First, the book is so poorly written. Exercises are not complete, topics not explained, etc. (I was not doing the exercises in the computer, so I don;t know if the datasets were included or not. IO struggled thru the material. Took the test again, and did worse.
I own Intro Revit Architecture, but did not bring it. So I purchased a copy in the Expo Hall. Studied the areas I needed help with and I passed with a 95%. Took the Professional test and passed after second try. Thought I would need to purchase the Mastering Revit book, but the Intro book worked. If you are looking for a good book to learn Revit or take the Certification test, DO NOT buy Revit Architecture Essentials, you will be throwing your money way. I don't own the Mastering book, but noticed it was written by the same authors of the Essentials book. Won't be buying the Essentials book.
If you need help with learning Revit, get the Introducing Revit Architecture 2012 book. Those authors respond to emails if you have questions and the information presented in the book is correct.
The authors do not take you by the hand, and guide you step by step, in order to produce a project. Something you can feel good about it at the end.
Instead they give you files, that are not completely related as a project, with the intent to show what revit can do in architecture. also there are no video clips to reinforce and expand on the training lessons. This book is a waste of time. Spend your money in something that you can actually self-teach and produce a project at the end.

It helps that through the course of the tutorials the book links to important issues in the Revit certification process. Whether you're studying for Revit certification or looking to learn the essentials of quality BIM, this book and its downloadable tutorials will get you there. Incidentally, Sybex has undone the links, they are now at: [...]
Using best practices and definitions found near the end of each chapter will be a helpful resource as the reader moves forward with their BIM team and encounters new issues.
The understanding of BIM workflow would be very useful for principals, consultants, project managers, clients, and building operators in understanding the integrated project delivery method (IPD). Also, the authors, occasionally, give `ways-of-thinking' helping those from a cad-based work world, which is useful for readers relating to the material.
