TESTIMONIAL:
"This tutorial is awesome! I've been trying to learn ADT on my own, and with some incorrect advice from others trying to learn on their own. My frustration has completely subsided and I have started a new project with confidence and ease. It took me about a day and a half to get through the 'beginner' portion of the DVD and now I'm actually building an intelligent set of dwgs. With the DVD, if I forget how to do a command, I simply click on that lesson again and then I can move-on. I give it an A+."
