AutoCAD® Mechanical 2012 Training Course

(now includes the AutoCAD 2012 Essentials Series)
A full-featured AutoCAD Mechanical training course covering beginner to advanced concepts, and everything in between, for Autodesk's AutoCAD Mechanical 2012. In 123 individual video tutorials and 8 hours of instructor-led training + over 200 video tutorials and 12+ hours of AutoCAD Essentials Training (which is included at no additional cost), Robert Stein provides comprehensive coverage of AutoCAD Mechanical. New users of the software will become familiar with the AutoCAD Mechanical interface, 2D and 3D drawing and editing features, content libraries, powerful annotation tools, intelligent objects, and much more. Experienced Mechanical users will discover commands to increase productivity and streamline your everyday tasks.

As a flexible CAD training solution, you can sort the lessons and progress from beginner to advanced topics; or just review seldom used commands and added functionality of new releases.

"I am probably one of your largest promoters... your product is a hundred times more informative than any [...] seminar or training session."
Dick Barath
