If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

Took me some trial and error but I figured out the pins without using a shift register
You say the pinout on the datasheet is wrong, but the (current) datasheet shows the same pinout as you do...
I think we may have updated the data sheet and forgotten to remove the note in the product description here, but I'll double check. Thanks for the review!
