Google for SAS University Edition; if you already had it, and have technical problems that can't be solved by following the tutorials, ask SAS technical support.

SAS software itself is 99% industry agnostic.

So to learn the programming basics, start with the UE as suggested by @KurtBremser. You need to learn how to crawl before attempt to run...

Then enroll the free online SAS Programing 1 course.


If you are not focusing on a specific banking SAS Solution, your might want to read a book about using SAS in the banking industry.

If you search SAS publication for bank, I see 8 books.
