Are 2 months okay for A00 211 exam? Study Material? Syllabus?

Hi All,

 

I am a average mainframe programmer and  trying to learn Base SAS, I want to know are 2 months okay for an avg programmer who goes to work daily?

 Where I can find the updated syllabus and study material for A00-211 Base SAS programming test?

Possibly. Here are a couple blog posts I wrote about my prep in 3 months:

And a paper from a person who did Base and Advanced in 6 months:

If you've got a good programming background and are using SAS a lot and stick to the syllabus posted here:

I'd say you've got a good shot. The practice exam is a big help too.
