Official Training Guides for Revit 2013

Here are a couple of press releases that have come to my attention.

Wiley Announces Official Training Guides for New Autodesk 2013 Products

Seventeen Autodesk Official Training Guides Publishing from Sybex

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 02, 2012

Sybex, an imprint of Wiley, will publish seventeen new books between April and July 2012 on Autodesk 2013 software. Last week Autodesk announced their 2013 software products, and Sybex produces Autodesk Official Training Guides on their top software products to help readers learn and use their powerful 3D design, architectural, engineering, and entertainment software packages.

“We’re excited to once again be able to offer such a diverse collection of Sybex books to help users learn how to best use the new 2013 software from Autodesk,” said Neil Edde, Vice President and Publisher for Sybex. “We have six new full-color Essentials titles publishing, as well as a range of books for users at all levels – beginners through professionals – who want to quickly learn Autodesk 2013 products.”
Sybex is one of two companies designated by Autodesk as a provider of Autodesk Official Training Guides for Autodesk 2013 products. The Autodesk Official Training Guide brand ensures that books have been reviewed and recommended by Autodesk for both classroom training, self-paced learning, and for preparing for Autodesk certification exams.

The 2013 Autodesk Official Training Guides and their availability dates are:
Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013 Essentials (April 2012)
Introducing Autodesk Maya 2013 (April 2012)
AutoCAD 2013 and AutoCAD LT 2013 Essentials (May 2012)
Autodesk 3ds Max 2013 Essentials (May 2012)
Autodesk Maya 2013 Essentials (May 2012)
AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 Essentials (May 2012)
Mastering Autodesk Inventor 2013 (May 2012)
Autodesk Inventor 2013 Essentials (May 2012)

AutoCAD 2013: No Experience Required (May 2012)
Mastering Autodesk Maya 2013 (June 2012)
Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013: No Experience Required (July 2012)
Mastering Autodesk Civil 3D 2013 (June 2012)
Mastering Autodesk 3ds Max 2013 (July 2012)
Mastering Autodesk Navisworks 2013 (July 2012)
Mastering Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013 (July 2012)

ASCENT- Center for Technical Knowledge® Releases Eight Autodesk Official Training Guides for Autodesk® 2013 Software

Framingham, MA

Rand Worldwide®, a global leader in providing technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, announced that its courseware division, ASCENT- Center for Technical Knowledge, released eight training guides for Autodesk2013 software: 
ASCENT has made several enhancements to its Autodesk Official Training Guides for Autodesk’s 2013 release of software. The first of these enhancements is a greater emphasis on Learning Objectives incorporated into the beginning of each chapter and section. Recognizing the value of the Autodesk® Certified Instructor (ACI) program, these objectives have been enhanced to enable both students and instructors to clearly identify the expected learning outcomes of each module.
Secondly, Autodesk Certification exam objectives are now incorporated within the applicable ASCENT training guides. New icons have been added throughout the guides to identify student guide topics related to certification objectives for those who are looking to take the Autodesk Certified Professional Exam. Additionally, users will find a concise mapping document in the Appendix that highlights the exam objectives and where to locate those topics within ASCENT training guides.
Also new to ASCENT’s 2013 training guides is the inclusion of a web address through which to download an electronic version of the exercise files, replacing a CD in the book. Moving the exercise files from CD to an online version will prevent issues with misplaced or damaged CD’s, eliminating downtime while waiting for a new CD. The link to the exercise files is clearly indicated at the front of each Autodesk Official Training Guide. Lastly, ASCENT has made it easy to determine what’s new in the software by including “New in 2013” and “Enhanced in 2013” call-outs throughout the guides, where applicable.
