Lessons

IBM Cognos Report Studio Advanced is designed for professional report authors using IBM Cognos versions 10.2 and 10.2.2 and builds upon topics learned in the Fundamentals course. In this course you will learn advanced report building techniques using mostly relational data models, and methods of enhancing, customizing, and managing professional reports.

The course is presented in a series of lectures interspersed with hands-on live labs with integrated lab steps, videos with closed captioning, tips and tricks, and knowledge checks for comprehensive assessments. To further refine your skills, you will have access to the lab environment for 12  months along with video recordings of each exercise where an instructor illustrates the process. When you complete this course, you will have the skills to effectively author advanced Cognos reports.

This course includes the topics and skills taught in the IBM Report Studio courses B5259G, J2259G, B5A59G, and JA59G.

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.

Everything was great, but the instructor wasted a lot of time talking about unrelated subjects (like demo-ing different programs, talking about other classes, and talks about how Excel/technology has changed) took up way too much time. The course could have been condensed or better focus would have been great
