Pretty easy, overall.
This is a course designed as an overview of Auto CAD for various fields. You will learn the basic functions and commands of both 2D and 3D CAD. It's pretty basic but was very helpful especially if you are able to put in the time outside of class. There is no homework or tests, just projects that you work on during class time together. The most difficult part is trying to take notes and follow along simultaneously. You're on a pretty tight schedule so Mr. Moy cant always take the time to answer questions as thoroughly as I would have hoped. I've never used anything like this before but some of my classmates had so they were able to move ahead faster than I was. I would recommend this as a great intro to Auto CAD but it won't teach you specifics for your industry or go too in depth.
There is a civil project and a few architectural projects like an office building and then a test at the end. He uses the projects to teach you basic commands, create shapes and setting parameters for your drawings. The last 2 classes, he took us fully through the test together to make sure everyone had grasped the concepts he taught in class.

Advice for students:
I would recommend taking some time out of class to practice the concepts and formulate questions if you're newer to CAD. If you're familiar, this should be a breeze.
