    5

    easy to follow, very helpful to use the same data throughout the course so one can clearly see the differences between various visualizations.

  2. Arjun Rattan

    5

    The course very methodically covers tableau starting with simple chart types, showing their capabilities, and then pulling them together for practical use via creating dashboards and stories. Dashboard design is well explained.

  3. Stanley F. Siranovich

    5

    More comprehensive than some of the other Tableau courses I’ve taken. Also gives more explanation of what’s happening “under the hood” rather than the usual click here for this and there for that.

  4. Rita Long

    5

    Excellent introduction to Tableau. Training is delivered at a great pace and easy to understand and retain.

  5. Wendy Weber

    5

    The instructor is extremely knowledgeable! I have taken 5 Tableau classes and I am still learning new information from this instructor.

  6. Tyler Tomczyk

    5

    Good overview and pace.

  7. Jim Wallace

    Excellent examples with good explanations.

  8. Mark Gandy

    5

    I’m an advanced-beginner, so I did not do the modules in order.

    The pace was perfect. I liked the voice of the instructor. I’ve taken several Tableau courses over the years, and this one is on par.

    Two suggestions for getting the most out of this content. Go through it once as fast as possible taking note of what you want to go back to as there is a ton of content here.

    Then go back, slow down, and do the exercises. Going forward, think of this material as your Tableau Wiki.

    There was definitely no fluff in this course.

    Also, a big high five to the instructor for answering a database question for me in LinkedIn.

  9. Olumuyiwa David Omogbehin

    5

    Thanks alot. I really enjoy the course and every bit of the explanation was very clear and concise. In short I dont know how I can THANK you more than this due to the fact that you make me became a TABLEAU Expert in short period and I have been looking for something like this to give me the edge within the market. I can develop Tableau from the beginning to the end now. Thanks. You are more than Five Stars Rating.

    I have finished the course, except the formatting section. I found that it has really good course structure, from basic to advance concepts. I can’t find much on Statistical modelling and server or R language. I recommend it as good course to know tableau desktop applications.

  40. David Drew

    Excellent talk through and demonstrations which can be followed interactively. The main issue I have found is with geographical data in the demo data sheets not working correctly when creating geographical visuals as it isn’t picking up the US information (State / Region etc.)

    The course starts out for the beginner, but in the end seems to be in the advanced stages. I didn’t have access to the data files the first time I went through it, so I’ll get them ready for the second time I go through it. Doing it on another screen should help me to remember. This course is like drinking from a fire hose.

    I am very glad to have enrolled in this class. Before joining in, i have no idea how Tableau even looked like. The course has given me everything i needed to navigate and make the most out of Tableau. No wasted minute 🙂

    Kudos to Rob! He presented the course very clearly, comprehensive, and engaging. From introducing Tableau to creating demos to sharing his tips and tricks, he remained consistent throughout the whole process, thus, it was not painful looking at all those samples, it was in fact exciting as he moved from one lesson to the next.

    I highly recommend this course to all of you out there, especially if you and Tableau are not acquainted yet. Best place to start.
