SAS Book

Dear All,

Could you please suggest me a begginer's book for SAS programming? I am interested in combining SAS programming with Operations Research/Mathematical optimization, so this is the reason i am asking you.

Kind Regards,

Re: SAS Book

Take a look at the SAS Analytics U home page, halfway down the right hand side is a link to the free SAS training available - very recommended.

Second would be Little SAS Book

And, in addition to Reeza's suggestions, when you are done with the free training, we do have classes in the use of SAS/OR and SAS/IML. The Optimization and Simulation training path page is here: SAS Training - Optimization and Simulation path

Re: SAS Book

Hi, I'd recommend, just go buy anything that you can authored by Ron Cody.

SAS Press - Ron Cody Author Page

Wish , i could afford to buy all of his books. Believe me, If a guy of below average intelligence like me can learn to code on learning from the examples given in his books, anybody can. If you are active, and not lazy like me and if you can complete learning from each and every example of his book, you are soon to program like Art T et al etc.
