Anyone recommend a good AutoCAD 2004 course?

I'd prefer to do one at a class on a couple of hours a week basis, but I'd consider an on-line course if there is a good one out there.

I work with clients *.dwg files at the moment, but I'd like to up my skills a little.

Most software is pretty intuitive, but I can't seem to jump into CAD as easily... either that or I'm getting old :?

we haven't been formaly introduced, but I do have the info you are searching for... ;) below you'll find the schools that provide autocad crash courses in Helsinki.

I hope this will do. As far as learning curve is concerned.. you are right.. it's not WYSIWYG but with a 50hours course you'll jump into production imediately.

Would you like private lessons? I don’t think with what you do Gavin you would need the full course. I can show you anything in 2D and a little bit of 3D. 6 years experience as the engineer department manager.

I think that the best way to learn it is either making exercies from ACAD books, either working directly in it and don't hesitate to call the help whenever you need it. I never took any lesson, but I learned it quite ok this way, at least I know every tools that make my work easier and even more. Also I started to program simple functions in AutoLisp (built-in programming language).

Thanks all for your info and advice :D

My problem, of course is that I'm out here in the sticks, 130Km from Helsinki.

I was hopeing to find something local, but not much luck so far. I suppose my best option now is to try and find an on-line course, or just splash out on a book, and knuckle down to it myself...
