AutoCAD® Pocket Reference, 8th Edition


Cheryl R. Shrock and Steve Heather




Everyone needs a refresher sometimes. The 8th edition of the AutoCAD® Pocket Reference provides easy access to everyday information needed by AutoCAD users, including concepts, how-to, and fundamental commands.  The pictures, explanations, and index are unparalleled by other references, as are the price and size.  This 8th edition has been improved with the inclusion of both inch and metric measurements throughout to appeal to a more global audience.  And now, with the inclusion of special "CAD-tips throughout, this is the perfect "cheat sheet" reference, written by two of the foremost AutoCAD® expert teachers.




  • All exercises will now include metric equivalents alongside the original imperial measurements.
  • “Drawing Compare” and “Shared Views,” making working with clients and 3rd parties infinitely easier.
  • New “CAD Tips” scattered throughout the book, providing shortcuts and suggestions from our expert author.
  • Additional new features being released by AutoCAD to beta testers. 

Cheryl Shrock is a retired Professor and Chairperson of Computer Aided Design at Orange Coast College in California. The AutoCAD Exercise Workbooks are the result of both her teaching skills and her industry experience. She also is an Autodesk® registered author.


Steve Heather has more than 30 years of experience as a practicing mechanical engineer, and has taught AutoCAD to engineering and architectural students at the college level. He is a Beta Tester for Autodesk®, testing the latest AutoCAD software, and a member of the AutoCAD® Customer Council.
