The main purpose of this book is to provide civil engineering students with a clear presentation of the theory of engineering graphics and the use of AutoCAD 2013. Each chapter starts with the chapter objectives followed by the introduction. The contents of each chapter are organized into well-defined sections that contain step-by-step instructions to carry out the AutoCAD commands. The drawings shown in this book are created using AutoCAD 2013 and Paint software.

Several improvements have been made to this edition. An index has been added and one of the chapters has been partitioned into two chapters, hence the twenty two chapters. Chapter chapter 19, 'Suggested In-Class Activities', has been improved and provides in-class activities (or labs). For some of the initial ICAs, it explains the drawing with the help of step-by-step instruction. Also, new problems have been added to the homework s chapter. Furthermore, the contents and the drawings of every chapter are improved.

Each chapter starts with the chapter objectives followed by the introduction. The bulleted objectives provide a general overview of the material covered. The contents of each chapter are organized into well-defined sections that contain detailed step-by-step instructions with graphical illustrations to carry out the AutoCAD commands.

This book has bee categorized and ordered into nine parts: Introduction to AutoCAD 2013 Use of AutoCAD in land survey data plotting The use of AutoCAD in hydrology Transportation engineering and AutoCAD AutoCAD and architecture technology Introduction to working drawing Suggested drawing problems Bibliography Index

Great buy for college course

Three quarters of the book develop the knowledge of Autocad , based on classic interface (on a 2013 version!), it's not bad if you are a begginer, but if you just need a full AutoCAD Civil Engineering applications book, this isn't exactly that kind lecture.

The title states this book is an introduction to AutoCAD. It explains quite well the basic commands in AutoCAD from a beginning viewpoint. It has some nice background information from a Civil Engineering point of view as well. Some of the extra exercises in the back of the book are rather pointless as they are just random shapes that do not relate to Civil Engineering in any way.
