Do you have suggestions for beginners on how to remember where a statement could (or should not) be used? I have no trouble following along the beginning level SAS training courses which cover some basic statements. But when I write the codes by myself, I often forget that I can not use drop / keep statements in Proc steps or I could not use class statement in Proc print.
I know if I look up each statement, Help explains where it is valid at a high level but I'm hoping for some sort of summary for commonly used statements or any tips on how to remember the details.
Thank you. Please let me know if you also have recommendations on SAS books that provide some exercises. I'm hoping doing enough homework (practice questions) will also help me to learn (including remembering the details :-).
Thank you. I've completed the programming I and II. They are great courses, esp. the online ones that let users (e.g. the slow learners like me) re-take the courses. I'll check out the new version of the little SAS book to see if there are more practice questions there. People learn differently. Some of us could use a bit more homework.
