About the Course

In this 2-hour long project-based course, you will learn the basics of using Power BI Desktop software. We will do this by analyzing data on credit card defaults with Power BI Desktop. Power BI Desktop is a free Business Intelligence application from Microsoft that lets you load, transform, and visualize data. You can create interactive reports and dashboards quite easily, and quickly. We will learn some of the basics of Power BI by importing, transforming, and visualizing the data. This course is aimed at learners who are looking to get started with the Power BI Desktop software. There are no hard prerequisites and any competent computer user should be able to complete the project successfully. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions....

Perfect Guided Project if you want to get yourself familiarize with working knowledge of PowerBI maybe for a specific task. However, for a detailed understanding, this may not be of much help.

I would like to suggest the instructor to improve the quiz provided in this guided project to add some challenges in attempting to challenge learners to next level. the quiz was very easy to be given a certificate. otherwise thank you!

The class was good but too short. You will have to complete another course in oder to get the basics and to the point where you can work on your own project. Coursera's MyCloud Workspace needs to be improved and have the bugs fixed.

The guided project virtual machine for the user doesnt load and that part of the course isnt as user friendly compared to other guided projects I have taken up before plus it needs to be refreshed in like every 5 mins or so

The data vanished when I once mistakenly closed the tab where the tool was open, and the file got corrupted, due to which i wasn't able to do all the tasks,

Un proyecto un poco pobre ya que es solo para la visualización. Tratas con datos sería entrar en realizar modelos de datos y ni abre esa pestaña.

It was really easy and could be potentially covered in a youtube video. It does serve as a good intro but not really worth it.
