Residential Revit - Book Review

Residential Design using Autodesk Revit Building 9

Author: Daniel John Stine
SDC Publcations

My Impression:
Some instructional books try to please everybody and become too generic. That's definitely not the case with this one. The basics of Revit are applied to imperial unit based, wood frame residential techniques of most of the USA and Canada. The narrative is conversational and easy to understand but needs a good editor and spell checker. I like the large print and diagrams. The approach is to take one project from preliminary drawings to working drawings, details and renderings etc. All of the essentials are covered but nothing really in-depth. This book will help the residential designer or student get up to speed fast with Revit but needs to be followed up with an advanced version.
