Enjoyed the course and the content. Instructors all very good. Only downside was some of the Lab exercises didn't run exactly as expected and it required a bit of digging to correct.

Great course for starting to use POWER BI. I like the combination of short video clips with quizzes and labs. However I would have liked to learn more about DAX.

I found this course to be a fabulous way to provide you with the skills so you can start working in Power BI immediately. I had little exposure to Power BI and this course filled in all the steps I was missing or unaware of. I agree with the other comments that more DAX exposure would be beneficial.

Best course to learn to visualize your data. The instructors are excellent and give you in-depth knowledge of the contents. The Lab exercises are planned well to have you the practice on your own.

Este curso ha sido excelente, en verdad te da un muy buen overview de todo lo que existe y las funcionalidades que este programa tiene. Deberían de dar unos ejemplos más difíciles con DAX para poder entender aún más, pero creo que eso ya va del lado de cada uno de los que quiere aprender.

This course was very organized and easy to follow. Great course to fully understand the full capability of the tool. Good experience working with the developer tool and API.

For a beginner using Power BI I think the course was great, great content and easy to digest because of the great class format (not excessively long videos and entertaining labs)... I think it´s a perfect way to get started with Power BI The first 3 modules were the best content wise in my opinion (beginer opinion) and I think it was cool you showed us a glimpse of more sofisticated stuff you coulld do with Power BI....thanks

Great course, but a few things - 1) the sections with more than a dozen 3-minute you-tube videos are a bit clunky to get through - fullsize the vid, shut off the transcript (or you can barely read the screen), watch 3 mins, shrink vid, scroll to click next and do it all over again and again... 2) it's becoming very outdated (I'm writing 3 years on from their creation) in ways that make it difficult to complete, and - 3) certain sections (developer and API, for example) are way beyond what I think many of us take the course for or even will have access to and theses could be offered as extra information instead.

I think the course covered a lot of contents, with enough hints on where to find information about the parts which were not covered. --- When following this course, please do try to download (some of) the examples before starting the lessons. In most chapters there are lots and lots of video's before you start the labs. So for many learners it might be useful to have some material you can use to get some hands-on experience while following the range of video's. However, this is a self-paced-course, so (with some effort) it's not difficult to follow the course in a way which fits your personal style-of-learning. --- I found it very disappointing that some of the graded exercises required a pro license (even when you already payed for the course). However, this gave a great opportunity to apply Power BI ourselves to find the answers to the graded questions. So in the end it gave us some extra exercises and extra hands-on ex...

Overall strong content, but dramatically varying levels of depth, and relevance. Short videos each burn a lot of overhead time in intro & outro. Lab questions focused on picking a # off a dashboard seem designed to prove completion more than reinforce learning and problematic as versions change. Still happy to have taken and designers welcome to ping me for more specific suggestions.

The content is somewhat outdated. This even applies to the exams which cannot be taken as described. The transcript of the videos is in some cases not according to the audio of the video. The transcript contains errors (pain <> pane) which schould not be present is someone had controlled the texts.

Each unit has a huge amount of information, after which you make a small laboratory. I get very tired in the online courses that took a lot of time to do exercises, and at the time of doing the exercises I need to review the classes more than once, because I already forgot some things. The course is a step-by-step tutorial, imagine watching more than 10 classes with numerous processes to learn. I suggest that the staff who organizes the course fracture it with much more exercises. I see that in Havardx, Babson and MITx there is a concern to transmit information and then we do some kind of exercise to assimilate and learn what was taught. I had to cancel the course when I realized that the method took a long time. I would love to learn Power BI.

Instructors and provider were great. The content was, in some places, dated or, in one or two, sufficiently out of date as to be outright wrong. In addition, the English in the transcript was sketchy in many cases and the English in other places (not transcribed) was often grammatically incorrect. The course needs more frequent updating and a supervising content editor.

Very clear and structured course. I thought the content in the course is really useful for new users of PowerBI. However, there was some repetition in the course and some content could have been a bit more condensed.

This course is definitely a great introduction to Power BI, especially for new learners. I hope there will be a follow up course that will include more advanced use of the tools, such as modelling and statistical analysis and I would also recommend that the videos and tutorials are updated more frequently. Overall, great course!

The course content is great, I would like to suggest that more questions are added to test the knowledge and in terms of the lab works you must describe a scenario and the learner needs to come up with the solution just to enhance the creativity side.Perfect instructor as well, it shows that they know what they are doing.

Though the content seems a tad bit backlogged as newer updates to the application and services have been made...The Instructors appear well versed and the provider's support was valuable...I'd no doubt implement the MS packages moving forward.

All great content that was condensed in digestible modules. The pacing was great, and it didn't go into overly high detail. My only suggestion is to please update some of the videos, as there have been updates made on Power BI (some of the videos date back do 2015 and 2016).

Through this course, i have gained deep understanding of the fundamentals and literature behind the power bi application. I have already started the test phase for using this application as my analytics tool. I recommend that this is a great way to know and understand about power bi and its applications in the real world environment.

The course material was not easy to follow. The version of Power BI was also different from that in the videos, and it became difficult to follow what the instructors were doing. It would be helpful if they slowed down, or explained what they were doing at times.

Great Course and nicely organized :) The version of Power BI in the video was quite old so when I was doing labs on the latest version of Power BI faced some difficulty. Only suggestion would be to add a section for the latest features every quarter/half-yearly.

This course is the best and most comprehensive I have found on Power BI. The only suggestion I have for Microsoft is to provide updates to the course as Power BI changes. Power BI is changing all of the time and some of the modules were slightly out of date and this affected the ability to do the assessments. Otherwise I found this course of great value! I would recommend it to anyone wanting to gain a good coverage of all of the features Power BI has to offer.

Learned a lot about this BI tool which I fond is easy to follow the course contents and videos. As BI changes so fast, the training videos require to update. Most importantly, Administrators need to respond more actively when some issue highlighted in the discussion. Wish, more and more people will learn this Power BI. Thanks, Instructors. Rgds..Aziz

The material covered was very good. My only issue was that because of the time from when the course was created and now, a lot of the web pages have changed. Because of that, I wasn't able to answer some questions because I couldn't find where the material had landed.
