Final Advice on Becoming an SAS Programmer

"Just what the novice SAS programmer needs, particularly those who have no real programming experience. For example, branching is one of the more difficult programming commands for students to implement and the author does an excellent job of explaining this topic clearly and at a basic level. A big plus is the Common Errors section since students will definitely encounter errors." 

Robert Pavur

"Spector has done an excellent job in explaining a somewhat difficult topic in a clear and concise manner. I like the fact that screen captures are included. It allows students to better follow what is being described in the book in relation to what is on the screen." 

Philip Craiger
