Editorial Reviews
This unique text presents a thorough introduction to Mastercam Mill for students with little or no prior experience. It can be used in virtually any educational setting -- from four-year engineering schools to community colleges and voc/tech schools to industrial training centers -- and will also serve as a reliable reference for on-the-job use or as a self-study manual. The award-winning authors have carefully arranged the contents in a clear and logical sequence and have used many hundreds of visuals instead of wordy explanations. An enclosed CD contains Mastercam Demo V. 9 and also includes examples and exercises from the text for student practice. Learning Mastercam Mill Step by Step is sure to become a valuable resource for anyone learning or using Mastercam Mill — overwhelmingly, the leading software of its type in industry.

Excellent for cad/cam students! 5 star cnc-book
I must agree with the other reviewers. The authors have managed to produce an excellent title that will help all of us cnc novices. The diagrams, instructions, as well as the included cd made for an excellent hands-on experience. I would strongly recommend purchasing this book from a cncbookstore. Thank you for this great manual, now I have a strong grasp of mastercam.

easy to follow, & informative but has a few 'typos' in it--also I couldn't get the tool library to save right.

Worthwile text on Mastercam
It is very difficult to write a text suitable for tecnical
school and college undergraduate level at the same time.
The authors have accomplished this.
With this text you can begin learning to program in Mastercam
from the first chapter.
The CD included makes familarization work without the expense
of buying the full program.

good but basic
As a conplete novice I found this book very useful.I liked the note like style of the writing and found the general setup information time saving.

Learning Mastercam Mill Step by Step
This is an excellent book. It is very easy to understand but it spend 4 chapters to teach how to make a drawings, few minor mistakes but it is critical to new user (you got lost and you need read again and again to understand it was a mistake),and few exercises we can not do it because of the demo disk. I still can follow through whole book even the mistakes and/or I can not do the exercises.

Most of us use other professional cad software. I will recommend the author concentrate how to convert other CAD software, how to rotate or translate the axis, and do the measurement on the converted drawings.

I recommend you read this book first if you are new to MasterCam like me.

I am not a machinest and I learning this just to see I can produce G code for machining. I don't know which book I should read after. Any recommendation?
