Revit Architecture 2015 exercise files are designed to reinforce the material learned in each tutorial chapter by providing opportunities for real-world applications. Use the exercise files for Revit Architecture 2015 at any point during your software training. Separate folders are maintained with a set of exercises applicable to each chapter, plus there is a data file called Building Sites that is used by multiple practice projects.
If you are a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. The exercise files are located in a folder which I've placed on my desktop. That folder contains a subfolder for each of the chapters in the course. You open a particular folder for a chapter, and you will find a series of Revit files in that folder. In some cases you will find some additional files that are not Revit format you'll be instructed on what to do with those files in each of the movies that use them. There's one more folder here called lengths and it contains a single Revit file called building site.
That file is referenced by the projects in many of the other folders. There's really nothing for you to do in the links folder. Just keep that file there, in the same relative location, and the other projects will find it. If you're a monthly or annual subscriber to Lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along in your own work. So let's get started.

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.
