Autodesk Revit Architecture 2011: No Experience Required is the perfect hands-on, step-by-step introduction to Autodesk's revolutionary Revit Architecture software. Through a continuous, easy-to-follow tutorial, you'll learn Revit by planning and developing a four-story office building—doing everything from designing to documenting to presenting the final project. Follow the tutorial sequentially or jump in at any chapter by downloading the drawing files from the companion website.
