Subject: Re: SAS "Learning Edition" ($125/copy) announced at SUGI 27
Depends on! If you get all the books, you need to learn more about SAS, I
think it's ok. If you get only a CD, it's much too expensive! For that I'd
pay something around 1.25$. Ok, maybe 12.5$, but certainly not more!
For $125 you'll get a lot of good shareware to do and learn almost anything
you want. If you have to learn SAS because your enterprise uses it, just
use your enterprise's license!
