Overview

Develop and fine-tune your programming skills the easy way -- by example! For beginning and intermediate users, this book guides you, with a series of annotated examples, through basic tasks to more complex ones. Problems and solutions are provided to make the most of the programming tools available in base SAS software. Conversational in tone, this book is useful both as a tutorial for learning programming and as a convenient quick-reference filled with tips and strategies for solving your programming problems. Among the clearly explained examples are models that show you how to build SAS data sets, use SAS functions for data translation, program more efficiently, relate information from multiple sources, and chart and plot data. You will also learn to work with SAS date values, produce descriptive and summary statistics, and write reports.

Supports releases 6.09E and higher of SAS software.

    This is definitely a good book!

    This book has lots of good examples and it definitely a good book to have for SAS programming. All the examples are well defined and explained. But, if you're a beginner, my advice is read the Little SAS book before you read this!! Enjoy!
