What Customers Are Saying about the Step By Step Learning Books
"My name is Calvin H. I came across your site while doing a search for additional tutorial information for Chief Architect. I purchased your Step-by-Step Guide (X4) and began reading it. It was great! After the first 45 pages, I had a very comfortable understanding of the GUI and felt a lot less intimidated about facing a steep learning curve. In the last week I've purchased your pdf books on roofs and the CA Expert series. These days I am a Web Developer and internet marketer by trade, but I originally went to school at ASU for Architectural Design. Although I've never pursued that dream, I've always wanted to build and design my personal work space and home....So thanks for getting me "back in the game" so to speak'
"I want to let anyone who is new to Chief Architect, and to CAD for all that matter, to definitely invest in Terry Munson's book, Learning Chief Architect X4 Step by Step. This book is everything that the title says it is. It literally takes you from the very beginning of what to click and where to the final product. I am about 1/3 of the way through this book and I would not have been able to accomplish what I have done thus far without it. Terry has been so helpful in answering some of my questions when I get stuck. I mean where do you get that kind of service anymore?!? I HIGHLY recommend this book.

“Great job on the new book. I have purchased the pdf version but think the hard copy would be an asset."
Just opened my pdf copy of Terry's Book. I am a retired drafting teacher, have been using CA for 15 years and this is the best CA book I have ever seen! I may have to order the hardback also".
"I just wanted to tell you that you did an absolutely wonderful job on your book "Chief Architect Step By Step" I purchased and downloaded it Saturday and haven't been able to put it down. Thank you again for your hard work and effort you put into this book!"

I’m beyond impressed with the quality of the content and simple approach to getting a clear understanding as to the operation of the program “Chief Architect”. Particularly noteworthy, and especially helpful, is the fact that the CD version (PDF) Contents has been linked to each part and chapter. This is incredibly helpful for navigation. The follow-along plans and layouts included on the CD are invaluable.
The book is a solid reference as well. Your use of tips is particularly helpful, as are the numerous drawings, diagrams, and helpful references. The text is easy on the eyes, and simple to understand. Your chapter on the development of construction documents is of particular interest to design/build professionals, so that a project can be submitted for final review and permits.
Kudos to the publisher as well, for such a well bound and solid manual. I have to say that I believe I have every reference manual and book ever published for use with Chief Architect, and this is by far the best one I’ve seen.
This work is more than worth the price."

I can say with complete honesty that “This book is an excellent training aid and resource for not only the novice user of Chief Architect, but for the advanced user as well. It is well crafted, thoughtfully laid out and easy to understand and follow. An excellent publication. Kudos Terry.”
