Once again SAS and Coursera have teamed up to create a fantastic course. They start with SAS SQL programming, followed by SAS macro programming and finish with SAS Advanced programming techniques covering advanced functions, arrays, hash objects and utility procedures. Very well done and I came out a far more knowledgeable SAS programmer. Kudos to the instructors and content designers.

This course is really great to improve and extend knowledge in SAS advanced programming. Of course, to complete this program, you should have some experience in SAS programming and/or complete really carefully previous program, i.e. SAS Programmer with a lot of practice before.

Thank you for offering all the SAS courses in Coursera. They are truly well prepared, and presented in the most professional manners one can find. Well done SAS Institute, you never disappoint! (and I was first introduced to SAS in 1987!)

If you already have experience with other Programming Languages, this course would be a great introduction for you to get familiar with SAS syntax. Don't be scared by the word "Advanced" in the title ;)

Very useful covering some more advanced topics that are hard to crack on one's own (such as the PICTURE format and functions).
