Autodesk Revit Architecture 2014 Essentials

The release of this book introduces a new team of authors; Tobias Hathorn, Tessa Reist Hathorn and Ryan Duell. They have taken over the book from the team that first introduced it a couple years ago; James Vandezande, Eddy Krygiel, and Phil Read. You are probably already familiar with their other book, "Mastering Autodesk Revit Architecture 20##", the bigger brother to Essentials and the "Introducing" book that was discontinued after the 2012 release.

The Wiley site for the book tells us:

Beginners will get comfortable with Revit's core features and functions. Current users will have a valuable reference to refresh and hone their skills. And everyone can use this practical book to help prepare for the Revit Architecture certification exams. Essentials gets readers up and running on Autodesk Revit Architecture 2014, Autodesk's industry-leading building information modeling software:
  • Explains core Revit tools, features, functionality, real-world workflows, and BIM concepts
  • Covers schematic design, modeling, families, views, creating drawing sets, and more
  • Features best practices, rendering and visualization, worksharing, documentation, and annotation
  • Provides downloadable starting and ending files, so readers can compare their work to that of the pro's 
Autodesk Revit Architecture 2014 Essentials is your perfect introduction to the powerful industry-leading BIM software.

If you are just getting started out with Revit this book may be just what you need. If you have an office of Revit users it might just be a great addition to your library too!

Congratulations to the new team on the release of their book!

Nice to see in that book a name that represents quality, accuracy, reliability, on everything about Revit, all the time: Ryan Duell.

Can I use the 'introducing autodesk revit architecture 2012' to learn the 2014 one?

Marcos - sure what the older book covers is still true for the most part. The interface will be a little different in places and there are improvements in 2014 that the book won't mention naturally.
