Roger has a good point. (As always!) If you know what kind
of statistical analyses you want to do, then you may find the
discussion in the SAS Online Docs to be an excellent starting
place. You can read them for free if you go to the SAS website:
and fill out the form to get a free username and password.
Then go to the SAS/Stat documentation. They have extensive intro-
ductions for most of the general categories of anlayses in SAS/STAT,
with examples and guidance about which procs to use in which cases.
See if all that material doesn't provide a good starting point.

Yeah, I love getting all those 'vacation' replies from people who
haven't set up their systems to ignore mailing lists. It livens
up the gaps in between spams and virus payloads. :-)
