    AutoCAD tutorials can be found here and in other locations on the Internet. A quick search with Google using the terms "autocad"+"tutorial" will bring up a number of them. These will most likely be general knowledge in content and not specific to architecture. For that I would recommend picking up a good after-market book such as AutoCAD 2009 No Experience Required. It covers, in step by step fashion, the drawing of a small cabin and comes with a link to the publisher's website for downloading drawing examples that are covered in the text.

    AutoCAD 2006-2007-2008 tutorials can be found here:

    The basics are the same although the lack of the Ribbon at the top might throw you off a bit.
