Upgraded My Certification title to Tableau Desktop 9 Qualified Associate From 8

In June 2015 I appeared for Tableau Desktop 8 Qualification Exam. I was Qualified in that Exam and got 88%.

Later Tableau release Certification for 9 version. Tableau certifications are version specific and there is no validity limitation for your certificate. Once you are certified that will have life long validity for that particular version.

Suppose i got title as Tableau Desktop 8 Qualified Associate. That will be forever. But if you want to Upgrade your title to 9 version then you have to write upgrade exam. you need to clear Tableau Desktop 9 Delta Exam to upgrade your title from 8 to 9.

Similar way for Tableau Server also has Delta Exam. For More details visit certification info in my blog. Click here to see details.

This time I cracked Tableau Desktop 9 Delta Exam with 100% Score. Now I have two certifications.

Exam Details:

Exam Duration: 45 mins
Knowledge Based Questions: 7
Hands on Questions: 5
Passing score: 75%

Based on above information I started my analysis. So total 22 marks you have to get 17 to clear this exam.

You have choice of loosing 5 marks. Suppose if you made 2 questions wrong in Hands on session you are gone. You will not qualify.

You have choice of getting wrong 1 hands on Question and 2 knowledge based questions only. This analysis help me to prepare well.
