Book Description

Tableau is a leading visual analytics software that can uncover insights for better and smarter decision-making. Tableau has an uncanny ability to beautify your data, compared to other BI tools, which makes it an ideal choice for performing fast and easy visual analysis.

A military camp style fast-paced learning book that builds your understanding of Tableau 10 in no time. This day based learning guide contains the best elements from two of our published books, Learning Tableau 10 - Second Edition and Tableau 10 Business Intelligence Cookbook, and delivers practical, learning modules in manageable chunks. Each chunk is delivered in a "day", and each "day" is a productive day. Each day builds your competency in Tableau. You will increase your competence in integrating analytics and forecasting to enhance data analysis during the course of this Bootcamp.

Each chapter presents core concepts and key takeaways about a topic in Tableau and provides a series of hands-on exercises. In addition to these exercises, at the end of the chapter, you will find self-check quizzes and extra drills to challenge you, to take what you learned to the next level. To summarize, this book will equip you with step-by-step instructions through rigorous tasks, practical callouts, and various real-world examples and assignments to reinforce your understanding of Tableau 10.
