"Our instructor is just packing up to leave after spending five, full days here with us. He taught classes in our office and helped us out with a presentation that will be made next week. This was his second time in our office and it was the most productive. We have had an incredible experience using CDV's Introductory Courseware book. We purchased a copy for nearly everyone here and were taught directly out of it in our office. The instructor took us through the entire book in four days. We were also shown and used selected sections of the soon to be published, Advanced Courseware Book. Our instructor is an architect and a very dynamic teacher and I should note for those of you who buy the CDV courseware book, that there are reasons the book is organized as it is and the commands and processes highlighted the way they are. The Revit program is great, but it is not close to being simple or perfect. Anyone who uses it knows this all too well, but the CDV instructors can walk a beginner around the rough spots and keep them from getting lost, frustrated and overwhelmed."

"The instructor is very competent with the program is able to communicate well. I learned that a single building model approach to design, presentation and construction documents is actually viable. I look forward to more classes once we have some real experience with the program."
Greg Malone, Architect
"It is a very good class. It will get anyone not familiar with the program up to speed very quickly, and enable them to do a lot with the program. Good Instructor and very knowledgeable. Took time to answer all our questions and work with us when we made mistakes. He was very thorough and knew the program inside and out. If he didn't know the answer immediately, he would look it up or experiment with it to find out, and let us know the next day. He was clear, understandable and kept an eye on everything everyone was doing, and kept us together. Worked on the project with us, so we could see what he was doing at the same time we were doing it. The courseware is easy to follow and understand. Still using it to review things that I have forgotten since the class, and it's clear enough that I can figure what I need out. I would recommend the course to everyone. It's good for those making the transition to Revit, and it starts at the beginning, so anyone can learn and get up to speed quickly with it. The office can easily take the program and do stuff with it immediately."
John Alvarado, Project Manager / CAD Manager
"This course taught me more about Revit following the courseware's step-by-step instructions than by learning the software on my own. The instructor was very knowledgeable and passionate about the software and knew material that was being taught very well. His presentation skills were good. The courseware is excellent, intuitive and easy to understand. I would highly recommend this course to others, because following the book and the instructor's instruction make learning simpler for someone like me, who is used to working in command action in AutoCAD."
Priya Patel, Architect
"What I liked best about the class was the opportunity to learn the software at work with step-by-step process of learning commands and building upon them. We had an an excellent teacher. He was open to answering any question and very eloquent. The class was a good pace with organized handouts."
Imis Katz, Project Manager
"It doesn't seem like there's anything our instructor doesn't know about Revit or can't quickly figure out."
