This site provides great 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 2010, but are adapted to other versions like the new 2015 (differences are noted in the text).
The lesson format was used in my CAD classes I have been teaching
previously. Please note that these lessons are for private, individual use as well as public schools. Tutorials for 2008 are available here.
This is the BEST place to learn AutoCAD for free (and better than most paid courses)
The advantage to these lessons is that they teach the

Tutorials, Videos and Quizzes help you learn.
AutoCAD is a complex program and learning it an organized fashion will help you progress faster. That is my approach in these tutorials.
If you do not have a copy of AutoCAD, you can download a 30 day evaluation copy from Autodesk. Follow this link, or go directly to their website. You will be downloading AutoCAD 2014 and it will work fine with these tutorials. You can also try other CAD programs like ZWCAD, which are less expensive alternatives.
Here are complete lessons divided into 4 levels of learning. Each
Level is one section that builds on the previous. Clicking on
the lesson number below will take you to that lesson.
Each lesson also has its own quiz and each level has a combined
Many lessons have videos with narration to explain in detail some of the concepts. To view these videos, you may need the Adobe Flash player for your browser (videos should work fine in most browsers and devices).
