Do you already have some basic SAS programming knowledge? Do you want to enter the highly demanded SAS/data industry and become a SAS programing professional? If you answer yes, then “SAS Programming on Data Manipulation and Preparation: Part 1” is the right course for you!
Almost all the data needs to be manipulated/prepared before data analysis. Every SAS programmer is required to master SAS data manipulation and preparation programming skills, which are critical and highly demanded in the SAS/data industries. This course can also help prepare you for SAS Base Programming Certification Exam.
This course is at the beginner to intermediate level. It is designed to help you master SAS Base Programming Essentials on Data Manipulation and Preparation. This course (Part 1) is focusing at variables’ level. The topics includes Creating labels and formats, Modifying character and numeric data values, Working with SAS dates, Generating data with DO loops, Processing variables with ARRAYS. The next course “SAS Programming on Data Manipulation and Preparation: Part 2” will be focusing at data sets modifications including data merging, combining, transforming, etc.
As the same as my other SAS programming courses, this course utilizes
· Hands-on coding in SAS programming environment as well as detailed step-by-step explanations to make your learning easy and fast.
· The course supplements (including SAS codes and data used in lectures) are easy downloadable for your own practice.
· The SAS code and data are compatible across all SAS programming environments.

It is using the same SAS program used in the lecture 'Read data delimited by blanks using list input' in the course 'SAS programming for beginners'.
Before I become an online SAS programming instructor, I have worked as a statistician/SAS programmer for 7 years. I am a SAS certified professional and highly proficient in SAS programming, and I enjoy teaching as well. Now I would like to use my SAS programming skills to help people learning SAS in an easy and affordable way.
