Re: course material

I did a week long course held by Imaginit.  They provided 2 books, classroom tutorials and hands on training.  It was overall pretty good!  I use the books a lot for reference as they provide pretty good step by step instructions and tutorials.  All tutorials performed come with a CD and can be accessed at any time.  I would say it has helped me with my advancement in Inventor.  I took the Basic Introduction to Solid Modelling.

Hope this helps.

I'm a little biased on this (since I wrote a few of the exercises) so I'll just add to the ebook conversation...


Now I have done an iPad class with the books and it was awesome.  The students can subscribe to my notes so when I make omissions or course corrections or make a point about concepts they can instantly see the notes in their iPad version (which also works on a desktop application or Android device).  It went over very well.

No I haven't taken these courses in the classroom.  I did do the advanced part modeling 2012 in the P-Now on-line course.


The courses I did take were the vault basic and admin.  What I found lacking is the admin course never provided

a manual to reference for later times and to follow and markup during the course.  Also, the course material didn't get real deep and left a lot of us asking more questions and feeling a complete understanding of the software.  In my opinion the time was too short and needed to be longer in order to cover the contents in greater detail.
