Would have like more time on Auto Cad esp. for a beginner, new to the program. Time to orientate/know the why/ how to set up parameters. otherwise good content

For me even having a basic understanding of Revit, I found it very useful and learned a lot. The inclusion of Auto Cad was very useful for me as well

Very good, I learnt a lot, possibly too much in one go

Lots of information. Too fast. Not enough time to consolidate. Not for beginners. It’s assumed that there has been SOME previous experience.
