    Hello,
    I'm a newbie trying to create/edit Cognos Analytics reports. I see there are a lot of videos out there, but I'm an old school book learner at heart. Can anyone suggest articles/books/reference materials that I can read to get me up-to-speed on learning Cognos Analytics?
    Thank you!
    Pam B.

    Hello Pamela,

    I'm barely one year into working with Cognos Analytics and have found the YouTube channel from PMSquare to be very helpful.  Link below.  Hope this helps.

    Hi Pamela,

    more friendly is the web documentation https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/cognos-analytics/11.1.0

    There used to be great Getting Started sessions as IBM Cognos Analytics 11.1.4 : Getting Started with Reporting. However it is gone. Anyone knows if it is possible to find it somewhere else?

    Here are also some demos: https://www.ibm.com/demos/search/?products=%22IBM%20Cognos%20Analytics%22&lc=en
