Horrid textbook... but it covers what you need 21 août 2012
Par Tim - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The book was rife with formatting atrocities, typos, and inane repetition. (I believe I counted 3 instances of exact same "operators in SAS" table, and the topic was introduced each time as though you'd never seen it before). Sometimes it felt like the author(s) were attempting to fill whitespace.
On the whole, the book reads like it was written by a non-native English speaker and evidence of editorial review is noticeably absent.

But...
As poorly written as the book is, it does the job of preparing you for the exam and lets you know what to study.
It is written by SAS, and they are the ones who ultimately write the exam. Still, I expect better.

Riddled with Errors, But It's the Only Game in Town 7 février 2013
Par Andrew - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is the first E-book I've read that had programming errors in it. I don't mean error in the SAS code (though there are some of those too) but errors in the way the book is read by the Kindle Reader for Android. More than once, I turned the page to find myself on the same page, and turned the page again to land on the same page, and again and again and again...yes the book gets stuck in an iterative loop. Ironically it is a book about programming.

Also, some of the quiz questions are tricky, which I guess is good, but some of the "correct" answers aren't correct in all circumstances. This may cause an experienced programmer to choose the "wrong" answer when in fact their choice makes better sense. For example, the correct answer to one question is that formats assigned in the data step are assigned permanently. This is NOT true if the dataset is a work dataset...I would choose temporarily, but according to the book, this is wrong.

If you want to study for the SAS Certification exam cheaply, this is the way to do it, in spite of the problems.

ADDENDUM: I have now taken the SAS Certification test and can add that this book does NOT COVER EVERYTHING ON THE TEST. Though I think there is enough information in this book to pass the test, it is no substitute for practical experience.

One of the only test prep guides 8 octobre 2012
Par Ronald Finnerty - Publié sur Amazon.com

Well, don't use this to learn statistical techniques.
It is design to PREPare you for the ceertification exam, that's it.
The chapter end quizes taught me that the cert exam will be nit-picky.
The expectation is to get you to know "exactly" situational appropriate knowledge.
There are errors in the text that I have run into in many chapters, and some areas that contradict each other.
But I have found this a very good reference for using SAS and will be buying the next text in the series.
I think a more CD practice as you go approach would be much better but I couldn't find one.
So if your like me, and know some SAS programming and want to assure yourself of what you know and learn the finicky particulars before you sit for the certification exam....then this is a great text for you.
Pair this with some SAS by statistical example text and you have the makings of the start of a good SAS library.

Great book for the exam 26 mai 2013

Much cheaper than doing the course.
Suitable for people who never used sas or programmed.
The exam questions were very close to the book's curriculum, however I wouldn't have passed without solving
additional questions from exams that can be found on the web for free.
Will get the advanced study guide as well.

Poor editing, but what else is there? 26 avril 2013
Par M. White - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The SAS base exam is nitpicky... You really have to watch placement, semicolons, dollar signs, and periods. However, there are so many typos in this book that I worry about learning things incorrectly. I have found several errors that aren't listed on the errata, and I am only halfway through the book. I find myself wondering what errors I haven't found, and double checking almost every line I read in the SAS documentation (maybe this is part of the preparation strategy?).

The book also repeats things in dumb ways, for example, tables 1.5 to 1.11 are the EXACT same table repeated over and over! I wasted several minutes trying to figure out what was different before I realized there was no difference... It seems like they tried to cobble together several different powerpoint slides instead of writing a book from scratch. It is really painful.

The chapter summaries tend to read better than the chapters themselves and can be used as a jumping point to what you should look up in your other SAS books or papers or documentation. However, the real selling point for this book are the quizzes, assuming that the questions are modeled off the real exam (I will update this review after I take the exam.)

Overall, if you are taking the exam you really should get this book so you have an idea of the content and format of the questions. But don't rely on this book exclusively (double check everything!). Hopefully SAS will overhaul it.
