Which courses to study in the e-learning list for base certification

Hi All,

 

I am new to SAS and have got access to SAS e-learning module.

In e-lerning module i have access multiple courses and unable to decide which one i should focus on to clear base certification ?

I have attached screenshot here for the reference.

It will be great if i can get some info about the specific courses i should target ?

I am planning to appear for base sas certification in a month or two.

 

Thanks

Aditya

Go to the Base SAS certification page. 

It lists the topics (in detail) and what courses you need to take for each certification.

I highly recommend the Certification Guide as a resource. It's also great in the future as a quick reference guide.

Thanks for the response !!

 

I have access to programming 1 and 2 . So certification guide on top of that would be enough right ?

I am quite new to SAS. For how long i should study to appear for exam ?

I have had exposure to other programming languages like r , python etc.

Thanks

Pa4 - My background was similar to yours. I knew other languages, but not SAS. Here are a couple blog posts that I wrote (seven years ago?! ....time flies....) about my preparation experience.

Good luck with your prep.
