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 Parts of the course are no longer relevant e.g. Content Packs are no longer a Power BI feature as power BI apps has superseded them.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

Nice course with in depth details needed for any beginners. Labs are equally interesting and there is no pressure to pay for Certificate course though I would like to do that as it worth investment.

It was a great experience and the course and content is very intutive. It would have been better if you provide the downloadable content for the section Developer API.

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.

I've been impressed by the structure of the course - the video modules are the key, I think. Being short bite-sized pieces of information, self-contained and part of the same lab objective, really confirmed for me that I could complete each video, then lab, plus have the ability to search for and review the content I needed for the knowledge checks. The frequent updates to Power BI result in the course content becoming out-of-date quickly, but the construction of the course is such that a new video could easily be recorded to replace the older material. The certificate option is fantastic, too, as I appreciate opportunities to improve and add marketable skills!

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.

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)

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.
