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..Smiley Happy

Recently a free e-book was released. Check out this link:

Also the free EDX online course is great for learning.

Re: What is fastest learning path for learning Power BI?

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 I find free PBi information very fractured, incomplete, and often outdated.
