I am unconvinced, I am pretty good with SAS now but I cannot say that this helped, There is nothing like experience when using SAS and focussing on the "keep it simple" , "write down your requirements" is the best advice to start with...

Please Change the Title of the Book 26 Jun 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book should be titled "SAS Enterprise Guide for Dummies", not "SAS for Dummies".

If you are looking for a beginner's guide to SAS Enterprise Guide, this is a good choice. However, if you are looking for a guide to classic SAS, the SAS Datastep language, Proc SQL, etc... this is not the book you want.

False Advertising 27 Jun 2007
By Monica E. Hackett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is going back to the store. It is not a guide to SAS but to SAS Enterprise. Thank goodness a colleague quickly short circuited my learning curve on this book. He told me as I sat with a data set about to plunge in. We don't even have Enterprise on our company computer.

Too bad...I had high hopes.

Great intro to "new" SAS 9 Aug 2007
By Anonymous Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
SAS For Dummies, like all of the books in the Dummies series I've read, is an enjoyable to read, easy to understand introduction to a broad and complex topic. As some have mentioned, the focus of this book is not on "SAS programming." Rather it covers getting your analysis and reporting work done using some of the newer offerings from SAS in the "business intelligence" area, including Enterprise Guide and other products. There is, however, a helpful chapter on what kinds of programming tasks can be done by more advanced users and what long-time SAS programmers may miss. (For a good book on SAS programming, I'd recommend The Little SAS Book). Also included in SAS For Dummies is good coverage of data integration, "Stored Processes" for analysis and reporting, and 2 chapters on analytics. These 2 chapters are especially helpful as an introduction to difficult concepts. Overall, this book provides a helpful overview of getting your data manipulation, analysis, and reporting tasks done with SAS, and a no-nonsense, nuts and bolts understanding of some of the newest software from SAS.

Terribly misnamed book!! 10 Jun 2008
By John D. Kruse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book based on the title and the description provided by Amazon, although I have no clue where they got it. However, while I was looking for a book that described SAS, the language, this book describes SAS, the Windows interface. There is nothing in this book about the actual SAS language, so if that is what you're looking for, like I was, then steer clear of this! Somewhere on the cover or in Amazon's description of this book, there should be a big, red, warning label making sure that you are aware that really this is SAS (Windows) for Dummies!! I guess, in my case, the dummies part was pretty descriptive! I also will never, ever, buy another "for Dummies" book. There is $30 + shipping and handling down the drain.

Great reference to SAS Enterprise Guide and SAS BI 25 Sep 2011
By P. Payne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was a great introduction to the SAS Enterprise Guide and it's advanced features. The authors present the information in a through and easily understandable manner. If you are not familiar with SAS - SAS Enterprise Guide includes BASE SAS and a lot more. This book will not teach you to code - instead it guides you through the SAS Tasks that write the SAS code for you. Then you can use the SAS code in other tasks so you can quickly learn to program. When learning SAS programming - this can be extremely helpful. Also ... there is a lot of helpful information about statistics, business intelligence, and reporting.
