Tableau Desktop Specialist Practice Tests 2020

I have published my new Tableau Training online course on the Udemy education platform:

This course includes:

  • Four full-length practice exams (four sets with 30 questions each, 22 theoretical questions and 8 hands-on questions per test)
  • Answer Key, including complete explanations and links to the official Tableau references plus a list of free online resources: blog posts, books, videos, podcasts.
  • The course has been updated with June 2020 Tableau Exam Questions Content.

Please note that provided four practice tests are mock exams, not brain dumps. They are designed to replicate the style, topics, and complexity (or simplicity ;8-) of the real-world Tableau certification exam. The number of questions for each Domain Topic is chosen to match the current Tableau Desktop Specialist Exam Guide. The sentence length and structure of questions are adjusted to match examples from the Exam Guide.

The multiple-choice questions are written with plausible distractors, using the memory + application method that tests students’ knowledge of principles and facts in real-life situations.

The question subjects (eg using the Stocks table, using Flights table, etc),  actions (eg. ‘create a crosstab/chart’, ‘how can you …’, etc), and conditions (‘which is the most probable’, ‘which is the best reason’, etc), also follow the Tableau Sample Exam Format. A candidate preparing for the exam will expend about the same time and apply about the same mental effort understanding the question as he would in the real test center environment.

In the end, I have also tried to make the presentation interesting, in some cases even fun, to maximize the probability you will retain the knowledge ;8-)  In a few places, I have been adding graphics/figures to illustrate the question, hoping that might improve your understanding of the subject matter.

P.S. If you are learning Tableau I recommend you first take the Tableau Desktop Specialist Exam.There are two advantages: (i) you get familiarized with the Tableau Exam format and the online exam environment (administered by Loyalist Exam Services), and (ii) the exam fee is just $100 and your Tableau Desktop Specialist certification title does not expire.

P.S.S. A final comment about the validity of the answers: each practice exam question is followed by an answer, explanation of the answer, and explanation of why other multiple choices are wrong. The link(s) (between two and four) to the free online resources are provided (Tableau documentation, other documentation, pdf articles, blogs, and videos). Some questions on a real Tableau Exam are not precisely worded. Sometimes two multiple-choice options appear to be an almost equally acceptable answer. You should not get too worked up over that: if you use these practice exams as one of the building blocks of your studies, you should be able to demonstrate your broad Tableau Desktop knowledge in a job interview and you should be able to pass the Tableau Desktop Specialist Exam (70% passing score required).
