Provides an amazing foundation in SAS as a programmer/data analyst! It covers a lot of important topics to get you started using SAS in real world. It exceeded my expectations, highly recommend it!

This is a basic course in Sas programming. Although the course covers the basics I would have appreciated more practice exercises. It seems every chapter progresses very quickly from one or two practice exercises to more complicated quizzes. These exercises could be optional for those that are able to move through the course more quickly, but would be appreciated by some as repetition is really the best way to cement this type of knowledge.

Very difficult to learn online (for me anyway). The instructions in the quizzes are unclear and presume a certain baseline knowledge of the programming language. Hope to take an in-person class one day.

Utter garbage.

This is a ripoff.

The code doesn't work and the forums are filled with people all stuck on the same issue.

on top of that SAS on Demand for academics has its servers go down often so you will end up paying a lot when you have to take out another month for reasons outside of your control.
