Course textbooks are software-specific. Textbooks are required for all Autodesk and Adobe software courses. Textbooks are NOT required for Blueprint Reading or for SketchUp.
Textbooks can be purchased through VDCI at the time of course enrollment. The cost for the textbook includes the textbook, shipping and California state tax (as applicable). VDCI is not responsible for delays in shipping. VDCI does not ship textbooks internationally. Textbooks may also be purchased through any bookseller. Please note the Title and the ISBN below.
If you decide to purchase an earlier version of the textbook, that’s totally fine. Just understand that the instructional materials reference the latest textbook, so you might need to do some searching for the specific topics in the index of the textbook you choose to purchase. Typically, there are not significant changes to the textbooks between sequential updates to the software.
