To be facetious, at the beginning.  There are SAS books available via many book outlets or SAS themselves.  SAS provides certification courses.  You will need licensed software, so if you are at college then they should have the training edition.  If you are at work then they would have it.  It depends very much on your situation, do you have access to the software.

, have you programmed before, what do you intend using the software for as there are many components, will you be stats orientated etc. I would start by having a look at SAS main page at the various components, and what you would be using it for, then look at SAS Base which is core.  Not sure if SAS do a learning edition any more other than the college one.
