Students who take this course will acquire a deeper understanding of the SAS System and especially the SQL procedure. This understanding will help the student to write more efficient programs as well as utilize more features of the SQL procedure. In some cases, this translates to writing more concise programs. This course also includes a quick introduction to the SAS Macro facility. The course is mostly lecture with some time for exercises, demonstrations, and working on problems students bring to class. The exercises at the end of most chapters use data sets shipped with the SAS system. Students can also work through the exercises at their own pace after the conclusion of the course. This course can be taught as a public course or as an on-site course. Comprehensive textbooks for students are included in the course fee.
