How To master AutoCAD well enough to become a Certified User through Certiport:

Understanding the User Interface and Menu systems

1.  Apply Basic Drawing Skills in AutoCAD

    A.  Create Selection Sets  (dragging the mouse from left to right you get a blue window, that has to completely encompass everything thing you want to select.  If you drag the mouse right to left you get a green crossing window.  If you select WP or CP you can draw irregular shapes around or across your selections.)

    B.  Use Coordinate Systems (Absolute, Polar, and Relative)

    C.  Use Dynamic Input, Direct Distance, and Shortcut Menus

    D.  Use Inquiry Commands ( List, Dist, Area, etc.)  Right click on an object and select the properties tab.  This will tell you area, perimeter, etc.

2.  Draw Objects

    A.  Draw LInes and Rectangles

    B.  Draw Circles, Arcs, and Polygons

    C.  Draw Polylines with different widths and arcs.

3.  Draw with Accuracy

    A.  Works with Grid and Snap

    B.  Use Object-Snap Tracking

   C.  Use Coordinate Systems to Draw

4.  Modify Objects

    A.  Move and Copy Objects

    B.  Rotate and Scale Objects

    C.  Create and Use Polar, Path, and Rectangular Array

    D.  Trim and Extend Objects

    E.  Offset Objects

    F.  Mirror Objects

    G.  Use Grip Editing

    H.  Fillet and Chamfer Objects

    I. Scale an object.   If you divide the size you want with the existing size, you will have the correct scale factor.   So if a box is 12.4321 inches wide and you want it to   be 13, you will divide 13 by 12.4321 and get the scale factor of 1.0456801345 and that will make the box exactly 13" wide.

   J.   Use the JOIN command to combine a series of polylines so you use them as a boundary to explode, hatch, or to find the area.

5.  Use Additional Drawing Techniques

    A.  Draw and Edit Polylines

    B.  Apply Hathces and Gradients

6. Organize Objects

    A.  Change Object Properties

    B.  Alter Layer Assignments for Objects

    C.  Control Layer Visibility

7.  Create and Reuse Existing Content (Blocks)

    A. Create  Blocks on different layers.

    B.  Insert a blocks on different layers that have different linetypes and colors.

8.  Annotate Drawings

    A.  Add and Modify Text

   B.  Use Dimensions

9.  Layouts and Printing

    A. Set Printing/Plotting Options by window, display, limits, extents.

10.  Learn to set up multi-view drawings in the paper space with text and dim.

Learn the different ICONS for the commands.
