First, the book is so poorly written. Exercises are not complete, topics not explained, etc. (I was not doing the exercises in the computer, so I don;t know if the datasets were included or not. IO struggled thru the material. Took the test again, and did worse.
I own Intro Revit Architecture, but did not bring it. So I purchased a copy in the Expo Hall. Studied the areas I needed help with and I passed with a 95%. Took the Professional test and passed after second try. Thought I would need to purchase the Mastering Revit book, but the Intro book worked. If you are looking for a good book to learn Revit or take the Certification test, DO NOT buy Revit Architecture Essentials, you will be throwing your money way. I don't own the Mastering book, but noticed it was written by the same authors of the Essentials book. Won't be buying the Essentials book.
If you need help with learning Revit, get the Introducing Revit Architecture 2012 book. Those authors respond to emails if you have questions and the information presented in the book is correct.
