Microsoft Power BI team have made a superb YouTube channel ( and there are lots of video tutorials available from basic to advanced, you can pick the video from there and can learn at your own pace. It is up to you how quickly you complete the tutorials.

For me, most of these replies assume too much for a beginner (like me). And I'm someone who knows lots of script languages and is a power Excel formulas and pivot features user. I find free PBi information very fractured, incomplete, and often outdated.

just follow the official powerBI website guided learning you will find videos as well as documentation, and use sample database like adventureworks in powerbi desktop and do trial and error using that database in all visuals and u can even learn about the tools and options available in powerBI desktop through videos available in guided learning. working on excel before using powerBi would be really helpful.

good luck..:)
