bestselling titles at SAS Global Forum 2018

“What are the Top 5 #sastips from your book that SAS users need?” Interviewing Gerhard Svolba at #SASGF.

The final figures are in! This year there was a fierce battle for the top spot of the SAS Global Forum 2018 books bestseller list.
In a nail biting finish, established SAS author, Gerhard Svolba’s, Applying Data Science: Business Case Studies Using SAS®, narrowly beat off Bill Benjamin’s latest, Exchanging Data From SAS® to Excel: The ODS Excel Destination, and the classic, SAS® Certification Prep Guide: Base Programming for SAS®9, Fourth Edition. On site sales showed a level setting for the top two but the off-site orders, using the special conference discount code, came pouring in and tipped the balance for third place, knocking Mark Jordan’s Mastering the SAS® DS2 Procedure: Advanced Data-Wrangling Techniques, Second Edition, off the podium to a solid fourth place.

The top ten list as follows:

1.       Applying Data Science: Business Case Studies Using SAS®
2.       Exchanging Data From SAS® to Excel: The ODS Excel Destination
3.       SAS® Certification Prep Guide: Base Programming for SAS®9, Fourth Edition
4.       Mastering the SAS® DS2 Procedure: Advanced Data-Wrangling Techniques, Second Edition
5.       The Analytics Lifecycle Toolkit: A Practical Guide for an Effective Analytics Capability
6.       Practical and Efficient SAS® Programming: The Insider's Guide
7.       An Introduction to SAS(R) Visual Analytics: How to Explore Numbers, Design Reports, and Gain Insight into Your Data
8.       Carpenter's Complete Guide to the SAS(R) Macro Language, Third Edition
9.       Big Data Analytics with SAS: Get actionable insights from your Big Data using the power of SAS
10.     The SAS® Programmer's PROC REPORT Handbook: ODS Companion

Congratulations, Gerhard! A great book that illustrates the benefits of analytics, how to gain more insight into your data, and how to make better decisions. In eight entertaining and real-world case studies, Gerhard combines data science and advanced analytics with business questions, illustrating them with data and SAS code.

    It is always one of my highlights at SAS Global Forum to visit the SAS Press booth and see the many SAS Press books that cover #machinelearning #ai #analytics #dataprep and #datascience in depth and breadth. For this really shows how large and vital the SAS Community is in working and sharing in this area.
    Dear SAS Community: thanks a lot in your interest in my work and my ideas! This is the highest reward, an author can get.
    Sian: thanks for sharing the experience from the SAS Press booth.
