What is a good Training Book for AutoCAD AutoDesk?

I'm new to AutoCAD.  It was sort of tossed at me when one of my co-workers left.  I've seen it but not really used it.  I'm just wondering if there is a good book that has lessons that will show me how to create things, save them and continue working on them later.  Like a basic book for programming in a sense.  Not looking for a manual but a "AutoCAD for Dummies" type thing but with step by step lessons so I am actually doing something.

 

Apologies in advanced if this is the millionth time somebody has asked this or if I missed the link somewhere on the main forum.

Then there is the Autocad Bible

or even this Mastering AutoCAD

All are good books IMHO

I am a big fan of all of the books that Murph mentioned, but, you might want to start with AutoCAD: No Experience Required (it's the starter book before Mastering AutoCAD).






*disclaimer: I have worked on a few of the books listed above, but, I do not get royalties or additional fees of any sort for my role in them, I honestly think they're good books and that's why I recommend them.
