Paul Aubin's Mastering Revit Architecture is a concise manual focused squarely on the rationale and practicality of the Revit Architecture process. The book emphasizes the process of creating projects in Revit Architecture rather than a series of independent commands and tools.

The goal of each lesson is to help the reader complete their building design projects successfully. Tools are introduced together in a focused process with a strong emphasis on "why" as well as "how." The text and exercises seek to give the reader a clear sense of the value of the tools, and a clear indication of each tool's potential. Mastering Revit Architecture is a resource designed to shorten your learning curve, raise your comfort level, and most importantly give you real life tested practical advice on the usage of the software to create architecture.

This completely revised and updated edition fully incorporates the new ribbon interface. New features like Project Base Points, Survey Points, Conceptual Modeling, Rendering and Green Building Analysis (coming soon in an eChapter) covered as well.

New – Course notes now available!

Course Notes quick reference cards reinforce the most important and widely used features of CAD and BIM software applications in a visual and user-friendly format. They serve as a great reference guide during and after a course or training session and can be used as a stand-alone learning guide or as a resource to accompany Mastering Revit Architecture.
