Ask yourself:

- how many data steps have I written?

- do I understand the inner working of the data step?

- how many working SAS SQL queries have I written?

- how many external files have I successfully imported?

- how many exports from SAS to other data formats have I done?

- how many reports have I created by manipulating/writing code?

- how many (and which) SAS procedures can I code from memory?

- did I make proper use of the macro engine when needed?

- have I ever set up a SAS installation on my own?

as these answers may give you a clue where to begin.

If all you ever did was to use the point-and-click frontend to a SAS application, you best start at SAS Programming 1.
