serve as a guide for students as they follow the step-by-step projects throughout the exercise manual.
- Commands are introduced only when they are needed to draw each exercise. This ensures that students are not overwhelmed by commands that are being used throughout the exercise.
- A series of drawings that are used as building blocks, provided in small steps, and all related to the exercises.
