This page includes links to recommended resources for learning Revit.
Autodesk Revit 2017 for Architecture No Experience Required, by Eric Wing. This is a detailed resource for students who are completely unfamiliar with Revit. It leads readers through the production of a Revit project similar to what they might encounter in contemporary professional practice. The book is the latest revision to an old title, and earlier versions of the same title are just as good (allowing for the minor changes made to the app every year).
Residential Design Using Autodesk Revit 2017, by Daniel John Stine. This book is especially useful for the student who wishes to understand the use of Revit in residential design. This approach distinguishes Stine’s text from other books focused on large-scale commercial or institutional design. Because Revit workflows and strategies vary according to project size and scale, students should consider this text if they have a specific interest in smaller-scale design.
Mastering Autodesk Revit 2017 for Architecture, by Lance Kirby, Eddy Krygiel, and Marcus Kim. This book is the latest revision to an old title. It assumes some basic Revit knowledge – it does not start from scratch. Use this book if you are interested in expanding upon your understanding of Revit fundamentals.
Autodesk’s product-specific video tutorials are probably the best integrated collection available online. The tutorials are appropriate for students without prior experience in Revit, provided they are completed in order. http://help.autodesk.com/view/RVT/2017/ENU/ — or for an older version of the same content, see http://help.autodesk.com/view/RVT/2016/ENU/
The publisher O’Reilly has a series of free, short, introductory tutorials on Revit. (Additional tutorials are available for a fee.) The tutorials under the heading of “Things You Must Do First” are especially useful. http://tinyurl.com/jjfjlpl (Full link: http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920040392.do?cmp=yt-design-books-videos-product-na_video___revit_architecture_2016)
