Tableau is super easy to pick up watch their free videos on the website. It’s basically all drag and drop the only hard part is creating calculated fields because they require logic

I was able to get a free trial for 7 days before my company got a license for me so you may be able to do that on your own? It is very easy to learn at least basic visuals

Would recommend a combination of free videos on tableau and trying to create a variety of dashboards using everyone’s favorite superstore sample data on your own.

No

It’s the bomb. Very user friendly. Advice is to test out the trial. And when you start working with it on a real project, make sure you really know the data set its reading before diving in
