Enterprise Guide for Dummies question

Hello:
I am writing from SFU in the Vancouver area.
This university has been permitted to make
SAS 9.1.3 and Enterprise Reporter 9.1available for
student use.
I ordered the SAS Dummies Book by Chris and
Stephen, can anyone indicate if there is a temporary
free trial of SAS Enterprise Guide so I can work
through this book since program not available through
the university.
Any advice on source of a demo version gratefully accepted.
Sincerely, Jess

Hi:
There is a difference between Enterprise Reporter and Enterprise Guide. I assume you mean SAS Enterprise Guide.

Students can get copies of the SAS Learning Edition at a discount in order to learn SAS and SAS Enterprise Guide, as described here:
http://support.sas.com/learn/le/
and as a student, you are able to purchase a downloadable version of SAS Learning Edition for a discounted price through e-Academy. This offer is for the software only (no book):
http://support.sas.com/learn/le/start_student.html

Here's the e-Academy web site:
http://estore.e-academy.com/index.cfm?loc=SAS/main

The SAS Learning Edition includes a copy of SAS Enterprise Guide, as described here:

Re: Enterprise Guide for Dummies question

Before buying Learning Edition or the other possible solutions that Cynthia mentioned, check with your SFU computer support people. It may be that you already have a license for EG, but IT is not distributing it with SAS 9.1.3 (Our IT does not include it in the standard student distribution -- it involves a separate install, 2 additional CDs, and is not (yet) Vista aware.).

Thanks, Doc for qualifying my answer. I completely forgot to mention the Vista issue.
