Since I have experience in ETL knowlege, this course helped me to cross skill myself in visualization of data. Ease of the content and instructor made me to learn the course easily and efficiently. Waiting to learn more skills like this by Microsoft.

Very good course. Did for the data science track. I think it has more visualizations than Highcharts. Thankfully Power BI has a developer API. The only issue I faced was on the security. Could not do the lab because I am not an admin at my company.

I absolutely loved the course and the presenters as well as being able to use Edx to complete it for free. The content was great except for a few times where the information or features in the application/service did not match up with where it was in the videos. I bombed unit 6 because of this reason and had a major delay in completing a lab in an earlier unit. Also, the Microsoft website does not match up with where things were in the content as well so some degrees. It's time to update a few of the videos.

Good course - Beginner to Proficiency level. Prior experience in any other Visualization tool makes it easier. Nice and easy tool to learn. Widely used these days. Would recommend to others.

Great course, easy-understandable content, good teachers. Really impressive program for me, with minimum efforts you'll get beautiful reports. Will definitely help you in your professional life if you do analysis and visualizations. After you finished with the course, you'd better to practice yourself, to use these skills automatically. And yes, would be great to study a course about DAX

This course has given me a solid foundation in learning Power BI from scratch. The content covers everything from editing a table, performing calculations and measures, to creating a report, then a dashboard. It also goes into detail on how to use Power BI online and the various collaboration methods. The instructors (both Will and Amanda and the third instructor) are all very engaging, and the video lengths are perfect- rarely more than 3 minutes. In response to many reviews stating that some content is outdated, this is to be expected as Power BI updates very regularly. However I had little to no difficulty in completing the labs, and there is guidance on the discussion forum and it is easy to ask for help there too. I have already started implementing what I have learned at work, so I am grateful for this great course. Thank you.

Once the version tool of power BI is often updated since the course was released some of the features presented in the course are not there or are changed which turns some Lab exercises undoable, to be honest.

It is a fundamental course on Power BI. I have worked with Tableau and Microstrategy, and I can see Power BI is a very Powerfull tool. Instructors are good, but there is one as a stutterer and listening is a little uncomfortable sometimes. Anyway they explain very well the topics.

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.

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.
