The kit also includes testing to help support to learning process.
One user who downloaded the kit and became a customer said, "ARCHICAD's Interactive Training guide is very user friendly and an excellent training resource. I was impressed with the content and the in-depth way Graphisoft constructed the lessons in each section. I also looked at another BIM software and worked with the training that came with it, but found ARCHICAD's interactive training to be far better."
