  1. Get up and running…the right way Even though I’ve been using Civil 3D for several years, this book helped me understand some of the basics of Civil 3D that I haven’t been using but should have been. I found the book to be a great stepping stone to the Mastering Civil 3D book. I especially recommend this book to surveyors for the detailed information provided on survey data, figures, points, point groups, surfaces, data shortcuts and parcels. The exercises are easy to follow and relevant.

  2. Great book for all civil 3D Users This book is great for civil techs, survey techs, engineers and even cad managers. Very user friendly. In this book you will learn the correct procedures and workflow for using the surveying/civil features and tools in civil 3d 2013. In addition, you will be provided data sets files for your practice drawings with some videos. With this book, you will get a better understanding of C3D styles and settings. Here are just a few items you will learn about in this book: profiles, new survey features, pipe networks, parcels and much more. For those firms/companies that don’t have no in-house training, this would be a great book to provide your new employees. So I highly recommend having this book at your desk for civil 3d users.
