I am a new user and need to get up to speed fast.
Something self paced on line would be best, any recommendations or pro's / con's of different training programs would be greatly appreciated!
I have seen some tutorials from both http://www.solidprofessor.com/ and http://myigetit.com/ and can recommend both.
http://inspirtech.com/ is another, but I have not seen any of those.
There are also many tutorials viewable in the SW blogs and YouTube.
http://myigetit.com/ would be one to look at. I used it for some UG training & it seemed to be pretty easy to follow along & the tutorials were pretty good. I believe with myigetit, they used to have a sample group of tutorials you could try before buying.
You can find more details & discount on myigetit training in the following post:
I have some concerns about SolidProfessor. I'm currently using the trial version and quite a few of the drawings and instructions is either not clear or incorrect. Also I'm tryingt get some practice on the CSWP exam and lots of the information are missing from the drawings. There is also another one where the drawing is completely different from SolidProfessro supplied model. I tried to call SolidProfessor and I was told that they only support installation issues and if the software is not working properly and for other technical issues I need to contact SolidWorks. Just my two cents.
Solidprofessor is good, my company has them and they are like going to a training
session at your VAR. But you have to pay for them. If you are looking for no cost
and quick, use the tutorials inside of Solidworks. They are pretty good.
Also if you go to the Solidworks World link inside of the portal there are sessions
inside of there for specific topics you can download at no cost as well.

I'm a big fan of the tutorials that come with SolidWorks. Look under Help. After that, there are additional SolidWorks tutorials found here:
Good morning Bob,
I have SolidProffesor and I like it. SolidProffesor comes as an add in, so it's right at your fingertips. Another good thing to get is the Parts Bible & Assembly Bible.
The difference between the two that I have seen is with SolidProffesor it shows you how to use the different icons/commands etc.. and the books from Lombard are more realistic and kind of seperates the hype and real life instances.
