SAS Certified Statistical Business Analyst Using SAS 9: Regression and Modeling

Hi ,

Is  there a  prep guide(in pdf or  book format)  for SAS Certified Statistical Business Analyst Using SAS 9: Regression and Modeling. I am not  inclined  to join  the  full course /training program , that  offered by SAS.  I have  some  knowledge  about  all the  topics included in the certification, but  need  some direction . A  question pattern  guide would  also be helpful.

Re: SAS Certified Statistical Business Analyst Using SAS 9: Regression and Modeling

Hi:
  
  Currently there is no Prep Guide for the Certified Statistical Business Analyst certification exam. The classes that would prepare you for the exam are Statistics 1 and Predictive Modeling using Logistic Regression, as described on the exam web site (http://support.sas.com/certify/creds/sba.html#s1=2). You can view some sample questions here (http://support.sas.com/certify/creds/samples.html#sba). If you don't want to take the courses because you already know the material, then you could purchase the course notes from the SAS Bookstore (http://support.sas.com/publishing/index.html) in order to see what's covered in those two classes.

Hi Cynthia , Could  you tell me is  SAS STAT User Guide 9.1  is a sufficient  study material for this certification. I know this  is a very detailed volume, but I am  trying to understand  if it atleast has , all that we  need  to know  before this certification.

Hi Cynthia,

 

I bought the two books, that you have mentioned in your earlier post. But, I dont know where to find the SAS files and data sets discussed in the book. Can you please provide me with that information.

The course notes run about $100 per course, so I'd recommend getting those as well. They're cost effective and likely to cover the topics on the exam.

How do I buy course notes, am interested in buying : Statistics II: ANOVA and Regression : Course Notes, but I could not find it on SAS site or Online. Am not a student and am not working in a related field. If you can guide me by providing a link I would be grateful.

Thanks.

Re: SAS Certified Statistical Business Analyst Using SAS 9: Regression and Modeling

Hmm...I hope you realize there's a significant difference between BI (Business Intelligence) vs BA (Business Analyst) and the exams.

This is partly why I and my employers do not trust the SAS Certification system and usually test employees directly.
