The five chapters in Part I provide all the basics you need
to start drawing in AutoCAD. These chapters are essential
for the beginner, but even current users will find some
new tips and pointers, especially related to features that are
new for AutoCAD 2002. If you feel you know enough to skip to
Part II, skim this part first for New Feature icons to bring yourself
up to date. Some of the major new features of AutoCAD
2002 are introduced here.
