SAS training

Hey there!

 

I'm not sure if this is the appropriate board, but I assume an admin can/will move if it's better posted elsewhere.

 

I'm a PhD student nearing prelims (yay)...I know enough (I think/hope/pray) to pass what my professors will want for my prelims, but I'm tired of not knowing SAS as well as I could. I am not a statistician by any means, but I intend to pursue research as a primary focus for my career, so I need to be rather fluent in stats coding. I can do some basic things in SAS, but know that what I can do could be smoother and could come more fluently. What class(es) should I consider taking to broaden my familiarity with this coding language?

 

Thanks in advance, 

Kate

Hi @ksmielitz, SAS users who frequent the Certification Community (for users pursuing various forms of SAS certification) and Analytics U Community (where folks learning SAS hang out) might have some useful tips too. Consider posting those places too. Best of luck with your prelims!
