Yes - It's FREE!

This site provides great AutoCAD tutorials for new students of AutoCAD. They are designed to be as compatible with as many versions of AutoCAD as possible. They are based on AutoCAD 2016, but will apply to older versions. The lesson format was used in my CAD classes I have been teaching previously. Please note these lessons are for private, individual use as well as public K-12 schools. This is the BEST place to learn AutoCAD for free (and better than most paid courses).
