Format: Paperback
It's SAS but not as we know it........It's actually 'SAS Enterprise Guide 4.1' so, if you think this book will teach you SAS programming...it wont but it will still show you how to get the same results quicker, easer and without all that confusing code. I like...a lot. >:o)

Format: Paperback
Peppered with the usual humour of the "...For Dummies" range, this book is accessible and fairly simple to understand as long as you have a basic grasp of computing. Do be aware that if you are thinking of actually programming in SAS this probably isn't the book for you, as it mainly concentrates on the Enterprise interface rather than true SAS.
Basically a good book for those who wish to utilise the statistical powers of SAS without getting their hands dirty.

This book is great for people who want to only use SAS via the menus. To fully master the software you need to gradually become comfortable writing code. For this you need the "little book of SAS". In actual fact though the ideal would be to read both.

I didn't find this book very easy to use either as a reference book or as a text book which you can read from start to finnish to get an understanding of SAS.

This book also won't tell you anything about the worlds most elite fighting force. You must admit the title is misleading, so if you were looking for an introduction to the Special Air Service i wouldn't recommend this!
