Hi all,

I am brand new to Revit (and Revit City) and am excited about learining it.  I am an engineer doing structural work.  I will be spending the vast majority of my time in the structural module.  I am the only one in my office that will be learing Revit at this time, so training is all up to me.  I have found a book called "Mastering Revit Structure 2010" by Wier.  I'm using the 2013 design suite.  Do any of you have any experience with this book?  With it pertaining to RS 2010, will it be good to use for the 2013 software?  Any other suggestions on learining/training would be greatly appreciated.  I know you tube has a lot of various videos, but I am really looking for a more structured training book.  Thanks for any help!

You won't find a lot of structural training books but the Mastering Revit books are good resources for begginers even if its the Architecture book.  Cadclips.com is a good site for tutorials.  The program itself should have some built in tutorials that will be helpful.  Use your HELP to search for clarification on items you are not quite grasping.

In my opinon this type of approach to implementing Revit will be the most difficult. While still using your current methods to complete most work, there needs to be a team effort on a given choosen project. You may be designated as the lead person and develop the process, but there is no "i" in team so to say. Unless you are a office of one. This is how Revit will be used and this knowlege base needs to be slowly developed across a team if that is how it is going to be used. If you are a office of any size, I would recommened against this approach to a Revit implementation. I am not saying that it can't be done, but that I think it is the most difficult approach. It's like trying to run a Hospital with one general practitioner.

Believe me, I wish it were that way too, but I'm not the boss.  We are a small office and I'm going to have to give it my best shot.
