TOP REVIEWS FROM PREDICTIVE MODELING WITH LOGISTIC REGRESSION USING SAS
This was another great course from SAS and Coursera. I had no experience with predictive modelling prior to the course and learned quite a bit about modelling in the SAS environment.
Thank you so much to the instructor, Michael J Patetta for teaching this course!
Great training sets of problems. Good guidance & teaching.
