Given I am working on Tableau, this is one of the course which helped me to pick up a BI tool very fast. Firstly the product is becoming excellent day by day and is really easy to use. Recommendation would be provide: 1. more reading and more and more example to try hands on may be on the Desktop version. 2. Create some case and then do the visualization to help bring the creative side of the though process of using the tool. 3. Very importantly cover more topics on data mining using DAX and visualization for exploratory analysis. 4. Integration of statistical analysis would be also helpful.

Very interesting and helpful content of the course. Interesting exercises and tips. I have learned a lot even. I had to watch some instructions multiple times as instructors are speaking not clearly enough. Also few lessons had very bad quality of videos.

This course helped to learn the very basics of Power BI. The course content should have included complex requirements and features like Row Level Security, Analytics, DAX (one whole section should have been dedicated towards DAX). If you have prior experience of working on some other reporting/BI tool, the course will be very basic for you. Strongly recommend it for Newbies.

Overall an excellent course to provide the gist of this visualization tool. Anyone from even a non-technical background can easily grasp these. Really helped me a lot in getting started with tool. Just one recommendation, would have been good to include few more labs.

I tought that I could learn a little bit how to analyze and get some great insights using data visualizations in Power BI with this course. Although I really liked the first part of the course, the last 3 topics were not helpful at all. There were two parts of the course were they presented what you could do on mobile devices, and even the last topic covered Windows Phone capabilites, which I think that it was relevant when they created the course, but for now isn't a big thing. I hope they could make these adjustments and the course will be very helpful for those like me who want to understand how Power BI works.

I currently work as a Business Analyst and one of my project involve building an Analytic Dashboard for Data Management for my company wherein Power BI was the Visualization tool in use. Before the course, I learnt the use of the tool informally e.g. through self-learning, crash courses, blog post and YouTube videos however, after taking this course, I have more confident and knows better the best way to apply them. I have also come to learn more features of Power BI Desktop as well as Service. Overall, I will recommend this course for a beginner. It is the one of the best way to shorten your Power BI learning curve.

I was really happy to take this course. I learnt a lot about the tool. My only query is that it is too focus on sales and revenues. I would have liked to have seen other topics in the examples.

This course was very informative and the instructor is punctual and gets to the point. This course has made me realize how powerful Power BI is and I have already started created reports and dashboards for the Business. Recommendations from me would be to give a more detail in data mining with DAX and more practical examples were the student needs to think for himself.

This course was very informative. I had some experience with Power BI before taking this course but taking this course made me realize how powerful Power BI is, all thanks to the very rich content of this course and excellent delivery by the instructors. I'll definitely recommend this course for anyone into data analytics even if you have no prior experience with Power BI.

Great introduction to PBI with an excellent 360 at all the functionalities. The lab needs to be updated as many tiles and options have changed in the desktop app which makes some of the exams questions hard to answer. Color saturation for instances is no longer available. Other than that everything is great.

I found this course very helpful in developing the basic Power BI skills I needed to get started - I really wish the last sections on mobile applications were part of a separate course and there would have been more content on advance analyzing and visualizing instead. Overall, a good starting point for people newer to PBI.

I think the course is simply excellent. It gives you all the relevant pieces of information. I am sure it must be taking a lots of effort to keep the course relevant at all points in time. And i believe it has been tested really well. I must congratulate the team creating this training. Thank you.

Great content - well presented - covered all areas. Labs were well thought out and covered all material learned. I would highly recommend it to anyone even if you have worked with Power BI before. Instructors all covered their areas well. The product is growing so much and becoming the go to tool of choice especially with all of the great mobile features.

Great course with useful examples and step-by-step Labs. Covers most of what you need to know to set you off to a good start with Power BI. The course does not cover DAX, which is a bit of a shame -- but I assume it would deserve a whole course by itself. Note: EdX embedded video player is not great (e.g. not the same shortcut as in YouTube)

Course is useful and gives many instruments to start working with this powerful tool as a professional, but part of the content is outdated, it needs at least to be aligned with the more important changes made to Power BI.

Overall a good course to start for beginners who want to start their career in Power BI. Some example on other information as to how do we design BI solutions for certain platforms in power BI will be helpful and also what coding language i need to learn to develop myself in Power BI. Where can i get all this information.

This course provide the content that I expected to build the establishment of using Power BI in work. Before taking this course, I didn't have formal BI experience because I'm working as a backend developer mostly. The cons of this course is some of the problem description of their assessment/lab part is ambiguous. I lost some point because I didn't realize it. Actually I can see some other people complain about this too on the forums. I "wasted" more time than I expected just because I want to make sure I'm 100% correct. Other than this problem, everything is fine and clear. I would also suggest that microsoft can provide starting files for each video content.
