I read the parts I was assigned necessary to draft buildings. Includes the needed materials, perspectives, rendering (I didn't read that part), presentations, and free hand (as opposed to using a ruler and such architect tools). Many drawn pictures, examples, and shading. Seems like it includes all the basic techniques you need to draw buildings from different angles. I've used it as a reference many times.

A classic by Ching, used by architecture students through the decades, it seems. Manual drafting techniques are essential, and a good architect, although well versed in CAD, can't succeed without learning the tips and tricks Ching offers throughout Architectural Graphics.
