I bought the previous SketchUp for Dummies book and found it very informative; it has saved me a lot of time by showing me what not to do as well as what I should do to accomplish my modeling goals. It looks like I'll have to pick this edition up as well.

I do wish these weren't "Dummies" books, though. After all, I'd like to think I'm no dummy. I use SketchUp!

In this book, the author indicated that he put "color images: color versions of some of the images in this book online at www.dummies.com/go/sketchup7fd",

I browsed the entire website but found none "color images" available!

and in the chapters, all the times readers are referred to 'Color Plate 1, See Color Plate 2-4, 2-5, 6, etc.' all are just not there in the website!!!
