Course Overview

Prerequisite for the course: Power Query and Data Modeling DAX (Data Analysis Expressions) is a formula and query language used in Power BI to create calculated columns, measures, and custom tables. Knowing how to use DAX will take your Power BI analysis skills to the next level. In this course, we will show you how to create custom functions, which will help you build sophisticated business reports in Power BI. DAX is easy to learn, especially if you have used Microsoft Excel in the past, as it includes some of the same functions. However, DAX also contains several functions that make the work with relational data easier.

I give 4 stars as, if you remove all the clutters, it is a course geared towards experienced users. The name with "introduction" is quite misleading. Other than this, good content and a lot I took away (again, best enjoyed if one is not new to DAX!)

“In this course, we are going to introduce you to some of the most useful DAX functions and will teach you how to write your own DAX measures. At the end, you will no longer need to rely on the finance department to give you the numbers for this or last month. Now, you can do that using DAX formulas.”
