Re: Data Analytics using sas

First you need to learn about statistics from the theoretical side. Then you can start using SAS to apply that knowledge.

Without solid roots in statistics, attempts at using SAS/STAT will mostly fail.

(When the SAS documentation says "Procedure XXX is used for YYYY", and you have no clue what YYYY means, you're hosed anyway)

I don't have roots in statistics, so I leave that to the academic statisticians in the actuaries. I'm just the data engineer.

The first statistics course is free via e-learning, see bottom right hand corner. 

There's also a selection of videos here as well.
