I'm starting to learn a bit of Revit but I am also interested in learning Archicad. I guess these are the two big programs for BIM. It seems like there are more firms using Revit but that does not necessarily mean it is better. I guess I am just looking to hear of any more advanced users thoughts on each of these programs.

it depends; do you want a job?

Learn whatever one the firm that hires you is using. If you are unemployed revit is a safer investment.

It's not a bad idea to learn to use both of them. You could start with Revit.

I learned Revit. There are enough similarities that it helped me with ArchiCAD at my current place. I keep myself up to speed on Revit too.

I find more residential focused firms use archicad and bigger firms use revit. they are super similar programs so as long as you know one you won't have a problem learning the other.

Seems like Revit is more prevalent with large and more established firms. Haven't seen ArchiCad as much.
