Хороший курс, разбирается продукт в деталях и с разных сторон. После прохождения намного лучше понимаешь возможности, хочется использовать PowerBI чаще и чаще. Хорошо бы чтобы видео контент больше попадал в размеры экрана.

I would recommend this as a good course to get started with Power BI, and to get an overview of what extensibility and integration platform has to offer.

A good intorduction that requires that you get involved and take concrete steps to learn the basics in PowerBI. Does a good job ensuring you get a good overview of most of the capabilities and starts setting the right mindset for how to work with PowerBI.

Some content in chapter 7 is out of date. The work around is to used the Access DB from GitHub. However, that direction is not stated in the course. Having that information included in the modules that are affected would have saved a lot of Googling and would have probably led to a higher completion score.

Excellent course and very well presented. I did have prior experience with PowerBI but it is adding new features every month, some covered in this course. It is becoming one of the best BI tools.

I am an intern for an IT company, and I had no idea Power BI even existed. Taking this course gave me so much valuable knowledge on the program that I can apply to wow my bosses and take with me back to university so that I can present appealing visualizations backed up with sound data! I loved this course and loved that the content was taught in bite-sized portions. I definitely recommend for anyone; especially those who want to dive more into data analytics!

Clear and concise content with enjoyable questions/labs for knowledge testing. Visuals were a tremendous help. Wish there were a few additional assessments and activities included with each chapter. Even simple modifications to existing ones would help reinforce material. Overall extremely satisfied and would recommend to others - Thank you!

Great training, forces you to look at all the area of Power Bi (not just data & reporting), uses concrete example that you're likely to encounter in your work environment. Highly recommend to do the lab (even if you just want audit)

The course was great and well presented by the instructors. I have been using Power Bi for years and learned some new stuff so its definitely worth taking. I had no issues using the edX platform to work through the content, quizzes and lab exercises.

A very well thought out structure of the course. The progression was learner-friendly. The instructors were clear on their instructions and the files aligned with the instructions. It gives a 360 degrees overview for not a heavy user. There needs to be a version 2 that now covers creating measures (DAX) in depth.

Very comprehensive course on Power BI. There is no way any human could remember the plethora of details, so a written reference could serve better than 50-100 videos. Good reference library for the future. Labs are amazingly well designed, and in retrospect, I could have just skipped most videos and achieved most learning there.

This was a great course and well worth the time spent. Microsoft's Power BI tool is very rich and robust and this course did a nice job of diving into the product, providing good examples on how to use it, and enabling the student to have a platform by which they could start further building their skills and use the product in the real world. Nicely done Microsoft. Also a big fan of edX in general so having the course hosted on edX is extremely useful.

Course was well worth the time. Power BI is a product that can benefit organizations of all sizes and types. More time could be devoted to DAX and it's formulas. I have had a hard time finding quality training on that subject, and it is one of the keys to really getting the most out of Power BI.

Great course... I have already recommended this to a number of colleagues who are just starting to use Power BI within our company. We haven't really used the mobile aspect of Power BI but after reviewing the different features in the mobile app (like annotate and share) I am going to start to push that within our team.

This course was great to get me going on Power BI. I pitched the software to my boss before I really even knew what I was doing, or the incredible things Power BI is capable of... to my shock she said yes. I then had to figure out how to use it, which is where this course steps in. In a matter of an hour or so, I was able to put her request together, whereas before it was taking me days just to blindly "play" with the different features and try to get what I needed. I'd recommend this course to anyone!

As a consultant, I was doing research on Power BI for one of my clients. This course helped to solidify my knowledge of Power BI and provided some nice labs to help get some hands on experience without having to wade through a book.

This is mostly introductory course that would give you an idea of what you could do with Power BI. The course was really helpful for me to build the knowledge about Power Bi from a beginner’s perspective. The labs and quizzes were helpful knowledge base ‘trackers’. More exercises or labs in relation to features such as DAX would have been beneficial. The course could do with a little re-organisation as a topic is not always dealt with in one module. Overall I found this course to be functional and of benefit.

The course is not too well-organized, a lot of topics are covered multiple times. Prehaps that's because they're trying to update the course content as the Power Bi software is being developed, but in my opinion they're not really up-to-date with the course. Too much attention in this corurse is paid to super-easy and insignificant details such us "enter your credentials once again", "scroll through the reports and create another visual which you already did 100 times", "take a look at windows phone app for the third time in this course", but things that are REALLY important, such as DAX, Power Query M, are barely covered. So, this is mostly introductory course that would give you an idea of what you could do with Power BI, but there's not enough depth to start doing the real thing with the software.

It is very useful visualization tool, even more than Tableau. Microsoft is still working on it emphatically. It cloud-based tool since cloud became cheaper and cheaper than any other visualization tool. Modules are great to learn and deploy in your business.

I found this course very helpful as an introduction to using PowerBI. I had previously been using PowerBi over a few months to see if it fits in with our other applications at my place of work. I enjoyed the first 5 or 6 topics as they helped me use features of the product better then what I had been doing through my own trial and error. The remainder of the topics though were still interesting, but were more of just a follow these steps to get the result. The work load is not too hard, I think I took a couple of months to do the whole course, just doing a chapter when I had time available. But I did take my time doing tasks multiple times to try to cement things into my memory. A skilled IT user could probably do the whole course over a weekend. The course structure also seemed to flow quite well.

The course is not to challenging. It looks like Microsoft advertisment spot. Lot of outdated information. Not really worth the price of 100$. Can find lot of better stuff.

Thank you for bringing up this course. I am new to the data science subject and quite apprehensive because the track I am making is purely in Microsoft's perspective. But on the very bright side, PowerBI is amazing. It gets business intelligence endeavor so fun and provides ad-hoc answers to questions related to data in a rather insightful way.

The course on data analysis and visualisation using Power BI was really helpful for me to build the knowledge about the tool. I love the labs and the quizzes which tests your knowledge and understanding regarding specific topics. I would love to have more exercises or labs and that is my only concern. I being a non-IT person learnt a lot regarding this tool. Big thumbs up!
