Introduction to the SAS System
 
Inputting and Outputting Data
 
Programming Algebraic and Mathematical Observations
 
Logical Statements
 
Branching with GOTO and LINK
 
Do Loops
 
Arrays
 
Manipulating Files
 
Using SAS PROCS
 
Final Advice on Becoming an SAS Programmer

"Just what the novice SAS programmer needs, particularly those who have no real programming experience. For example, branching is one of the more difficult programming commands for students to implement and the author does an excellent job of explaining this topic clearly and at a basic level. A big plus is the Common Errors section since students will definitely encounter errors." 

Robert Pavur
Management Science, University of North Texas

"Spector has done an excellent job in explaining a somewhat difficult topic in a clear and concise manner. I like the fact that screen captures are included. It allows students to better follow what is being described in the book in relation to what is on the screen." 

Philip Craiger
Computer Science, University of Nebraska, Omaha

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
