You got a good advice from SAS experts like Mary whose insistence on English
language (written/Oral) which are Primary to get through the Interviews and
preparing resume. Lot of things matter. Do not worry I was in shoes once . I
am not sure if you have graduated from what university but I assume that you
should have enough knowledge of basic syntax and knowledge of English
grammar as it is basic criteria to get an MBA seat. So I would stop on that
Coming to your Question about you want to learn SAS ( Language/ Reporting
Tool) . May be experts in the group can advice you better if you can tell
group more about what and why you want to learn SAS.If the reason is get
some Job by learning some software or tool to get a Job then your question
to the group where I can find tutorials that help me get a Job in a
particular Field ??
