Learn and Apply Fundamental Skills
Get a step-by-step walk-through of the fundamentals of data visualization and data discovery with Tableau. You'll learn how to:
- Sort, filter, and group your data
- Create tables, bar charts, line charts
- Show location using geographic maps
- Aggregate with sum, average, min, max, and counts
- Create new fields using calculations

But just watching the videos won't make you an expert. For mastery, you need to go hands-on by answering questions that reinforce the skills from the videos. To go hands-on, you'll install the Public version of the Tableau software, which is available for free and easy to install on Mac or Windows. Then you'll download the sample data sets included with the course, and Tableau to answer questions about this sample data.
