Where can I find a REAL guide to AutoCAD products for civil engineers?

I am wanting to find a guide/book that covers AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 and AutoCAD Map 3D 2008 for civil engineers targeted at a beginner who knows a few basics about AutoCAD. Mainly, I’m wanting to access the additional features of these products. Any suggestions?

    Basically any search engine will be your best answer. I use AutoCAD 3d modeling extensively in my design work and anything I have been stumped on, the internet has solved for me. There is a lot of useful information in forums as well. Other than that, run to Barnes & Noble and peruse the engineering section. You’ll find tons of books there on this.

    Harnessing Autodesk Civil 3D 2007 is a good book.
    http://www.amazon.com/Harnessing-Autodesk-Civil-3D-2007/dp/1418014885

    Yes, it is 2007, but the program is essentially the same in process between the two versions.

    While on that site I noticed this book as well:
    http://www.amazon.com/Mastering-Autodesk-Civil-3D-CD-ROM/dp/0470167408/ref=pd_sim_b_2_img/105-7656861-0990065
    The “Mastering” series of books are excellent. If you have until the end of July when this book comes out it would/will be well worth the price of getting it.

    Also, you could contact your local Autodesk reseller to see if they can acquire a text book for you or perhaps offer training:

    The text may be a bit expensive (perhaps in the $100 range), but they are designed to teach beginners step by step how to use the program.
