After years of using Revit, I must admit I'm a die-hard Revit user. I just got to have the latest version of this software. Aside from keeping up with the latest modeling techniques, I try to devour all reading material pertaining to BIM. Even at my level, I would still read up on my old beginner books just to reinforce my knowledge of Revit.

A couple of months ago, this book caught my eye. Why? Because of two authors who are among the four who has written this book. Beau Turner is a co-blogger at clubrevit.com where I contribute blogs every now and then. And who doesn't know Stephen Stafford (revitoped.com)? I've learned a lot from the internet articles they've written and out of curiosity, I had to find out their approach to teaching Revit on a beginner level.

I was pleasantly surprised when I first opened the book. The layout is a departure from most of the Sybex 'Mastering' series which I've been buying since 2006. I love the format! The text is easier to read and that's because there's a little bit more space in between the lines. The figure numbers for the illustrations are placed on the edges (opposite the spine) where most books would put a 1" to 1 1/2" blank space. A lot of the illustrations also extends to this space. Very cool!

This book is mainly targeted to beginners and intermediate Revit users. There are advanced topics too and this is another reason why I'm adding this to my reference books. I went through the book from cover to cover and learned quite a few Revit stuff myself which I'm not well versed of. The explanations to the topics are simple and direct to the point. The authors know their audience and so everything is explained thoroughly in plain English!

I had purchased the Mastering Autodesk Revit book, but after a few pages I thought it would be better to read this book first to get more of the fundamentals down. I consider myself a quick learner with new programs but with all the changes between Revit and CAD I was getting caught up in the new vocabulary. This book provides a great foundation for learning Revit. The chapters are well organized and easy to read. There are also a lot of pictures so you dont have to be in Revit to understand what is going on although that does help reinforce the concepts.

The manual is not for revit beginners. The authors should have started with a simple 4 sided 2 floor level building and described how to create a set of construction documents of same. To the simple building the following items would be added: fenestrations, column grid, interior partitions, furniture, lighting and ceilings. Instead in Chapter 3 the book describes how to draw one wall segment. The manual in piecemeal fashion describes what each command does and the reader is left to figure out how the commands tie together in an entire real building situation. I now need to order another manual which explains things more holistically.
