DAX Books

SCPBI 3rd Edition
Cover of Supercharge Excel

Your registration includes digital copies of Matt Allington’s books, Supercharge Power BI and Supercharge Excel.

You can choose to use either book for your DAX learning. DAX skills are transferable between Power BI Desktop and Excel Power Pivot, with the difference being UI.

Power BI Desktop is more advanced than Excel in that it might include new DAX functions before Excel. But the DAX concepts remain the same.

The books will help you with more illustrations and practice exercises with DAX.
