Welcome to CAD Everything Donna. Your name seems familiar. Did you just reply to a thread recently?
When it comes to learn AutoCAD there are several options which include, but are not limited to...
1) Self-teaching with the aid of an aftermarket book and/or online tutorials.
2) Basic and advanced classes at an authorized AutoCAD training center (typically a reseller of AutoDesk products).
3) AutoCAD tutorials on CD or DVD.
4) Online classes. Ex. - The CAD Institute (Murray State College).
5) College classes. Ex. - Introduction to AutoCAD class at a local community college.
6) Tutor (usually someone who has been working with AutoCAD for a while).
7) Technical school. Ex. ITT
Like I said, there are numerous ways to learn. Choose the one that works best for you.
Personally speaking, I am basically self-taught but along the way I have taken advantage of attending class at an AutoDesk training facility (for AutoCAD Electrical), taking an online class at the CAD Institute (AutoCAD in 3D), attending community college (three AutoCAD related courses including Mechanical, Architectural and 3D) plus buying/reading any number of books with companion CD's (ex. -AutoCAD 2004 Bible by Ellen Finkelstein). And I have also visited the MyCADSite as well as a handful of others.
Hope some of this may be of value to you. Questions? Just ask. That's what we're here for.
Good luck and welcome.
