Hi Rob -
I, and every SAS programmer I know at work (granted not a large group),
all have the SAS primer. I use it the most frequently of any text
reference (so 4th most often, after online docs and a google search for
the terms . . and SAS-L archives, of course!)
It's great for not remembering how to change character to numeric and
back, that sort of thing.
Definitely not an in depth reference though; most of my questions end up
beyond the scope of it.
But I'd still recommend having it, for everyone.
Just my 2 cents
(side note: I have the red primer - for SAS v6 I think . . everyone else I
know has the purple one for v8, I assume there is (or will be) a new color
to equate to version 9; might as well get the newest, if available)

Please respond to
Do you recommed this source ..
Dear SAS Users,
I'm a novice but I wonder whether it's worth buying a book listed below
Art Carpenter, Carpenter's Complete Guide to the SAS Macro Language, 2nd
Edition (2004). If I haven't the slightest idea about macro in SAS am I
capable of learning form this book?
I wonder about buying one of this two book (which of them do you
1. The Little SAS Book: A Primer, Third Edition (2003)
2. Applied Statistics and the SAS Programming Language (5th Edition)
I saw Cody's book 4th edition - does it differ form 5th edition?
I would appreciate any help
