Regarding your questions
Q1: I used the quick project to start and laid out all of the rooms in my house however I have an open floor plan and I am ready to delete walls but I cannot figure it out. Is it possible to delete walls once I pass the quick start or do I need to use custom project?
Absolutely. After you press the "Continue" button you will be able to Change / delete walls, Modify the heights, Import, Print, Move, Use the Power Tools, set the precision and units, as well as use all the TFP features.
Q2: How current is the training book? I read a lot of feeds that say it is outdated. I don't find the videos helpful and I feel I need a better understanding of a lot of the terms, i.e. the different types of wall styles.
Can you tell me where did you read "the feeds" stating that the TFP eBooks are outdated? I am the eBook writer and I can tell that I wrote an eBook for each version of TFP (Startin with V17). Please, check this page in my website http://www.punchhelpers.com/ebookdescript.htm
Wall styles: In my eBooks there is an entire chapter called "Understanding the walls" that explains all the walls' aspects, styles and shapes.
Q3: Are the different terms and options explained in the training book in a manner that a layman could understand or is some type of architectural background required?
The eBooks are for everyone. If you see the pageshttps://www.turbocad.com/turbofloorplan/turbofloorplan-2017-training-tutorials-windows.htmlhttps://www.turbocad.com/turbofloorplan/turbofloorplan-2017-training-tutorials-mac.html
you will see that the eBooks are mostly graphic oriented and all the topics are linked, so you will see the images of the different screens and the necessary commands that you need to use to get the results.
Hope this helps! :-)
