    Reference books: AutoCAD 2010 Bible by Ellen Finkelstein or George Omura's book AutoCAD 2010 and AutoCAD LT 2010. You should be able to find both at a good discount since we are talking 2010 versus 2012.
    Thank you for the names on books,

    I will be getting back with you on this one,

    I have start working with project HVAC, but first I need to read more on auto cad,
    I wish I had some one close to work with. I'm slow but I'm going to do everything I can to understand this program. I wish when I call my school they would not get upset because I ask a lot of question, on this program,

    For what you are paying they should not be getting upset.

    You'll find the HVAC project challenging as well. There are images posted on that project too here at CADTutor.

    I do realize you have to get them done. What concerns me is that there appears to be no basic AutoCAD instruction prior to starting these projects. Am I correct?

    My personal opinion is the Penn Foster should have a basic "how to" section of their studies to introduce newbies to AutoCAD. Then they can flesh out what is covered using the projects which should, in theory, build upon the basics and introduce you to new ways of doing things and new commands. I pity the person who knows nothing of surveying, and bearings, etc. or HVAC ductwork and transitions and they have to learn the terminology while at the same time trying to master AutoCAD. For those without a ready source of help the challenge can be daunting.
