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.

Prior to the course I had no experience using Power BI. Now I am confident I will be able to produce very insightful and engaging reports for my clients using the tool. The course was thorough and concepts are explained well. Some knowledge check questions were ambiguous (open to interpretation) and the assessments a little too easy perhaps but they did help embed knowledge. I would not hesitate to recommend this course to anyone.

Overall a very good experience. Sometimes difficult to access certain resources and would be helpful to be able to apply data more relevant to my needs. However it was a brilliant course that has really expanded my skillset to assist me with my tasks.

Wonderful Course. Please focus more on the desktop version. Also readable materials in pdf should be provided. The aspect on R, Python Integration was not extensively captured. This needs to be captured well enough next time.

I think the course on edx needs to be reviewed and aligned with the latest version of powerbi. I used the latest version for this course and most of the features on the edx version are not on the latest version which leaves the student a bit confused.

The course has been of real relevance for my daily work. Power BI is becoming more and more popular, which is a good add to your skillset nowadays. The instructors guide you step to step through the course material. If you have any questions, there is a community forum as well to get your answers. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that is looking for a great tool for reporting and visualizing your data!

Instructors and course structure is really good. More assignments to try would be good and also increase the complexity of assignments to encourage own research and thought process. As some one else noted, topics on data mining and predictive analysis etc. would be useful if included.

This is one of the courses that has helped me to know more about Power BI tool very fast. Power Bi has really became easy to use for me. The instructional videos are actually quite good, and while the transcripts are somewhat difficult to read, they are a great way to segment the video. Just one thing, the developers should consider people using Ubuntu also so that they can be able to access Power BI in their machines.

Let's get the complaints out of the way first: The current course content - both instructional videos and graded quizzes and assignments - is not updated to the latest version of Power BI Service or Desktop, and many of the mandatory questions are near impossible to answer by using the newest versions that you need to sign up for when progressing through the course. It feels like the course sets you up to fail in the graded assignments, which is made even more annoying when you have to pay 99USD to participate. Some of the assignment questions are either ambiguous and unclear, while others simply have below expected quality of grammar. Complaints over. The instructional videos are actually quite good, and while the transcripts are somewhat difficult to read, they are a great way to segment the video and find "that one time in the video" you are looking for.

Personally I think it has been difficult to contact the course staff, but seeing as I live in the GMT +1 time zone, it is probably nighttime/early morning in the USA whenever I am active, so this is understandable. Would not recommend anyone to sign up for the course for academic purposes until it is updated. If needed for a certification, the course is passable, but be aware of high levels of frustration due to the aforementioned outdated-ness.

The course is easy to follow, good intro and exercises will bring you fast up to speed. The content is slightly outdated though, as the tool changes/improves constantly, but still relevant and full of insight. Some videos were added to show new features, but old content was not removed, so you will find same topics to be explained twice in different places. Also some added videos were presented by a not native English speaker and hard to understand at first. The main presenter was excellent! Thanks to the course provider for allowing free access,I cannot imagine they charge for a content that is not up to date..

The content is awesome and the instructors were very good, but one instructor needs to improve her presentation skills. The provider edx is great and it was very comfortable to have the course using edx. Another problem that the course material needs to be updated as new updates is released and some things has been changed after the material is made so I hope the new version of the course will be updated for the latest updates of power BI - here I am talking especially about power BI apps and app workspace as these have been introduced instead of groups and content packs -

Very good course. Covers almost all the critical capabilities of the Power BI and its application in an enterprise. Microsoft's team who developed the product were tutoring the class. Exercises are well thought through. Highly recommend this comprehensive course.

I would recommend this course for getting to know not just Power BI but also the world of Business Intelligence. The examples seem realistic, and the exercises are useful in reinforcing the course content. The instructors are good communicators, to the point that you could watch most of the videos at 1.25X speed. A background in working with and managing data helps greatly with the course but is not essential. Before starting I would seriously consider paying for and hopefully publishing the certificate on your LinkedIn profile. The only negative note is that some of the screens/examples presented are becoming out of date due to the steady changes of the Power BI product (and Azure), but the basics are the same. Also having access to a Microsoft 365 subscription helps greatly, although there are instructions as to how to obtain a trial/temporary account.

This course was great for delving deeper into using Power Bi to build reports for my department. I had to find some work arounds due to problems loading some of the lab files and restricted excel version i had but managed to figure it out. It might be a good idea to look at updating this course in line with updates made to Power Bi. Will highly recommend this course as a starting point to using Power Bi.

I found really useful this course, I learned many things from this tools that I will work on my daily basis on work. I am really satisfy with all the content and the assesment. I just want to say as a point of improvemnt that few points in PBI Service module are out of date, but I could solve the assesment thanks to the Community Forum. I will recommend this course to my collegues! Thank you for all!

I really enjoyed this course and found it easy to follow and apply; clear and concise! A few improvement points: - Better graphics on visualisations as it was difficult to see. Or zoom in more - Do not spoon feed the steps for the labs; use an appendix rather than a step by step guide - More emphasis on DAX, API as it was glossed over very quickly; maybe even worth starting a new course on it
