quizes after each chapter. Then, reviewed the book contents and all
problems again. Took the test in October and passed it. I changed a

You can just study the guidebook alone. Doing the programming exercises
in the accompanied CD is helpful for understanding the contents, but not
absolutely necessary as long as you fully understand and memorize some
important details. The information is massive, you got to put them in
an organized way so that you are able to retrieve them easily and fast
when you are taking test. Answering 70 questions in 2 hrs, there is a
plenty of time. Good luck!
I realize that studying for certification using this book helped increase my programming efficiency as well. This book is full of useful techniques that you could use in your daily programming practices. After the certification test, I still use this book as a reference book. I have bought many SAS-related books, but this certification prep book is very useful and comprehensive for beginner- or intermediate-level SAS users. If I had known this book earlier, I would not have had to waste money for other SAS books that I had actually bought.
I strongly recommend this book for your test preparation AND daily SAS programming practices.
Then I bought the Practice Exam from the SAS institute to get a feel of the exam questions, and trust me guys, you have to have the practice test in order to know how the real test is going to be. It helps a lot.
I bought the book in June end, read it a couple of times while summarizing the important subjects, took the exam in September and passed it.
