Instructor Guide

An Instructor Guide provides you with all that you need to teach the training course. It contains all the same instructional content as a Learning Guide, along with  the answers to the chapter review questions, timing suggestions to help you in delivering various sections of the course, and instructor presentation files that complement the guide.

The Instructor Guide format is new for ASCENT with the 2019 software release. As was previously done, you will no longer be receiving any additional downloaded pdf documents containing our Instructor Tools. All information is included in the Instructor Guide and you are no longer required to purchase a separate copy of the Learning Guide.

AutoCAD 2019: Essentials (Metric Units)

Total number of pages: 530
Total Hours: 24

Autodesk Authorized Publisher

The AutoCAD® 2019: Essentials learning guide 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 guide 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. 

More advanced tools are introduced throughout the guide. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to show the most essential tools and concepts, such as:

  • Understanding the AutoCAD workspace and user interface.
  • Using basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools.
  • Organizing drawing objects on layers.
  • Using reusable symbols (blocks).
  • Preparing a layout to be plotted.
  • Adding text, hatching, and dimensions.

The AutoCAD® 2019: Essentials guide is not recommended for users that have completed the AutoCAD® 2019: Fundamentals guide, because Essentials contains the same content.

Prerequisites:
  • Access to the 2019 version of the software. The practices and files included with this guide might not be compatible with prior versions.
  • A working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology.
  • A working knowledge of your operating system.
