Subject:      SAS online-tutorial - pharmaceutical company
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1

Hello all,

I am new to SAS. I was wondering if you could help me answer some of my questions.

1. Is learning SAS through e-tutorial online at sufficient to be able to confidently apply for a SAS programmer job in a pharmaceutical company?

2. I saw that SAS has numerous components like SAS/ACCESS,SAS/CONNECT,BASE SAS,SAS/Datawarehousing etc. I would like to know which of these componets should I learn about to be able to handle databases in a pharmaceutical company?

3. What do the main entry level SAS jobs in pharmaceutical companies involve?

I am a computer science Master's student and wish to extend my skill set so that I can i ncrease my chances of getting a job. My programming skills are really good and I do have expertise in databases.

Do you think it is wise to buy this online tutorial? What should I do and what software should I mainly concentrate on.

Thank you all for your answers.
