What’s in the course

The course is made with a beginner in mind, so all the topics start from scratch and have been explained in detail. This course is primarily made with AutoCAD 2018 but it includes all the new features of 2019 as well as 2020 version.

The course lessons are mostly project-oriented and most of the tools and commands are taught with their real-world applications. Each section ends with a practical question which is related to the topics taught in the section and students are encouraged to answer the questions before moving further.

This course is also great for users preparing for the AutoCAD certified user as well as certified professional exam. The topics of certification exam are marked with this symbol ֍ in the table of contents and it has been similarly highlighted in your course dashboard too.
