How to get started with Power BI

Power BI is one of the top data visualization tools to have in your arsenal as a data analyst. By mastering Power BI, data analysts can efficiently process, transform, and visualize data, enabling them to uncover valuable insights and trends. Power BI's interactive dashboards and reports empower analysts to present complex information in a user-friendly manner, fostering effective communication and understanding among stakeholders. Additionally, Power BI's integration with other Microsoft tools and its wide adoption in the industry make it a valuable skill that can boost a data analyst's career prospects and opportunities.

Here are my favorite FREE resources to get started with Power BI:
