Coming from InRoads, any good resources?

Hi everyone,


I used C3d last in 2007, and to be honest I was only OK at it; grading always frusterated me.  I have since gotten very good at InRoads.  Does anyone have a good resource for my transition back to C3d?  Like a tutorial for competant civils?


Thank you most kindly in advance.  I'm glad to be back, although to be honest I grew to love IR.

The tutorials that come with the product are a good start. Due to the enhancements since 2007 you would do well to go through all of them again.


There is alot on Youtube but it is not orgainized for systematic learning so it is not all that useful as a training resource for learning the product. Once you have the basics it is a good source for specific techniques.


Probably the best resources for individual learning are the books that have been published. They go into more detail than the tutorials. Check the reviews on the varous offerings.
