AutoCAD LT Resources

This little program has a few followers out there, and I was compiling a list the other day in response to a another user's question on a forum. Like me, he was servicing a program he doesn't daily use. I have a couple of LT seats here in the Hospital, but, admit to being mostly ignorant of what the different 'limitations' of LT are... although, I've seen some rundowns...
AutoCAD vs AutoCAD LT (ie, what's the difference?)
Key Differences Between AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT (2006)
Lynn Allen's 30-minute webcast explaining the differences

So, I thought I would organize those links and share them with you here:

AutoCAD LT Community - www.AUGI.com/AutoCAD (okay, fine, it's for full and LT, but, we don't forget the LT users!)

AUGI Acad LT forums
Autodesk Discussion Groups LT forum

LT Blogs:
UPDATE: Kate M now works for Autodesk, so all of her CAD Tips for LT have been ported over to her new Autodesk Blog "LT Unlimited"! So, be sure to check there for new (and old) tips from her!

AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT Bible (a new edition for each release)
AutoCAD and LT 2008: No Experience Required
AutoCAD LT 2008 Tutorial
Mastering AutoCAD and LT 2008
AutoCAD 2008 for Dummies
AutoCAD LT 2005 for Dummies
AutoCAD and LT All-in-one Desk Reference for Dummies

Online Training (although most full AutoCAD training would be applicable):

AutoCAD LT Reading Room

Autodesk Knowledgebase for LT
Autodesk Product Page for AutoCAD LT

Enjoy the LT side of CAD, and let me know if there are any resources which I've forgotten to mention!

You did not mention add on packages. I have found some Architectural packages that are more than just block libraries.

Full feature Architecture package with 3D:
*DRCAUTO Smart Architect 2008
*CADligic LT Architect v.4

Collection of 2D Architectural related blocks and utilities:
*PenDean Dmenu 2006 (no 2008)
*Acadstore.com Real Architect 2008

I unfortunately need a 2D application between the two. Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with any of the Add-On packages... Kate, Dean and Erik might have better answers for you (listed under blog links above).
