Learning Guides: Print Version

When you order a printed learning guide from the ASCENT eStore, they arrive spiral bound and ready to use. Each guide includes a link to access the training files for practice exercises. Applicable Autodesk guides also include Autodesk Certification Objectives as a helpful study aid for those who are preparing to take the Autodesk Professional Certification Exam.

In addition to being available through ASCENT's eStore, printed guides are also available through Amazon

(Note: learning guides ordered through Amazon are not spiral bound, but have ‘perfect’ binding, meaning the pages and cover are glued together at the spine).


Learning Guides: eBook Version

ASCENT eBooks contain the same content as our corresponding learning guides, providing users with a paper-free option to learning their chosen software. These electronic versions of our guides include full color images, hands-on exercises and downloadable practice files. eBooks can be downloaded on one computer and one mobile device, and include features such as the ability to make notes and highlights, and sync and share those notes with multiple users of the same eBook.

Keyword searches are available within the eBooks and users can choose their preferred layout for viewing the courseware. Same as our printed guides, eBooks are yours to keep once purchased.


Instructor Resources

Instructor Guides: Print and eBook Versions
(Available for Autodesk Version 2019 and newer)

Instructor Guides provide you with all you need to teach the training course. They contain all the same instructional content as a learning guide, plus answers to the chapter review questions and timing suggestions to help in delivering the course. Some also include instructor presentation files.

All the information you’ll need to instruct the course is included in the Instructor Guide- you do not need to purchase a separate copy of the Learning Guide.

Instructor Tools

Designed for use in conjunction with ASCENT learning guides, Instructor Tools are downloadable PDF files which contain timing suggestions for delivering the class and answers to the questions within the guide. Some Instructor Tools also include overhead PowerPoint presentation files.

Sold separately from the learning guides and eBooks, Instructor Tools are an ideal support tool for those teaching the software.



ASCENT offers the content from its learning guides bundled into convenient, online learning courses. Available through annual subscription, learners can complete fundamental through to advanced-level courses from any location with access to the Internet.

eLearning courses include several elements that appeal to multiple learning styles. With step-by-step procedures, hands-on practice exercises, and review questions to validate understanding, users have access to the latest versions of the key titles for each software product included in each bundle.
