Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Revit Architecture 2013 Essential Training.
If you are a Premium member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to 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 Links 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.
