Selecting one object is peace of cake.
But if you have also need to modify drawing then you should learn more tricks. I have written about this before. When you get to this step, maybe you want to read more advanced object selection here. You can use noun-verb or verb-noun selection to modify objects.
But I think the default is verb-noun selection, contrary to Windows default: noun-verb selection. Annotation and Styles Ok, now you can draw, you can modify your drawings. Next step: creating annotations and understand using styles. What is annotation? It can be text, hatches, dimensions, tables, etc.
The problem in this step might be setting up the annotation styles and scales. Styles are used to defining how your annotation will look like. There are a lot of option in styles, but what usually confusing is options related to the scale. What size are my dimension arrows should be set? If you work in a company that has to establish a drawing standard, you might not need to set styles anymore. Just use a template that already has all the styles, then use it.
Now you need to get to be more productive.
Remember, drawing with AutoCAD is not just about how fast you can finish the drawing. But your drawing also needs to be easy to be modified.
Not only by you, but also by your team member. You need to manage your drawing and objects inside it.

If you want to learn about the block from very basic to advanced, you may want to review our e-book here: AutoCAD block best practices. It is a good practice to have them compiled in your templates. Furthermore, to maintain your standard, you can use CAD standard. You can also have your reusable content to manage your drawings standard. Having standard will be easier for you and everybody who is working with you.
And you will become more productive after implementing your standard. Design Collaboration You will collaborate with the others for sure. You might have to work with your partners in your company. Or worse, they copy your files and work separately with you. You can work simultaneously with your partners if you divide your design into separates files, then use reference or underlay. Because they are separate files, each of them can be opened by a different person.
The more complicated your file, the more chances it will get corrupted. Learn about XREF. And maybe you want to centralize database with Autodesk Vault. It teaches you how to use AutoCAD in general.

It will suit you, and you will become more productive. Keep Practicing Practice makes perfect. You will get better with a lot of practice.
I think nobody will disagree with this. Try to draw a real project. You will find problems when you use it.
You need to use the right tool for your workflow. It is important at this point to have mastered the coordinate system, and this one will further make you sink the DAY 1 into your brain. You will have one more exercise that will help you practice with the UCS command. Creating Circumscribed around a circle and inscribed in a circle polygons with different number of sides. It is to be noted that previously earned knowledge will be crucially needed to be able to keep up moving forward in this series.
That being said, you will need all you've learned earlier, not to mention the TRIM command that is an unavoidable command when working on a project in AutoCAD.
A complex image will be provided with this session, and you will have to use commands that you might find appropriate to solve different issues that will arise. A skeleton image will be provided to help you Analyze the exercise. Here a little bit of all we've learned earlier will be needed. An image is provided and you will be required to use a sense of analysis to be able to complete it. You can decide to use the UCS command here if you like.
This session will restrict that choice. Here is one the most difficult session. You will also be taught how to create a perfect star in AutoCAD. If you have learned how to proper use the Polar Tracking mode, this one will be a piece of cake. Nevertheless, it will help you make sure you have mastered it. Here is a session that will show you there is not only commands that do the job for you in AutoCAD.
You will have to learn how to read a design and be able to easily replicate it using commands you will choose to make use of without being told or shown. In this Session, you are not taught what to do, but you are rather given an assignment that will make you use the command you have already made use of.
A skeleton image will be provided to help you. Here is a place where you will be pushed to asses the knowledge you've earned in DAY If you have not mastered what was shown in DAY 11, this one will not be an easy one to accomplish.
You will have to know how to use the MIRROR command, and know how to manipulate lines to come out with happy with this relatively complex design.
Here you will learn how to work on complex and bushy project. You need to be able to use the zooming and panning here to perform this one with success. There is nothing new to learn, but assessment to be done on what you have learned.
