To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Got this book for my college class. Every single walkthrough and tutorial in it includes instructions on how to start solidworks, you know; in case you signed up for a computer class and forgot how to use a computer.
Nearly every assignment schematic in the book is either over defined or under defined, meaning that the software will run into issues and complain constantly and causing beginners (which is everyone using this book) to struggle and run around in circles and recite directions and ignoring edge cases instead of actually progressing and developing real skills. The walkthroughs are over descriptive to the point of exaggeration; here is an example.
Instead of going: "Do this to this with a value of 7"
This book goes: "Click this" "Click this" "Type 7 and press enter" "Click this" "Click apply"
This book feels like it was pitched to fill a gap in the market no one really cared about, and it feels like the writer only cared about a page quota instead of the usability of their work.
