We’re excited to kick-off our SAS Explore Certification Review today to help prepare you for the SAS® Certified Specialist: Base Programming Using SAS® 9.4 performance-based certification exam.


Our virtual workshop will run on August 28 and August 31, 2023 from 1:00 - 4:30 pm ET. During these sessions, we will review the exam logistics, highlight important concepts, practice sample certification exam questions, and provide additional materials for you to utilize as you study.


By now you should have received an automated email with details for activating the Extended Learning Page and joining the class.


Please use this post to ask questions and collaborate with classmates.

Great first session! We covered material on SAS programming essentials and accessing/creating data structures.


On Thursday, we will talk about managing data, error handling, and generating reports and output. During this time, we will also get some practice with the performance-based question type, so make sure you come ready to code!


If you're excited to study now, check out the case study on the VLE.

Thank you to all those who joined our session live this week! As a reminder, the recording will be available for 20 business days and serves as a great resource to review as you prepare. 


Another great resource for you: the Extended Learning Page! This includes links to the Prep Guide, Exam Content Guide, Practice Exam, and a PDF of our full slide deck from class. Within the PDF, we've also included additional questions to help you review. 


As you enter into the final ten days until you take the exam, feel free to post questions to this thread - or email me or Cristina. Good luck in your studies!
