For example, Where, IF, When, etc... case statements.
i.e. Z = VariableX, when VariableY="June". Then would these calculated fields aggregate and adjust based on what filters are applied at that time?

These will give you a really good concrete understanding of how Tableau works. Understanding concepts like a Dimension vs Measure and Continuous vs Discrete goes a long way into understanding more advanced topics in Tableau later on.
If you are familiar with Databases and Queries, than I also suggest you also do some Performance Recordings, and Analyze the Queries Tableau generates.
This gives you really good insight into what Tableau is doing, depending on your calculations and pill arrangement.
