Simple, Straight to the point, Engages learners with tiny quizzes to help in learning actively. Could have more reading material as optional to dive deeper though. Overall, Great beginner course.

The course provides very strong foundations regarding the SAS software and everything is clearly and carefully explained. The practices, activities and demos are very useful. There's one thing I strongly suggest: to have intertopic exercises, that is, exercises where students can put into practice everything they have learn from the course. Specified and targeted exercises are good, but it would provide a better learning experience to mixed all the topics learnt together and use them all together.

In the beginning we were given an option of what software to download, SAS University or SAS OnDemand. Midway to the course, I realized it wasn't really an option but the later software was preferred. With the exception of this bump, the course was very well taught and provided great information for a beginner like myself. The instructor was great and responded to my concerns immediately. I did learn a lot and would recommend it to anyone willing to give it a try.
