|Content-Type: ||text/plain; charset="us-ascii"|
Does anyone have suggestions as to building a basic SAS library for programmers with novice to intermediate skills? I have seen a few lists on Amazon but they encompass about 30 books. This is what we usually recommend: SAS Programming by Example (Cody); Professional SAS Programming Shortcuts (Aster); Applied Statistics and the SAS Programming Language (Cody & Smith); SAS Macro Programming Made Easy (Burlew). Do you have any other suggestions? Someone suggested Cody's relatively new book, SAS Programming by Example: A Programmers Guide. Do you know if this is worth purchasing (sorry, Ron, if you are on here)? We do not have the budget to purchase 30 books and so are looking to build a basic library that will support most statistical and data management tasks at a teaching hospital.
One of my colleagues has also suggested Statistical Rules of Thumb (van Belle) or Answers to Your Data Analysis Questions (Newton)? Any familiarity with these books?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
