This is the book for any new user wanting to learn SolidWorks
This is an excellent text book for any new user wanting to learn SolidWorks; either in a structured classroom environment or on their own. I've been using this book for the past three years at Great Western and I will say it is the best step-by-step SolidWorks book on the market. What's different and good about this book is that it combines the project base approach with clear illustrated screen shots. It is the only book that also provides a great multimedia CD to watch and learn.

The authors: assumes you know nothing about SolidWorks and are great about walking you through the steps with hundreds of illustrations and highlighted commands, even for those that have minimal computer skills to begin with.
