The AutoCAD® 2019: Essentials course is designed for those using AutoCAD® 2019 with a Windows operating system. This learning guide is not designed for the AutoCAD for Mac software. The objective of AutoCAD® 2019: Essentials is to enable you to create, modify, and work with a 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software. Even at this fundamental level, the AutoCAD software is one of the most sophisticated computer applications that you are likely to encounter. Therefore, learning to use it can be challenging. This course covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools.
