How to Use these PRACTICE Drawings Best!
Review the hard copy manual to decide which bonus exercise drawings you like most.
Copy the DVD's folder BONUS_EXERCISES_20 & contents to the root of C: or D: drive.
Use the book's PDF copy to access the quizzes by means of the convenient Quiz Links.
Open BONUS_EXERCISES_20.dwg to work side by side with EKHO's drawing copies.
Play the videos on how to create the drawing after trying on your own first.
Time yourself on the first attempt and then redo the drawing later and compare your
improved time. Use TIME, Reset to set the Elapsed timer to 0 before you start inside our
drawings or you will be viewing the total time we have spent on the drawing, not your own.
Most important of all, answer the automatically scored quizzes to see if your drawing is
accurate. This is better than having a private tutor marking your work because of:
1. The accuracy of the Inquiry toolbar questions checking your precision AutoCAD work.
2. You can do the quiz when you are ready and not when your classmates are!
3. You get instant scores/feedback without waiting on a busy instructor & classmates!
Take advantage of EKHO's convenient My Report Card on page 38 to keep track of your
success and monitor your speed improvements with 2nd attempts at the drawings.
Plot scales declared on each page are based on 1:1 plots on Letter size paper!
Draw your own version without help first. Cut/Paste our copy & check for errors when stuck!
The EKHO Signature Series of drawings is a
unique, exciting collection from a real life project to
EKHO Signature Series
give students a great sense of real jobs! Designed

There are three different easy methods for a student to start these bonus exercise drawings.
1. Work inside of this drawing BONUS_EXERCISES_20.dwg by Ctrl-Clicking on the
EKHO Exercise Link icon which will take you to the correct view in model space to
start your own version side by side with EKHO's copy of the model.
2. Work inside of a separate external drawing by Ctrl-Clicking on The EKHO Drawing
Link icon which will also take you to the correct view in model space.
3. Start your own new drawing by left clicking on AutoCAD's New File icon and start
everything from scratch. This will provide the best learning experience for a
keen student because you are starting from scratch.
