What students are saying:

Thank you Billie. I really like how you also provided extra visuals to demonstrate a point.
Taking Billie's SAS Applied Analytics Course was a great experience. She has a very thorough knowledge of the subject. I would not hesitate to recommend a course that she was teaching and will certainly look to take another of her classes in the future.
You are one of the best instructors I have at via a SAS class!!!
