PL-300 Study Guide

The PL-300 exam tests knowledge of Power BI Desktop and the Power BI service. replaces the DA-100 exam, which itself was a replacement for the 70-778 Exam. Microsoft publishes a skills guide for the PL-300 as well as free online training, but I found it was often difficult to locate resources related to the topics in the skills guide. The Microsoft documentation often covers several related topics on a single page, so it can be difficult to find the place in the page that addresses the specific topic from the skills guide. I look at other guides I found there were outdated and had gaps, so I put this together. I hope this compilation of links helps speed your preparation!
