5.0 out of 5 stars This book worked very well for me. 4 Dec. 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book - I used last years version of this book to learn revit on my own. You cant pick and choose though, you have to do the lessons in order. I am now completing projects for my office on revit, and use this version as a reference. I've learned many CADD programs, and learning Revit was pretty simple using this. Also there are many humorous asides which this book that much more enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars The book looks like it was printed in "draft" mode 1 Jan. 2015
By Denny 004 - Published on
Too early to say if the book is completely helpful but I can say this--it graphics are sub par. The book looks like it was printed in "draft" mode. If you have trouble reading up close; you will have a problem with this book.
