Not knowing this could, for some people, be frustrating enough, for some, to at least consider giving up on the whole thing before learning the contents in this book.
After receiving the book, one of the first things you will do is to download the free data files that go with the problems in the book. Apparently, these were originally on a CD that came with book, but there is no longer a CD, and the files have to be downloaded from the net. That is easy enough to do by following the instructions in the book.
Ok, so far no problem. The difficulty occurs when you try to write the first code, on page 5 of the book. The problem is that "infile "c: Very frustrating.
The file is on your computer, you can see it, and yet the program cannot recognize that it exists. I spent quite a few hours trying to figure out what the problem was, and what to do about it.
This should be explained in the book, but unfortunately, it is not. Essentially, the data files need to be uploaded into the virtual machine, whichever one you are using.
Not "imported", not "downloaded", not referenced to the C drive on your computer as is stated in the book, but uploaded from your C drive to the virtual machine. Here are the steps after you have already downloaded the data files from the internet to your computer: Go to "Myfolders" in the interface, right click on the mouse, and go to "upload".
Browse to the folder on your computer that contains the data files you downloaded from the internet. Highlight and select all of the files, and upload them to the virtual machine in "Myfolders". Now, in the SAS code window, instead of writing infile "c: NOW you are cooking!
It is so simple, yet not at all described in the book, even though this is essential knowledge for almost all SAS users who are learning it on their home computers. For those wanting to learn the language of SAS, and just starting out, an early frustration and setback, where nothing works, nothing is explained, and it is not your fault, can be very frustrating and even discouraging. Hopefully, this post will help others to get up and running with SAS without any hitches.
I hope this post is helpful to all. I read this book from front to end. I practiced with the problem sets. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.
All of Cody's books are good ways to learn more about SAS. If you want to get certified you need to get the University Edition of SAS and work through their prep guides. The Base SAS prep guide has problems.
You should work with Cody to start so you learn something about SAS- you'll need to know a fair amount to compensate for the problems in the study guides. I've taken three graduate stats classes that had the students use SAS to do the work.
Each prefaced itself by the statement "this is not a programming class. What a frustrating trip! Not only does SAS use an ancient 's style programming architecture, they reuse keywords radically differently in different contexts, think of data tables differently from other familiar software, and their online help is vast and a mystery in itself.
Over half the time I spent in class was just trying to figure out how SAS worked. So I bought this book. It doesn't teach statistics. It teaches the programming architecture behind the software. It does this very well with a logical progression, clear examples, and well-chosen exercises half with programming solutions.
