Help! - Part 2
...continued from my previous post Help!
AutoCAD's Help pulldown menu contains some very useful information...
Starting with AutoCAD 2004 there is a "New Features Workshop" on the Help pulldown menu (which has been enhanced in AutoCAD 2005). This presents you with Flash enabled screens to show you all the new features within the release. This very helpful in getting someone "New Feature" aware quickly.
Also note on some of the screens there is a circle with a "T" in it which contain tutorials... these (although they are not a substitute for formal training) are also very helpful in getting acquainted with these new or enhanced features.
Here are some excellent resources to help you find/explore further on AutoCAD 2005's New Features:
