Lynda com AutoCAD 2009 Essential Training (Autocad 2009精华教程):
Lynda出品的AutoCAD 2009教程，Jeff Bartels主讲，共7小时课程。
AutoCAD 2009 sports cutting-edge features and a brand new interface, making it the perfect opportunity for those with no prior drafting experience to learn AutoCAD from the ground up. In AutoCAD 2009 Essential Training, Jeff Bartels gives a thorough explanation of the interface and explains the commands in the same order they would be encountered in a typical workflow. He discusses each concept using simple line work, and then applies it to a real-world example. The course is "industry neutral," meaning the skills and techniques can be applied to any drafting discipline: architectural, mechanical, civil, or design. Example files accompany the course.
AutoCAD 2009 软件整合了制图和可视化，加快了任务的执行，能够满足了个人用户的需求和偏好，能够更快地执行常见的 CAD 任务，更容易找到那些不常见的命令。新版本也能通过让用户在不需要软件编程的情况下自动操作制图从而进一步简化了制图任务，极大地提高了效率。

Jeff Bartels has been using AutoCAD professionally since the program was a DOS-based application. As the CAD manager of a civil engineering firm in Illinois, Jeff is responsible for the production and oversight of large-scale subdivision plans and construction drawings, and the installation and configuration of AutoCAD. He conducts weekly training workshops to ensure his CAD staff is current with the latest software.
Jeff is a faculty member at two different colleges, where he teaches advanced AutoCAD courses. He is known for always giving 110 percent in the classroom, as well as for his ability to make complex concepts easy to understand. He provides on-site AutoCAD training for several businesses and schools, and produces training materials to help high school and college instructors teach AutoCAD in their classrooms. Jeff is a regular instructor at the annual Illinois Drafting Educators Association conferences, where he consistently receives high marks for his seminars.
When Jeff isn't at work or in the classroom, he enjoys spending time at home with his family. He is desperately trying to stay ahead of his children in Guitar Hero.
