Applied Analytics Using SAS® Enterprise Miner - E-Course

Currently working through the Introduction to Predictive Modeling using SAS EM I got to screen 23 of 27 and noticed that the Organics SAS dataset supplied is not the same dataset that is referenced in the e-course??

i.e. e-course:


SAS Data Table Organics

The Organics data table contains sample data regarding purchases of organic products by members of a supermarket's customer loyalty program. The table contains 22,223 cases and 18 variables.

Hello, I am the course developer for that course. Are you using the sample data that is included with the e-course? If you downloaded ZIP file of sample data from the page entitled "Before You Begin" that was linked from the "Learning Path" page of the e-course (the link says "required setup steps"), you should have the correct data that matches what is referred to in the course. There IS other data available for this course-- the data that is used in the Live Web version of the course and is linked from the Extended Learning page, for example, has an Organics data set that does not match exactly what is referred to in the course. My suspician is that you might be using that other data. Is that possible?

Thanks,

Amy

Hi Amy,  Thanks for your help.  I was getting quite confused by the difference between the e-course version and the instructor led version.
