You should learn the different versions of Revit for Revit Architecture 2015 to make a fact-based decision on the one that will best meet your needs. For example, Revit is part of the Building Design Suite and includes functionality for all disciplines, architecture MEP and structure. Revit Architecture is a stand-alone product that only includes the architectural functionality. Revit LT is a limited version of Revit Architecture. In this online video, you will be able to compare features.
…As you may be aware, there are a variety of versions or flavors of Revit out there.…In this movie I'd like to talk about some of those…differences between them and talk about the focus of this course.…So for architecture, we have three options.…There is Revit or Auto Desk Revit, which is the full…product that includes functionality for…all disciplines, architecture MEP and structure.…This is part of the Building Design Suite, so if…you have one of the Building Design Suites, then you…actually have Auto Disk Revit, and you'll have multiple tabs…and each tab will include…the functionality of the different disciplines.…
There's also Revit Architecture, which…includes only the architectural functionality.…The only real difference between Revit and Revit Architecture…is essentially in the options dialogue where you can choose…which disciplines are of interest to you, and turn…on and off functionality in the full version of Revit.…In the Revit Architecture product, it only…includes the architectural functionality to begin with.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
