    Best of all Power BI courses I ve taken.

    It appears to be a very good course so far. I appreciate that he separated the perceptron from the normal NN whereas many people continue the misnomer or wrong concept calling multi-layered NNs "multi-level perceptrons" which sort of creeps me out a bit. Perceptrons don't use your normal back propagation. They're entirely different. They're based on a different philosophy altogether.
    I like the clarity of the instructor's voice here and his advice on the order in which to learn things. This should be very helpful for learners who want to set up rubricks for themselves to follow and make sure they can learn each area well in the most effective order. Often it takes hearing things from the perspective of multiple teachers. It's easy to get stuck on some points and have trouble understanding it until a person relaxes and listens to the subject matter being taught by someone else. That does not mean the instructor is bad, but rather that sometimes a person can get stuck and hearing the same thing in the same way over again will not provide the breakthrough needed, but hearing the material from someone else may do the trick.
    All in all, I think this instructor is one of the best ones I have heard in this field. I used Andrew Ng's and Geoffrey Hinton's rigorous courses to learn this field as well as I could and am about to finish Ng's courses and am part way through Hinton's course and need to finish it by this coming October 19. So I cannot afford to get stuck very long. But I get stuck anyway once in awhile. Most of the time I can just push through but I want perfect scores throughout with perhaps a few near perfect scores. I am happy to have several courses like this on the side both for review or reinforcement of what I have already learned, and for making it easier to get the breakthroughs I need when things get tough. Andrew Ng's YOLO2 assignment was a little sticky, for example. Great assignment, but a little tough, and it's mostly because I'm not that good at tensorflow or Keras yet.
    I'll feel I am strong when I can go through courses like this and pretty well ace everything in them. And then I can do the same with Kaggle and projects from other sources until I can face any ML challenge confidently and competently.
    I am very thankful for these courses What are commonly used convolutional filters.
    Now I have just enough information to be really dangerous. The course covered all the major components of Power BI in enough detail for a newby like myself, that had never used PBI, to hit the ground running. I thought the pace was perfect and Chris did an excellent job of thoroughly explaining concepts and walking step by step through each lecture. He includes a lot of tips and best practices which are valuable moving forward. I highly recommend this course if your new to PBI. Thumbs up!!!

    Focus on Fundamentals

    Very good course for those that really want to get the right focus on fundamentals. It is a great course for clearly highlighting the importance of understanding the mathematics and the structure of the image processing.
    I’ve found this audiobook to be extremely helpful, and i feel it exceeds most courses because it has the focus on the frameworks required to make the information useful over and over again in areas related to my own interests.

    structure is exceptional

    With no prior knowledge of Power BI, this course structure is exceptional in its delivery with clear instructions and depth of explanations. It is information overload without chaos!

    Course is exhaustive

    This is Awesome...... and lovely the way Anthony took us all the way in Power BI service and data modelling. I thought the course is exhaustive initially but trust me when you are through the course you never feel that. I really enjoyed. Had to appreciate in giving specific attention to DBMS concepts like Cardinality, Relationships

    I'm so happy

    Not surprised at all, in fact more delighted having listened your "Analyzing Data with Power BI" and "Machine Learning Python: 2 Manuscripts - Artificial Intelligence Python and Reinforcement Learning with Python" course's seperately , I'm so happy I took this one as well. Thanks for the depth and the knowledge.

    I am satisfied

    The best for understanding the fundamentals of computer vision with deep learning. I am satisfied with the mathematical concepts explained in the course and the amount of practicals.

    Liked the additional material

    I know I did not meet all the prerequisites outlined by the instructor, but I was still able to follow along quite well - and especially liked the additional material in the appendix. While I've sat through all the lectures once, I'm actually looking forward to running through them a 2nd time for more in depth practice.

    Materials were professionally done.

    The material covered was more than sufficient to get a good start on learning how to use Power BI and being able to translate that into a useful real life business report. Materials were professionally done.

    Basics of data and text mining

    This is a great audio book with Basics of data and text mining, data visualization, and business intelligence. I like the variety of examples, the implementation is about analyzing data with Power BI and Convolutional neural networks in Python. Overall a good course. I learned a few tips.

    So much information

    I would GREATLY SUGGEST this audiobook for any person wanting to get under the hood of Power BI Desktop. So much information is relayed and shared in each section that I have gone through parts more than once and learnt something new every time. Thank you for such an in-depth dissection for a first time user. I will continue to reference this course.

    Great job with Python

    I am 3/4 done and find it fantastic. The classes are very well organized and Anthony is giving so many important tips. Great job so far with Python and computer vision

    Awesome Anthony

    I really suggest this audible for anyone who have never worked in BI tools. Anthony is awesome, he is to the point and explained the topics very well.
    It clear and easy to understand. I have learnt a lot. Things l did not consider as useful before.
    Thanks both Williams !! ;

    Covered everything

    This course provides a detailed overview of what someone starting out needs to learn in order to feel like they have a solid foundation to build on. A lot of Power BI courses on the Audible platform seem to break into multiple courses what Anthony has explained in one comprehensive study package. I found Anthony's teaching style to be reassuring and paced very well for my comprehension. I will feel reassured coming back to review aspects of the lectures as I try some of this stuff out in the real world.
    Of course, it's unlikely the course will have covered everything there is to know on Power BI but again, for what it is titled as it fulfils its remit and I feel equipped to push on & learn lots more. Would take other courses by this instructor.

    Learned quite a bit math knowledge.

    The course is well organized and I've learned quite a bit math knowledge. Maybe the assignment is too easy because the solution is given. Very good explanation about deep learning.

    With real world situations

    Surprisingly enough, I also esp. liked the the lectures in the Appendix because they deal with real world situations. One lecture was the difference between academic, practical, and professional settings.

    How to use MNIST vision dataset

    Effective mix of practical examples and detailed theoretical explanations of how to use MNIST vision dataset. I had a really great time listening the course topics of Conceptual, logical, and physical data models.

    My fifth buy

    Once again I have to emphasize the extremely high quality of Anthony Williams courses (this is my fifth): all the key subjects are explained in detail, but never with one word too many. He manages to keep the interest high throughout the course, never goes so fast to lose his learners, nor slow enough to become redundant. Excellent is the only suitable description!

    You can prove your skills

    Excellent course! Everything is well covered, and the practical examples let you experience the potential of the tool so you can prove your skills in a real world scenario. Will definately recommend it.
