Revit Quick Start Guide

Course | Skill builder
The Revit Quick Start Guide helps you improve your skills. For first-time users, Key Revit concepts, Revit driver’s manual, and the User interface tour are a great place to start. If you already understand the fundamentals, the Basic tasks and Project management articles show you how to design in Revit. Finally, if you want to work with a larger project, the Sample project files show how to use Revit on a project.
