Just what I needed
In this ever changing job maket it is good to be worinig on the resume at all times this was a good tool

Decent starting point for transition to V5
Making the switch over to V5 is a real pain, especially if you're a busy v4 engineer. Honestly, the best thing is to watch a few v5 video tutorials every day so you don't have to go thru the agony of a book. There's a beginner tutorial that I found helpful. Regardless, this book is task-based and spends a helpful bit of time talking about "making the transition." It will give a beginner an overview of the workbenches, so I'd say it's a good starting point. Here's that video tutorial link - CATIA V5 Video Tutorial CD ROM- Quickstart

Helpful and Informative
My company is currently working on a major project with the author's company. My department is transitioning over to CATIA V5 from a different design software and we are using this book as our training manual. The graphics are good.

Too much fluff, not enough substance
Readers of this book will not be prepared to use Catia in a professional environment. Mr. Karam lacks practical knowledge of his subject, and relies on his co-author to write the majority of this work. Mr. Karam has been using a rival CAD program for over a decade, and is a Catia beginner himself. Those looking to learn Catia are better served elsewhere.
