Most Helpful Customer Reviews

There is a certain niche audience for this book: intermediate to advanced excel users who aren't necessarily BI/datawarehousing types. If you are a fairly basic excel user, this would not be a book to start with. You should already know vlookups, pivot tables, etc. before getting into PowerPivot. And, if you are a grizzled BI professional, this may serve as a good reference, but you can breeze through parts of it.

I got this book as part of the PowerPivot workshop that Marco and Alberto teach. I am about half-way through the book now, and I am at the point where I am starting to re-read chapters to make sure I fully understand the concepts. The material is dense with facts and examples, and the book will take you from 0 to 60 in the first few pages, especially if you have not had a lot of PowerPivot exposure prior to this.

I haven't gotten through the entire book yet, but I've been using it as a resource in my position where I'm currently an avid Excel user. Alberto and Marco have covered the full spectrum of what you can do with Powerpivot and provide a wealth of information on how to form and shape your data model for best use in reporting and analytics. I would highly recommend this book if you're getting started with Powerpivot.
