Please help me with preparing for SAS Certification Exam

I need help, I have went through the SAS Certification Book a few months ago. I read the Little Book of SAS, I taken both classes. I feel like I’m still not prepared. What would you recommend?

Why aren't you confident? It sounds like your preparation is more than enough

Every time I try to do the programming on my own I will forget something.
When I tried the practice questions in the prep guide, I would miss some.

Make yourself some flash cards and practice. 

Note where you're making mistakes - then study those specific topics. 

 

And try and answer questions here.

Get a working SAS environment, if you don't have one available from your employer or university/school, get SAS University Edition.

Then use that to answer questions here (you don't need to post your answers, just try to solve problems), and to replay answers given by others, and see if you "get" what's happening.

Learning by doing has always worked best for me.
