Fundamentals of Programming in SAS: A Case Studies Approach gives a complete introduction to SAS programming. Perfect for students, novice SAS users, and programmers studying for their Base SAS certification, this book covers all the basics, including:

working with data
creating visualizations
data validation
good programming practices

Experienced programmers know that real-world scenarios require practical solutions. Designed for use in the classroom and for self-guided learners, this book takes a novel approach to learning SAS programming by following a single case study throughout the text and circling back to previous concepts to reinforce material. Readers will benefit from the variety of exercises, including both multiple choice questions and in-depth case studies. Additional case studies are also provided online for extra practice. This approach mirrors the way good SAS programmers develop their skillsthrough hands-on work with an eye toward developing the knowledge necessary to tackle more difficult tasks. After reading this book, you will gain the skills and confidence to take on larger challenges with the power of SAS.

Book Reviews

"This textbook builds a solid programming foundation for new SAS users and provides practical tips for SAS programming. The material progresses in a compounding fashion by building on previous topics as new procedures and data manipulation techniques are introduced, taking care to emphasize how concepts fit together to achieve a goal, rather than presenting them in isolation. The exercises are well-designed to improve topic comprehension and prepare the student for the level of skill needed for the SAS Base Programming Certificate." -Econometrica, Inc.

"Through strategic employment of hands-on learning, self-tests, and in-depth explanations of powerful procedures, both veteran and new SAS programmers are able to learn about programming best practices and how to hone their skills within a structured and appropriately challenging environment." -Deanna Schreiber-Gregory, Independent Consultant, Statistical Theory and Data Management "Juxdapoze"

"Fundamentals of Programming in SAS: A Case Studies Approach is an excellent tool for learning Base SAS and beyond. The book provides something for everyone: step by step training for the novice programmers and challenging exercises for more experienced programmers. The case studies provide learners with real applications to programming to help overall understanding of Statistical Analysis with real data sets using SAS." -Ellen H. Breazel, PhD, Clemson University,
