5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Customer 17 Aug 2012
By Nick
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book and worth every penny. I began working through the book back in June and completed the book yesterday. I managed to fit in an hour or so of study most days. I had absolutely no Revit experience before I opened the book although I was familiar with AutoCAD. At no point did I feel I was out of my depth while studying the book and the one point I did encounter a problem I received a quick response from the books team via there fb page. The problem I had was due to me missing templates and families which was quickly resolved by reinstalling the software.
