My company is sending me for a 3 day Revit Fundamentals trainning course @ Imaginit and I would like to buy a Revit 9.1 book for reference after the course. I consider myself proficient with Autocad 2D & 3D (after 20 years using it better be!) and good-enough with ADT, but I have no clue about using Revit, zero! nada!

I will apreciate any help.

Thanks for your advice. Amazon has a good description of the content of the book (seems to be extense and well organized) but they are not reviews from buyers. One of my concerns is that the book has been written by engineers (both Sham Tickoo and CADCIM staff). My experience with other books is that they have a better angle when they are written by architects. But this is not a big deal. I was curious about other book that seems to be the "Best Seller" Revit book, "Mastering Autodesk Revit Building" (Autodesk Revit) by Paul F. Aubin, and also "Introducing & Implementing Autodesk Revit Building"by Lay Christopher Fox and James J Balding. Any input about these books?

Depending on the Company providing the instruction, they should be providing a Fundamentals book / tutorial that you can keep after the sessions are over. The Autodesk website has the same tutorials and reference manuals for sale on their website.

Thanks for your input guys. Flick, you were right, I got the Fundamentals Book, but is a little simple. I'm going to Boders this weekend to see if they have something I can read before I buy it.

I too went thru the Revit experience two years ago, after being a 15 year veteran Cadder. 

It took me a long time to re-learn tasks in Revit that were always so easy to achieve with Cadd.  It was strange to work in a bleak white, colorless & layer-less environment. There are no cursor crosshairs or familiar ortho settings. Now I realize there never was any "Auto" in AutoCad!

 

Some of the biggest changes (and improvements) are

NO coordinates, NO UCS, NO colors, NO layers, NO LT scale, NO Paper/Modelspace, NO Viewports, NO Plot routines, NO lost or orpahaned Xrefs, NO lost Xref files, NO CTB files, NO Dimstyles. In other words, all the frustrating chores of preparing "dumb" 2D drawings are a thing of the past.  With Revit, the program "draws" all your Elevations, exteriors as well as interior views, plus it can instantly give you a Cross Section or Detail view, all without you re-drawing any of the previous information information.  A few clicks of the mouse are all it takes to get a properly formatted Reflected Ceiling Plan. All you do is fill in the ceiling areas, which interact with the Plans & Sections. All this while in the background, Revit is meticulously recording Door, Window & Room Finish Schedules for you!  It's like having THREE extra people drafting for you!

With Revit, it's as close to actually BUILDING a structure as you'll ever come, without going to a jobsite.

One bit of advice:  PATIENCE & PERSERVERANCE is a MUST!    Never give up!

Best of luck, future Reviteer Rat!  May the force be with you!

Rob
