    About Our PDF eBooks

    All of our ebooks are in PDF format, and can be read easily on-screen with the free Acrobat Reader -- or printed on standard 8.5x"11 paper. We deliver the PDF files by email, usually the same day. You may also order them on CD for an extra $5.00. You may pay by cheque, money order, or by PayPal. Bulk purchase pricing available.

    Our ebooks are excellent for classrooms. The cost is lower and the quality is higher than most other textbooks.

    Remember, it's not cool to steal  You can make a backup copy of the PDF file, and print out one copy on paper. After that, you need to pay us for the extra copies; we provide a generous 40% discount. Paying for extra copies is worthwhile to you (after all, you made the extra copies!) and compensates the author's time for researching and writing these ebooks.

    * About Mini-eBooks

    Fewer pages = lower price. Our PDF mini-ebooks allow you to get up-to-date with the primary new customization features in AutoCAD at a lower price than purchasing our full-size ebooks.  Mini-ebooks describe how to use specific features of AutoCAD 2006 through 2010, and are identified by the tag, "A mini-ebook."

    Some mini-ebooks are based verbatim on chapters from Tailoring AutoCAD 2006 through 2010. If you have one of these ebooks, you don't need to purchase any of the mini ones. These are identified noted by the helpful warning, "Do not purchase this ebook if you have Tailoring AutoCAD."
