Overwhelmed by too much information? Left hanging without quite enough direction? If you will find this book is just right for getting an easy, yet complete introduction to using SAS software. This task-oriented handbook presents SAS software in a format that is inviting and convenient. Each task is presented in a self-contained two-page layout complete with examples, graphics, and cross-references to other SAS software documentation. Topics range from concepts of the SAS language to using basic statistical procedures and debugging programs. The modular and concise format makes this an ideal tutorial for concentrated study and a great quick reference for particular tasks. Beginning and elementary users will be pleasantly surprised by this unusually appalling approach to mastering basic programming tasks such as inputting data, modifying and combining data sets, and summering and presenting data with the MEANS, PLOT, FREQ, and PRINT procedures. The beginner will also learn about more advanced topics such as arrays, RETAIN statements, and transport data sets.
