It was pretty good, given that I had 0 prior experience in Tableau. Nevertheless, I have some mentions: - even if the trainer seems to be a pro in this field, his pace was a little too fast for total beginners; - the videos should be retaken, as it was used a previous version of Tableau and there have been some (interface) modifications since then; - the "Next Video" button at the end of each video doesn't work.
I feel like we needed more tinkering around with the file since there is some unexpected difficulties when trying to dissect them on Tableau. I wish there was some course notes to help us along and remember the key functions. Although I am sure we can find some online, it would be helpful to know the ones shown in class.
Some irregularities with the Audiobook name in the edit blending relationship section where, prior to the clarification lesson, the field is deleted, but in the fix video, it was corrected. It would help to fix the Data Blending lesson where audiobook name field is not deleted instead.
So easy to understand every detail Ned tried to show at a very understandable pace. Table for used provided in resource section do help me to understand and easy to remember. (Although I didn't like Ned (instructor) Excel course because of pace but this one is commendable)
They should add more details on how to use Tableau especially when you want save your data after you work on it. In addition the video record is very light color, some colourful needed to make our attention better
