I have opted to appear for below certification in a month's time. I have started reading and using SAS from SAS Stat User Guide. Does anyone have any idea what contents to focus for this certification ?. The User Guide has close to 8800 pages (yes, Eighty eight hundred pages).
SAS Certified Statistical Business Analyst Using SAS 9: Regression and Modeling Credential
If anyone prepared or appeared for it, please let me know, it would be of great help

I did the beta exam in July 2012 and teach Statistical Business Analyst bootcamps for SAS Australia to prepare SAS users for the certification. On the SAS Global Certification page, http://support.sas.com/certify/creds/sba.html#s1=3 you will see that there are 2 SAS courses that can help you prepare for them. I suggest either attending these training courses and/or studying the material from the SAS/Stat User Guide as described in the course outlines:
This blog post (and comments) may also provide you some tips to help with your study.
All the best for your exam.

Is the two course listed above aimed at the SAS business analyst certification or does it more content than the certification is intended for. I think these courses would cover more than that required for the certification. Is that assumption correct ?
Also I did check that one can opt for sample 50 questions for SAS Base and Advance certification, Is there similar thing available for SAS Business analyst course. I checked the website i couldn't find anything. i would like to practice question similar to what is asked during the exam.
From where I can get all these

The 2 courses cover the material that is assessed in the exam, it is not more as per your assumption.
There currently is only 10 sample questions from the website for exam preparation at http://support.sas.com/certify/creds/samples.html#sba
