    Maybe they finally realized that no companies in the industry use drafting tables anymore. A fair sized portion of the course was based on manual drafting, which is good to learn the basics, but it went into a little too much detail considering a computer is where you'll do 100% of your work. They probably sustituted the manual drafting courses for something else more relative.

    If you need any textbooks let me know, I might have a couple.

    Im taking that, i draft already though so its gunna be hella easy, but i agree i hope they dont waste time with that table drafting bullshit. ACAD is all anyone uses. ive put table drafted shit onto autocad and i dont think id want to draw that shit. looks annoying.

    do they make you rent a laptop for this program? thats what ive heard.

    Yeah I've been done for about a year and a half now.
    I remember autocad I and II, I attended a total of 7 classes through both courses and got A+ in both

    Bryn Davies hated me though.....

    We never had to buy laptops, we just used the school desktops.

    I went to SAIT about 3 years ago and they did not allow for me to use my personal laptop because there needed to be special programs installed and etc.
    so i say, add the programs onto my laptop.
    no the answer was.
