The most efficient way to study for a test is to take a practice test!
So we’ve released a free Certified Data Analyst test to help you prepare for the official Tableau Certified Data Analyst.
Question use the same formats as the official exam. There are 35 multiple choice, multiple selection, and active screen questions. Covering the same domains as on the official exam:
- Domain 1: Connect to and Transform Data
- Domain 2: Explore and Analyze Data
- Domain 3: Create Content
- Domain 4: Publish and Manage Content on Tableau Server and Tableau Online
Before you take a the practice test, I would recommend trying the two practice questions included in Tableau’s Certified Data Analyst exam guide: https://mkt.tableau.com/files/TableauCertifiedDataAnalyst_ExamGuide.pdf and going through this set of practice questions.
Nervous about the exam? I was nervous about answering questions in Domain 4 since I haven’t had much experience with Tableau Server and no experience with Tableau Online. And I’d never used Tableau Prep. But I found that reading the documentation and doing practice questions was enough for me to pass the Data Analyst exam.
Given that the Data Analyst exam uses “scaled scoring” rather than a simple percentage score to determine who passes, it’s currently tough for me to say how difficult the exam is or what percent of people pass the exam. But it seems like a good idea to do as many free questions as possible before taking the exam. Good luck!
