    I really fine this case study practical and informative. It really got me thinking about the necessary skills needed, that I don't yet have,in the Data Job Market. It was and still is, really beneficial to my learning and growth as a Upcoming Data Analyst.

    This was a great way to get your hands wet with some power bi. There was plenty of guidance, but the expectations were scaled in a way that used a lot of the previous trainings. There were still somethings I had to google, or take the hint on, but it was all positive. Highly recommend if you are in the Datacamp environment and are looking for some real world experience building something out.

    Very good practical exercise which also "forces" you to find solutions on your own.
