I took an online software test. It was hard but I got the results and my test result within minutes. I was excited! Then I found out it cost $100 a month. Who’d ever thought it would cost that much?
I started researching online so I could figure out if there were any cheaper ways to do it. Would I be able to find anything on the Internet for less? I tried looking but I just couldn’t find anything. I came up with a list of places that claimed they would teach me how to do it for free. I ignored them all.
Two months later, my cousin asked me about my quest to do this online. She said she had also been in the same position and needed to know what to do. My cousin knew how to draw my map so she asked me if I knew anything about it.
I was really dumbfounded. I didn’t know anything about it. I was just hoping she’d think I was stupid enough not to do it. But she told me all about how to draw the map and about how to place my dots. This was my chance to go online and buy a guidebook that would have everything I need.
I would have taken this course. And I would have bought the template. This would have saved me a lot of money and time. I could have focused on drawing my own layout instead of spending all my time trying to figure it out.
But I didn’t do it. Why? Because I didn’t want to know that I wasted my time. I figured if I told her she was wasting her time then she might start working even harder on the project.
I advise you not to do this. Find online classes before you decide to try your hand at drawing your layouts. You’ll end up saving a lot of time and money. Not to mention you’ll learn a lot more too.
You would think that you’d know what to do online but often we don’t. So this is your best bet. Online courses are usually cheaper and take less time than regular classes. The problem with these courses is that you won’t always be able to go back and review things. There are times when you might be stuck for words and you can’t find them again.
Also, if you took an online course you probably won’t know who the experts are. In the real world you’ll probably know some and know more than them. In the online world, you’ll probably be using the same programs that they are using.
If you had paid a fee to see an expert at a local college then you might be able to get the same program. With the cost of technology these days and the price of the computer itself you would be crazy not to get your hands on something. The problem with online courses is that they are often written by other people. While it may be possible to contact them if you so wanted, chances are they wouldn’t be willing to help you out.
This is why I recommend going to an online forum. Forums are absolutely loaded with other Autocad users and they are always willing to share their experiences. This is better than having a book written by someone who isn’t part of the community. You’ll also get access to real live people and that will make it easier if you ever run into any problems or feel the need for a course review.
Getting an online CAD course is not something you should be scared of. It’s actually quite easy. Find a forum online and talk to other CAD students who can help you. You can ask them questions or give them tips and tricks. The more you do it the easier it will become and the more you’ll get out of it.
