NOTE: The Little SAS Book(s) and more...

Over the years, Susan Slaughter and Lora Delwiche have produced a fantastic series of books for priming new users and reminding more seasoned SAS practitioners of the key elements of using SAS. Having produced the books listed below, they are now putting the finishing touches to "The Little SAS Book for Enterprise Guide 4.2". I hear it's up to their usual standard, and I feel sure it'll be valued by all who have the benefit of receiving a copy.

All of the following books are published by SAS Publishing under the SAS Press name (once called Books By Users - BBU).
  • Coming to SAS from SPSS: A Programming Approach
  • The Little SAS Book: A Primer (a classic, now in its fourth edition)
  • The Little SAS Book for Enterprise Guide 4.1
  • The Little SAS Book for Enterprise Guide 3.0
Courses can be a valuable way to learn, but they can be expensive too. When did you last read a book that made you a better SAS practitioner? Take a look through the SAS Publishing catalog, you'll be surprised at the range and depth of the topics.

Recent SAS Press releases include:
  • Radical Action for Radical Times: Expert Advice for Creating Business Opportunity in Good or Bad Economic Times, by Jonathan Hornby
  • Analyzing and Interpreting Continuous Data Using JMP: A Step-by-Step Guide, by Jose Ramirez and Brenda Ramirez
  • Output Delivery System: The Basics and Beyond, by Lauren Haworth, Cynthia L. Zender, and Michele Burlew
Whether you're looking to learn more about SAS syntax, or using SAS within your profession, or helping your organisation to make the best of the current difficult times, SAS Press has something for you.
