Course Description

Hear why this is one of the TOP-RATED Excel courses on Udemy, and the #1 Excel Power Query + Excel Power Pivot course:
"I am a self-taught Excel Power Query user and it took me a while to understand what each tool does and how it interacts with others. Thanks to your introduction I finally nailed it in a very clear, unambiguous way. You helped me build a method that I can confidently apply to my data in Excel. Thank you so much!"
-Francesca C.
"I'm less of an expert at breathing than Chris is at Excel. This course is thorough and well-planned, and he presents in a manner that simplifies the complicated. Well worth your time if you want to master Excel power query and power pivot!"
-Tim B.
"I'm geeking out, this is so cool. Where has this been all my life???"
-Karen P.
This course introduces Microsoft Excel's powerful data modeling and business intelligence tools: Power Query, Power Pivot, and Data Analysis Expressions (DAX). If you're looking to become a power Excel user and absolutely supercharge your Excel analytics game, this course is the A-Z guide that you're looking for.
I'll introduce the "Power Excel" landscape, and explore what these Excel tools are all about and why they are changing the world of self-service business intelligence. Together, we'll walk through the Excel BI workflow, and build an entire Excel data model from scratch:
  • First we'll get hands-on with Power Query; a tool to extract, transform, and load data into Excel from flat files, folders, databases, API services and more. We'll practice shaping, blending and exploring our project files in Excel's query editor, and create completely automated loading procedures inside of Excel with only a few clicks.
  • From there we'll dive into Data Modeling 101, and cover the fundamentals of database design and normalization (including table relationships, cardinality, hierarchies and more). We'll take a tour through the Excel data model interface, introduce some best practices and pro tips, and then create our own relational database to analyze throughout the course.
  • Finally, we'll use Power Pivot and DAX to explore and analyze our Excel data model. Unlike traditional Excel Pivot Tables, Power Pivot allows you to analyze hundreds of millions of rows across multiple data tables (inside of Excel!), and create supercharged calculated fields using a formula language called Data Analysis Expressions (or "DAX" for short). We'll cover basic DAX syntax, then introduce some of the most powerful and commonly-used functions -- CALCULATE, FILTER, SUMX and more.
If you're ready to take your Excel game to new heights and join the leading edge of analytics & business intelligence, this course is for you. It's time to stop fighting with tedious, manual tasks and struggling with "old-school" Excel; join me on this journey and emerge a certified excel analytics NINJA.
See you in there!
-Chris (Founder, Excel Maven & Maven Analytics)

You'll need a PC version of Excel that is compatible with Power Pivot (Excel 2010 with plug-in, Excel 2013, Excel 2016, or Excel 2019 Standalone, Office 365 Pro Plus, Enterprise E3/E5, Office Professional 2016, etc.)

Easy to follow. however, I'll be really nice to get the answers to allexercises as sometimes they could go wrong if the ropes are not shown exacty as it is. Furthermoe, I saw some new measures when the teacher were showing some examples whixh I never came across, sosharing the original project and be available to dowload willbe a great idea to reflect on what needs to be recap.

Chris is describing everything as a professional. He is very articulate so it is easy to understand what he says. The functions are described nicely as well. So far I've learnt a lot from this course.

By Dediggs on 4 months ago

Excellent course! Very detailed information regarding Power Excel and it's features. Love the detail regarding DAX formulas. Plan to move on to Power BI Training even though I have taken the training from different instructor before. I'm sure Chris will help me go even further in my quest for deeper knowledge of data analytics.

The comments I made on the preceding course also apply to this course.

As always a really good, well explained course with terrific resources which can be used to refer back to as and when needed. I really like the delivery of the courses by Maven, they are quickly becoming my go to provider on Udemy!

Chris is such a legend and rock star when it comes to explaining the concepts . His teaching method is amazing as no matter how hard and tough the concept is to grasp he explains it clean and nice by giving great simple examples and piece by piece he breaks and defines the concepts. His English and pace is also great for every one to understand easily. Also his materials are great for practice.He is the teacher everyone needs. Wonderful course for people who are looking to gain advance excel skills specially to work with large data sets to clean transform and analyse. I had no interest in power BI but halfway through the course i was fascinated and enrolled in the power bi course as well.

By Matija Sraga on a month ago

Very clear explanation and guidance. Huge recommendation to anyone looking to master Excel and push it to the next level.

By Richard Arnold on 2 months ago

This is a fantastic course. Having read a book about power pivot and power query already, many of those concepts only sunk in after doing this course. Highly recommended

By Mary Morrissey on 6 months ago

This is a great course to get an overview of Power Query, Data Modeling, Power Pivot and DAX. Chris does a fantastic job of breaking topics down in a straight forward, non-tech way. The homework assignments and quizzes work really well to ensure the learning sticks. The only thing I would have liked is a dashboard example or Power BI sample of what we can aspire to complete after the training. They can be screenshots of 2 or 3 different layouts based on the FoodMart data that we built in the course. That would have made it a 5/5 for me. I feel like I had great ingredients, made an awesome cake, topped it with rich creamy frosting but had no sprinkles to make it visually appealing to eat. Otherwise, I learned a lot and I'm looking forward to using these tools with my own data. Thanks, Chris.

By Rocio S Lopez on 2 months ago

I raelly apreciated the clear voice and examples, plus the few jokes I could catch along the course. Would totally recommend taking it if you're 100% new in PowerPivot.PS: I would NOT take lightly that if you're not from the US you might have a few (several) issues with dates, currency and numbers in general (but, then you can be a LOCALE expert)

Veramente ben fatto, molto oltre le aspettative.Con i file di supporto, le slides, gli esercizi ed i quiz i risultati si vedono praticamente subito. Superconsigliato!
