The content was excellent I had an issue with some of the labs with connectivity to the data sources. Otherwise the entire course was really well done and I highly recommend the offering.

This course covers the basics and opens possibilities for advanced manipulation which is really good. I find it rich with good content and I recommend it. I think it might take more time than estimated though.

The content: is light but informative,the diversity of the content makes it entertaining since you have practical part. The instructors: They're the first instructors for me on edX and I can say it's a good start. The provider: it's MICROSOFT! nothing to add :D

It is a good introduction to Power BI capabilities. It will be helpful for a project I am starting soon at work. However, i would have appreciated some lessons about the concepts and the structure behind the visualizations (the "theory" behind Power BI). As of now, the course is a kind of a showcase of what Power BI is capable of doing, rather than a thorough training course. The lessons about mobile are quite obvious and redundant. Also, some videos about PBI service are out of date (please fix). In general, it is worth spending some days on this course for getting started on this powerful and popular tool.

The course is OK for someone who is completely new to Power BI. Positive: Speaking loud and clear / Subtitles / Combination of teaching and videos about working with Power BI. Negative: The lessons/videos are not always in a logical structure. And some videos are in a different style (with different instructors) / For some exercises a PRO licence is needed.

I really enjoyed doing this quick crash course and overview of Power BI. I took a star off as I would have liked more labs on data mining, building relationships in your data and then creating visualizations but otherwise I really enjoyed it. Thanks!

This was a great course all around. I picked up the tool at a quick pace. The videos were a good quality, the modules were relevant to the course title and also gave some good exposure to the development side of Analytics and Application programming.

A good introductory course, it is unfortunate that Power BI Service and Desktop is updating too fast for the course content to reflect the tool exactly. I do miss a bit of Querying and DAX which can be covered in a bit more depth.

Great introductory course. The course really shows the capabilities of the tool and the many options you have with Power BI for your business. Would have liked more cases/ exercises to do rather than quizzes as the practical labs are what really test what you've learnt in the quizzes.

Liked the course, easy to follow. Some exercises were more difficult than I expected, but glad it was challenging at times. Other sections were easier, which was also nice. Finished course for certificate in a time crunch, but will go back to reference videos as I work through projects, and may re watch some/most videos.

Nice overview course! Becomes out of date a little since platform is being developing rapidly. For example topic about content packs and groups should be replaced with topic about apps. SSAS connector has also been replaced with on premises gateway. So you need sometimes update this course. And would be great to have another course on dax or M.

This course is excellent to start with and the instructions are very easy to follow. I would recommend this course to my colleagues and folks. One Suggestion is to update the field or icon names to match with the latest version of Power BI.

Course was very good which provided real examples and the labs were overall a good test of what you learn in the course. Parts of the course are no longer relevant e.g. Content Packs are no longer a Power BI feature as power BI apps has superseded them. The video format, online tests and labs worked very well and it was easy to drop in and out of the course and complete them when convenient. Although I had previously completed a 2 day classroom based training on PowerBI I found this course better, and I learned more from it.

It was very informative and useful and progressed at a comprehend-able pace. I started from basic to no knowledge in Power Bi and I am now confident in applying the tool in my work. I an more than eager to leave Excel fro some of my work to use this dynamic tool. I however had one issue with logging onto the Azure SQL Database

Exactly what I was looking for to get started with Power BI! Free to audit is great when you don't really need a certificate. The videos are short and easy to understand, but the labs are really nice to have for applying your knowledge.
