How is This Book Different to “Learn to Write DAX”?
Learn to Write DAX was first released in December 2015 when Power BI was just a fledgling product. Learn to Write DAX teaches readers how to use Power Pivot using Excel 2013 and also provides a guided path to migrate those skills to Power BI. My new book Supercharge Power BI: Power BI is Better When you Learn to Write DAX covers the same learning experience as covered in my first book 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.

Feedback from Readers.
“I purchased your eBook last Saturday and I want to let you know that I have learned more in the last 96 hours than I have in the last 3 months. I have a number of books on DAX, but since I am a novice your book has begun to provide the basics and increased an understanding in a structured manner.” Kevin
“I am greatly enjoying working through your book, “Learn to Write DAX”. I am wrapping up Chapter 8 right now and it is in my opinion the best resource out there for teaching someone how to actually integrate DAX skills into a project, incorporating all of the necessary elements and skills as opposed to many of the other “piece meal” instructional resources available that although good, teach individualized concepts but lack the integration of the pieces into a coherent whole.” Brian
