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.

This course is not up to date with the latest Power BI interface. I got many points taken off my grade due to minor things. For example; I lost a point because my answer was "0.4" but the answer the AI wanted was "0.44", however on the actual Power BI software, the application rounded the number to "0.4". This was just one of the many problems I have with this course, but many of my problems are caused by the lack of an up to date visual explanation and walk through tutorial.

Overall excellent! Will was great, but cannot say the same about the rest (well they were ok - cannot take high pitch voice of one presenter :o() Some duplicate videos (~3), many verbal errors (but acceptable and sometimes funny), but no errors in material (well some have changed now on the links provided). Overall I learned a lot. I know excel and BO (Business Objects), hence it was easy to follow, but speaking a little slowly would have helped surely Overall thanks for the training, the examples and LABs were really useful to help me remember what I've learned. Thank you very much.

This is generally a great course and I would recommend it. Unfortunately it needs to be updated more regularly. The UIs are slightly different than those shown in the course and one of the labs requires that you have Silverlight which is almost impossible to get on a current Windows 10 machine (I tried for an hour).

The course started off great until I got to Lab 5 question 2 where the system required the installation of Silverlight (a now-unsupported browser extension). I downloaded it and applied it to Chrome, attempted in Firefox, Edge, and IE - the dashboard simply would not load making it impossible to complete this section of the course. Guesswork and research worked in my favor, however if someone actually wants to learn and do well on this course, this functionality (which appears to have been an issue for two years and remained unaddressed) will become a problem. In addition, there were a handful of questions along the way that appeared to be partial (perhaps legacy?) questions that asked you to do certain things only to result in no question to answer, just move along to the next step.

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've been working professionally with different BI tools for several years and wanted to get into Power BI. The instructors are very clear and the labs are pretty straight forward. Would recommend this course to anyone interested in using Power BI as it's a really powerful tool.

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.
