I am having a hard time editing that post... I see there is an extra space at the end of the link. This one should work: https://bimchapters.blogspot.com/2017/06/international-books-sales.html

For a beginner I recommend this playlist on youtube, 

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLB3DC6A8DE288C013

This is a full revit course from user interface to modeling, detailing, sheets, and massing.

 

For intermediate user or professionals, I recommend Mastering Autodesk Revit series, as well as this you tube channel, https://www.youtube.com/user/zedjr01

Hi All,

 

Sharing another learning resource: 

How to download Revit tutorial files

 

Exercise files are available online for each tutorial in this series. 
For access to all of the exercise files, download this zip file and extract its contents. The instruction page for each tutorial indicates the files that are specific to that exercise.

I recommend you read the material of "ascented" books in the architecture field, and these are my reasons.
1- You will find a defined structure for study Revit Architecture from fundamentals to professional perfromance.
- ( Revit 2018 Architecture Fundamentals Imperial/Metric)

2- The structure of the books package was desisgned for implementation on collaboration and BIM managemente using Revit.
- Revit 2018 BIM Management: Template & Family Creation
-Revit 2018 Collaboration Tools

3.- Finally the keyfeature to get experience in a real scenario with the autodesk standarts, is passing the exam ACP (autodesk certified professional) for architecture.
- Autodesk Revit 2018 Architecture Review for Professional Certification

I just love how many times Paul A has commented on this thread.

His books are great, I'm definitely not knocking him for a bit of self-promotion he has earned it.
I will say thou Daniel Stine's books are the ones I tend to recommend. really well written, pity it's not available in metric versions.
Come on America, it's not too late to join the rest of the world.
