    Take a drafting course at your local JC.

    That was a very rude answer and absolutely no help at all. Of course you didn't mean to help. You just wanted to be a smart a$$ and you achieved that.

    Bull sheet,,,,, Monte. We've butted heads several times before, usually over your friggin fuzzy sensitive viewpoints. Thirty years ago, a company requested I learned how to read blueprints, THAT is exactly what they recommended I do. Case closed, if you can draw 'em you can read 'em.

    Oh, yeah,,,,, just wanted to mention. I killed a couple rabbits last week, they were trying to eat my pepper plants Didn't even bother trying to make rabbit stew out of them; they were so bloody (12 ga.), just tossed the carcasses into the compost pile, they'll be part of next year's tomatoes.

    Give this a shot. Kind of pricey but there are cheaper ones on Amazon.com. Good luck. Print reading is a huge part of becoming a good all around employee.

    The person asked a simple question. He didn't say he wanted to learn for a job. If so, your answer would have been fine. If someone asked you for directions to somewhere, would you tell them to get a job at Rand McNally or buy a GPS? You could tell them also to go to a JC. Be sure to tell them the rabbit story. That will impress them.

    You don't need to know how to draw them to read them otherwise i'd be screwed. I'm gonna have to agree with Monte on this one. I have been known to shoot a rabbit from time to time though.

    I agree. My grampa told me when i was a kid that he couldn't read drawings so he took a night class at the then local high school. He said if you ever get a chance to learn do it. So i signed up for classes at my high school and learned...Bob

    Bob, I was always sorry I didn't take a drafting course in high school or college. I did end up taking one at a local JC, about 4 years AFTER I finished my (non-engineering) Batchelor's degree. Bunch of teenagers there, I was the oldest one in the class, felt like a dirty old man looking at girls. I had already left the job that suggested I take the class, but I finished anyway because I very quickly realized the benefits to understanding blueprints. I still can't draw worth a dam, but I can sketch pretty good.
