Here are links to a couple of training materials from very capable people that I know or have worked with over the years:
Rick Ellis has hit it out of the park again! I just recently finished going through Digging Into Civil 3D 2007 from cover to cover. This book and the accompanying datasets are GREAT assets for folks in need of introductory-level learning materials for Civil 3D 2007.
Rick tells me his advanced Civil 3D book will be out this fall. Keep an eye on his Web site for details. I’ll likely do a review of the advanced book after it hits the street.
I first came across vBooks a little over two years ago just prior to AU 2004 when old friend and mentor Dave Arnold (founder, DCA / Softdesk) launched another software company whose technology focuses on a really exciting way to create, deliver, and manage training content. Retrieve’s vBooks are VERY cool. Want to learn how to use a particular feature of an Autodesk product, including Civil 3D? Take a free preview of a vBook at the URL above. Make sure your speakers are on, since the delivery is mostly video. You can even ask the vBooks questions, so that makes them a valuable solution for technical support.All Autodesk courseware is available HERE Also, check out AU Online for all of last year's (2005) classes. www.autodesk.com/auonline
