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.

The course is well structured and explained with practical hands on examples that get the concepts home. Power BI is fast becoming a great tool for the top management. I can't wait to put the tool into action in real world scenarios!

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.

It's a great course. It has allowed me to clarify the ideas of PowerBI, especially the initial processing of data from various sources. I recommend it if you need to use PowerBI for Business Intelligent.

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.

A complete guide to the power BI experience. The rest is up to you to explore the tool and its features but this series is a good start. The instructor from Microsoft know their product and you see that they love and care for it.

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and gives many instruments to start working with this powerful tool as a professional, but part of the content is outdated, it needs at least to be aligned with the more important changes made to Power BI.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

Not happy: - 0 support - assessments were very easy, because the instructions how to complete them were already provided, so you don't need to know much - a lot of technical issues

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.
