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 has been a great introduction for me into Data Science and Visualizations. I am eager to learn more now that I have completed it! I can use this product in my day to day operations at the company I work for to improve workflows and create connections to data where there were none before. It is an excellent tool for business operations organization.

It's good overview if you have just started learning Power BI. I think more samples and tasks to be play around should be in the course. It's a bit tricky if you use it on work laptop to connect to database, set up personal gateway etc. Thanks

It was my first contact with Power BI and this course gives you the perfect overview. The only issue is if you work in a different version as me power bi 32 bit. Which sometimes difficult to follow the instructor course. Apart from that i really like it.

I have taken several sessions form udemy for tableau ,qlickview etc. Good thing is before showing any demo they first make sure that the same dataset/files are available to you. Over here I found very hard to comprehend as the instructor went on with their demo with some random datasets which we did not have. Recommend to give more info on datasets/setup before start of the demo.

This course will make you love Power BI, Great course and very cool delivery and hands on practicals through the labs session... I'd just plead that some more time extension after deadline could be given to participants who upgrade to get a certificate to complete the course due to tight work schedules for those who are working and have very little time to spare to take the course.

All you need to learn using Power BI. Exercises are easy to follow, maybe a bit too easy, because you hardly have to find things out, everything is spelled out for you.

Having never used Power BI, this course has taught me a lot on how to go about doing dashboards and visualisations. It is necessary to use this as part of my Data Science training.

Best way to learn for working people. Instructors are really good. Specially the lab practice and test patterns are very help full. But the gradation should be there in the certificate. Overall a great experience for me.

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.
