I am a novice Mathcad Prime 6.0 user and want to purchase a suitable hardcopy [print] user’s manual to expedite my learning curve with this software. The closest match my online search has produced thus far is a 2013 Academic Press publication titled Essential PTC® Mathcad Prime® 3.0: A Guide for New and Current Users, by Brent Maxfield. It appears that no such version exists for Prime 6.0. Are there enough similarities between the Prime 3.0 and 6.0 codes to justify buying the aforementioned book?
Take a look at this book - "Engineering Calculations with Creo Parametric and PTC Mathcad Prime": https://www.amazon.com/Engineering-Calculations-Parametric-Mathcad-Prime-ebook/dp/B089242M9F
I wouldn't recommend that first one because it's based on Mathcad 6.0, not Mathcad Prime 6.0; as in it was published over two decades ago and isn't applicable to the current software.
Unfortunately, PTC doesn't recommend or have hard-copy books for Mathcad Prime. The closest thing would be if you'd want to print out the Help files.
Also, thank you for your Mathcad interest...!
I learned by doing, and I think it's the best way.
