One of my favorite parts of summer is a relaxing weekend by the pool. Summer is the time I get to finally catch up on my reading list, which has been building over the year. So, if expanding your knowledge is a goal of yours this summer, SAS Press has a shelf full of new titles for you to explore. To help navigate your selection we asked some of our authors what SAS books were on their reading lists for this summer?
Teresa Jade, co-author of SAS® Text Analytics for Business Applications: Concept Rules for Information Extraction Models, has already started The DS2 Procedure: SAS Programming Methods at Work by Peter Eberhardt. Teresa reports that the book “is a concise, well-written book with good examples. If you know a little bit about the SAS DATA step, then you can leverage what you know to more quickly get up to speed with DS2 and understand the differences and benefits.”
Derek Morgan, author of The Essential Guide to SAS® Dates and Times, Second Edition, tells us his go-to books this summer are Art Carpenter’s Complete Guide to the SAS® REPORT Procedure and Kirk Lafler's PROC SQL: Beyond the Basics Using SAS®, Third Edition. He also notes that he “learned how to use hash objects from Don Henderson’s Data Management Solutions Using SAS® Hash Table Operations: A Business Intelligence Case Study.”
Chris Holland co-author of Implementing CDISC Using SAS®: An End-to-End Guide, Revised Second Edition, recommends Richard Zink’s JMP and SAS book, Risk-Based Monitoring and Fraud Detection in Clinical Trials Using JMP® and SAS®, which describes how to improve efficiency while reducing costs in trials with centralized monitoring techniques.
