In the Learning SolidWorks 2011: A Project Based Approach textbook,

the author has used a motor cycle model as the real-world project. After reading this textbook, you will be able to create various components of a motor cycle and then assemble them to develop the complete model of a motor cycle. Once the model has been developed completely, you will learn how to generate the drawing views. This unique method makes the learning process simple and effective for both the novice as well as advanced users of the software.

Written with the tutorial point of view and the learn-by-doing theme, the textbook is ideally suited for learning at your convenience and at your pace. Moreover, each tutorial is supported by relevant textual description to make the process of learning easy and interactive.
