I highly recommend utilizing resources such as books and online tutorials to supplement your learning of LabVIEW. It is important to have a solid understanding of the software in order to effectively use it for your experiments and data analysis. Some recommended resources include "LabVIEW for Everyone: Graphical Programming Made Easy and Fun" by Jeffrey Travis and Jim Kring, and the official LabVIEW tutorials and documentation provided by National Instruments. Additionally, seeking out online communities and forums dedicated to LabVIEW can also be a valuable source of information and support. Good luck in your learning journey!
