new user question

I want to use 2008 autoCAD solely for 2 things:
1. 2D Electrical Single Line diagrams (schematics) for facility power
distribution (transformers, cable, circuit breakers, panels, etc.)
2. 2D panel schedules for electrical dist panels.
What add-ons are needed (or beneficial), if any, for these tasks?
What about this add-on, is another better/cheaper and similar?

Thanks in advance.

You do not really need anything. You can draw a symbol once extract it from your drawing and add it to a library as you go. Or you can by a library of ready made symbols that you may or may not like.

although a proficient cad person could do that, what i really want is not to become very proficient in cad - i don't have the need or too much time - i want to learn to just do fairly simple 2D single line electrical schematics, single layer, already made symbols to just pick from a list....
where could i buy an inexpensive package of elec symbols?
regards,
bob
