About the Course

In this third course of the specialization, we’ll drill deeper into the tools Tableau offers in the areas of charting, dates, table calculations and mapping. We’ll explore the best choices for charts, based on the type of data you are using. We’ll look at specific types of charts including scatter plots, Gantt charts, histograms, bullet charts and several others, and we’ll address charting guidelines. We’ll define discrete and continuous dates, and examine when to use each one to explain your data. You’ll learn how to create custom and quick table calculations and how to create parameters. We’ll also introduce mapping and explore how Tableau can use different types of geographic data, how to connect to multiple data sources and how to create custom maps....

Through this course learner can efficiently learn about dual layer maps, dual axis, creating calculated fields and many more. Thanks for such a great platform to learn and for great instructors.

This course, which I completed as part of UC Davis' Data Viz Specialization, was clearly presented and involved a lot of hands on assignments that helped to increase confidence and skills.

Great course. In my view, this is the first course in this specialization that struck the right balance between theory (few) and practice (much). Suk did a terrific job at explaining key functions in a concise manner and giving us exercises to solidify the newly-learned skills.

A great intro to all charts and types with insights on which charts to use when, lectures are a bit pacy but quite informative! It would help to align the lectures of each week to the assignments and a to maintain standard data source without discrepancies.

This particular course of the specialization was great. The basic aspect of visualization was demonstrated very well & the work on assignments was a great aid to help understand the key concepts of various Charts, Color, Shape, Size, Type of Data, etc

This is a highly recommended course to develop skills in Tableau analytics. All the contents are well-managed, elaborately described and easy to understood. Practice assignments will help to easily grasp the techniques. Thanks to the instructor.

Best of the 3 courses so far, shouldn't be third in the specialization. If you don't have time to complete the specialization or if you want just an overview of both simple and cool things to do in tableau this is the course you want to take.

Great course with clear instruction on the final project. Some parts of the Tableau software is abit outdated and would appreciate an updated version. Other than that, instructors are very clear and greatly appreciate the course material.

This format was very straight forward and digestible. The way the information for assignments was provided was also very helpful. I wish all of the other professors/courses in this certification used Prof. Brar's format.

The course was easy to understand. I was afraid that I might not be able to get the grasp of it since I started with the 3 Week part but then I was able to easily absorb it. Thank you! I will take the full course now. :)

Practical and useful. The structured introduction to Tableau is great and seems like it would be useful as the second course in the specialization rather than the third course.

My favorite course from this learning path. I learned how to use Tableau's functionalities and the activities were exciting to do. There is more focus in practice than theory.

Good intro to Tableau. The instructor is crystal clear. The case study is pretty good, it's very satisfactory to understand at the end what is wrong with this company.

It was effective and simple to learn few concepts which can be fruitful for my future projects. However calculated fields should have been discussed more in detail.

So Far, This is a Very Good course design. However, if it is possible, more practice assignment will be much better for learning and improving the skill.
