- [Instructor] So what should you know before starting the AutoCAD Express Tools Workflow course? Well, the first thing you should know is a basic knowledge of AutoCAD. Ideally what you should have done is the AutoCAD 2017 Essentials course, here on Lynda.com. If you've done that course, you'll know all of the methodologies and terminology that may get covered in this, the AutoCAD Express Tools Workflow course. The other thing you really should know is that we're running AutoCAD 2017, the latest version of AutoCAD at this present time.
Now AutoCAD 2017 may have certain differing layout and ribbon settings to an older version, for example, so just be aware of that. Now the other thing that we will be using is the standard native AutoCAD DWG file for your exercise files that you use to follow along with the videos. I'll cover that in a bit more detail in the next video where we talk about using the exercise files. So let's get going now and obviously you should have the latest version of AutoCAD and maybe you should consider the AutoCAD 2017 Essentials course here on Lynda.com.
