    Great course - Thanks


    I bought this course a year ago as a part of a bundle.
    This week Jan 2021 I joined a job where this is a required skill.
    I completed it this weekend and now I am ready to face the task with my new skill.
    Great instructor I loved her English and her knowledge.

    Excellent Overview


    The instructor does not waste time getting too far into details and provides a very informative presentation that gives you a quick overview of what Power BI for Desktop can do. I found her instruction easy to follow and the speed of the presentation was perfect for those who can quickly grasp a concept and put it to use. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants a quick overview without going into too much detail.
