Overview of this book

The Tableau Desktop Specialist certification is fundamental for any data visualization professional who works in the field with Tableau. This book gets you started by covering the exam format, Tableau basics, and best practices for preparing data for analysis and visualization. It also builds on your knowledge of advanced Tableau topics to get you up to speed with the essential domains and domain objectives. Although the guide provides an outline and starting point to key in on what needs to be understood before the examination, it also delivers in context to give you a strong understanding of each piece before taking the exam. Instructions on how to get hands on with examples, a common data source, and suggested elements are also included. Understanding the concepts will not only assist you in passing the examination, but will also help you work effectively with the tool in your workspace. By the end of this book, you'll be able to efficiently prepare for the certification exam with the help of mock tests, detailed explanations, and expert advice from the author.

Mock Test

This is the chapter that you have prepared for. This is an incredible way to verify your learning or help you know what to focus on before taking the test. The following questions are not on the examination but will align with their scoring weights. You should take the examination multiple times to verify your understanding and whether it’s consistent. The other thing is that the exam will be scored to 1,000 and each question will be valued at 25 points. You need to score 750 points to pass (answer 30 questions correctly).

Although Tableau’s weight detail on each question is proprietary, we can get very close based on their preparation guide here: For our training purposes, you will have 10 questions on Connecting to and Preparing Data (CPD), 10 on Sharing Insights (SI), 14 on Exploring and Analyzing Data (EAD), and 6 on Understanding Tableau Concepts (UTC), with no unscored questions.
