It acts like an expert's cheat sheet, but much better. AutoCAD Pocket Reference is idyllic for modern practitioners in the field. It is also an excellent resource for students, teachers and AutoCAD users on the go. This reference text provides a swift and simple refresh for occasional or everyday use.
