I work for a large firm that's about to do their very first project in Revit as a test before final decision is made on whether to switch entirely. For this project, our MEP consultant will send their work to us as dwg's. Knowing only the basics of importing, are there any significant instructions (esp regarding layers) I need to give our MEP guys before I import their drawings to make everyone's life easier?

Any tips/help is appreciated.

HELP file is a good start for you. Try to understand the concept first.

Thanks, I do understand the concept, was hoping for tips & tricks from folks who have experinece working with MEP consultants using CAD, if there're any shortcuts or monumental discoveries gained through experience that made their life easier.

i work with a structural engineering firm and in our experience there hasn't been any real problems or issues. as a preference i like to keep the CAD drawing in color to make it easier to distinguish between the Revit lines and the CAD lines.

Check with your dealer also, he should be able to give you a manual of tips and tricks on collaboration. Also check the postings at Autodesk University, there's tons of info.

be careful! Importing DWG from Autocad to Revit is different story (very easy). "Collaborate" is working on one REVIT project by a team work, such as making workset for Site, interior partitions, suspended ceiling, furnitures, details, and etc.

It is not for "how to collaborate with other team works witch have used other softwares".
