Transitioning to a BIM solution is a big step. It is far too important of a decision to make without knowing as much as you possibly can.
Revit is intuitive and fairly easy to learn but with today's fast paced project schedules many people don't have the time to learn by trial and error. Time lost by trying to "figure this stuff out" is a pain in the wallet and can lead to a wrong idea of what BIM is really all about. (See Mike's rant below about falling back to AutoCAD)
There are lots of resources out there and many people willing to share their experiences and lessons learned.
Don't be afraid to ask!
