Is it a better decision to take the advanced sas programming exam alone without taking the base programming exam?

Hi,

I am done with my base programming exam and I missed the pass grade in 1 point. I have sufficient knowledge about the basics of SAS programming and I would like to know if I could go ahead and just write the SAS advanced programming exam without retaking the base exam. I would be glad if you guys can let me know your suggestions.

Thank you

I believe you have to pass the first before you can take/pass the second:

SAS Global Certification program

Candidates who earn this credential will have taken and earned passing scores of the following two exams: 1) SAS Base Programming for SAS 9 exam, and 2) SAS Advanced Programming for SAS 9 exam.


Good luck on your next try on the Base exam.

Hi reeza,

Thanks for your reply.

Will it be better choice, if I take the advanced exam first before retaking the base exam?

Thank you.
