I've been working for Tableau for a few months already but I took this course in preparation for doing the advanced course to make sure I understood all the basics. It's well worth it, It comprehensively covered all the important elements, the layout was logical and easy to follow. Covered all the essential points with simplistic but detailed explanations. I'd definitely recommend to anyone interested in starting or improving their Tableau Skills
