I work as an exam developer for SAS Certification so I can answer some of your questions. To find out specifics about the exam itself, please visit the SAS Certification site at: http://support.sas.com/certify/.
Once there, select the SAS Certified Advanced Analytics Professional Using SAS 9 credential. When that page displays, you will see the
Exam 3: SAS Text Analytics, Time Series, Experimentation and Optimization listed as one of the three exams for that credential. When you select that exam, you will then see a description page for the exam that offers you a lot of good detail about what to expect on the exam and how to prepare to take it. If you select the Exam Content tab, you will see great detail on the total number of items, types of items and the length of the exam. In addition, you will see a detailed exam topics list that provides you with the detailed exam objectives for the exam. On the Exam Preparation tab, you will see information about courses that you can take to better prepare for the exam and there are some sample practice exam questions available.
Hope this helps answer some of your questions. Good luck to you on the exam.
