Supercharge Power BI: Power BI is Better When you Learn to Write DAX covers the same learning experience as covered in my other book Supercharge Excel, and hence it can be considered a sister book. These two books use the same content, teaching, and practice format but with different software versions, as indicated in the titles. You should choose the best book for you given which software product you want to use.

Supercharge Power BI is an updated version of my original book using Power BI Desktop. This book teaches readers how to get the most out of Power BI by learning the DAX language. If you are already competent in the DAX content from my book Supercharge Excel, then there is no need to read this book.  Of course if you want to familiarize with Power BI Desktop Interface and repeat the exercises, then it could be good for you.

Bonus Offer*:  If you purchase this book from this shop here, you will get an immediate download of both eBooks (Supercharge Power BI and Supercharge Excel).   The paperback version will be dispatched the same business day for delivery in 2-3 days.

Product Description

What is DAX?

Data analysis expressions (DAX) is the data modelling language of Excel Power Pivot and Power BIDAX languageand DAX functions are the same in both Excel and Power BI and hence the knowledge is transferable between the two. The only difference is getting familiarised with the corresponding interfaces.

Simply reading a regular book is normally not enough to help users to learn DAX skills – you need to complete the exercises and get plenty of practice to make the transition. This book is written to give you exactly that – hands-on practice. Inside you will find explanation of the concepts, sample exercises and then practice questions and answers to maximise learning retention and experience.

Once you have read my book and completed the exercises there will be no stopping you on your path to DAX, Power Pivot and Power BI super stardom. And, you will become a data modeller to get the most of self-service BI.

Power BI Desktop and Excel Power Pivot

Power BI is the self-service BI tool from MicrosoftPowerBI.com became generally available in July 2015 and is following a rapid monthly development cycle – the pace of change is quite astonishing. There is no doubt that Excel users will increasingly want to leverage the sharing and modern visualisation capabilities of PowerBI.com, and learning to write DAX is the foundation of that journey.

The DAX skills that you learn are fully transferable between Excel Power Pivot and Power BI Desktop.

About the Author (me, Matt Allington)

I have taken my 30+ years experience using Excel and also my experience in teaching live Power Pivot classes and distilled this knowledge into a book that will help any Excel user get started with Power Pivot, DAX and Power BI.  The challenge with Power Pivot is that it is completely different to the rest of Excel.  As a result, you can’t just ‘incrementally learn’ this stuff off the base of your existing Excel skills – you really need to do some formal learning to get started. This book is exactly what you need to get that start.
