Product description

About the Author

Lora D. Delwiche is an applications software consultant with Information Technology at the University of California at Davis. With over 13 years experience using the SAS System, Lora acts as a SAS site representative and teaches classes on the SAS language. Her experiences teaching SAS to users from many different disciplines prompted her to write a book proving that the SAS System is "not hard to learn." Susan J. Slaughter, an independent computing consultant, "got hooked" on SAS in graduate school over 13 years ago. Since then she has used SAS for a variety of business and academic tasks: managing large databases, teaching SAS software classes, and writing articles about the SAS System. Her experiences prompted her to write a book that would be both informative and fun to read.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book for the beginning SAS user. It provides very well thought out examples that are easy to understand. I have been teaching and working with SAS for many years. This is the best introductory book I have found.

As a Cobol programmer of 20 years experience being thrust into the world of SAS, I required a book to quickly give me the help I needed to become productive as soon as possible. This book is it. Not only is it packed with useful information and tips, it's also an entertaining read. It certainly has made my life much easier.

Format: Paperback
This book helped me get started writing simple SAS programs, but I was soon in need of a more extensive language reference book in order to accomplish anything slightly different than the samples included in the book. The book's value would have been greatly enhanced by the inclusion of appendicies of SAS functions, etc. I was also left wondering what SAS offers beyond the basic level. A list of advanced features with some brief explanation of utility would have been helpful.

As a self-taught beginner on SAS I have found this book to be easy to follow; very informative and educational. I work in a University research setting and have had professors and experienced programmers request the loan of this small treasure.

I learned SAS using this book as the textbook. Later, I taught SAS using this very same book (at UC Berkeley Extension, Summer 1997). It is, in my opinion, the best introduction to data management using SAS. For those looking for other good teaching books, I also recommend (Ron?) Cody's.
