Search the web with google for the phrase "learning SAS" (incl. quotes). The internet nowadays is a good resource of knowledge, both directly and indirectly. I very regularly search the web for any (statistical) subject and it is amazing what is available there. A book that I would recommend is 'The Little SAS Book : A Primer, Second Edition' by Lora D. Delwiche and Susan J. Slaughter; it also comes along with the SAS 8.02 installation disks. Knowing to program in SPSS and many more statistical packages and programming languages I found this a very suited relatively small booklet to initially learn the elementary part of SAS programming and use. After that I was able to dive up any SAS book or official documentation in my search for further knowledge.
See the URL (here divided over two lines!!! due to its length);

I wish I had a webcam to show you the boring view from my window.

Subject: Newbie needs help--Any suggestions on where to learn SAS?
I'm a SPSS user looking to convert to SAS, primarily for survey analyses
purposes. I could use some suggestions, testimonials, etc. on the best way to
get quickly ramped up on SAS.
I already have the SAS Learning Edition, but I really need more help. My goal
is to get at least a base programming certificate. I know that I can take
(expensive!) courses through SAS, or purchase (suspiciously?) cheap e-learning
courses at a number of sites. But I work at a tiny company that can't pay for
my training, and so I need to know what would give me the most for my money.
So I hope you pros might have some sage advice for me. Can any of you give a
recommendation for a good intro online course or in-person Northern California
class, based on your personal experience?
[NOTE: please don't send me ads. Don't need that; I've already done my research
and probably already seen your site! thx]
