SAS Certification Practice Exam: Advanced Programming for SAS 9
This practice exam tests the same knowledge and skills as the SAS Advanced Programming for SAS 9 certification exam. The format of the questions on both exams is identical, and all topics on the practice exam are proportionally weighted to match the Certification exam.

You should be aware of the following differences between this practice exam and the official Certification exam:

  • The practice exam contains 50 questions. The number of questions and the time limit for the SAS Advanced Programming for SAS 9 certification exam may change from time to time. Please refer to the SAS Global Certification Web site for the most current information.
  • The practice exam is delivered to you in one continuous HTML page. The Certification exam questions are delivered one per screen.
  • There is no timer in the practice exam. To best simulate the designed pace of the Certification exam, you should allow 85 minutes for the practice exam.

Successful performance on the practice exam does not guarantee successful performance on the Certification exam.

Social Network Analytics Business Knowledge Series
This course discusses how to leverage social networks for analytical purposes. Obviously, when we say "social networks," many people think of Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and so on. These are all examples of networks that connect people using either friendship or professional relationships. In this course, we zoom out and provide a much more general definition of a social network. In fact, we define a social network as a network of nodes that are connected using edges. Both nodes and edges can be defined in various ways, depending on the setting. This course starts by describing the basic concepts of social networks and their applications in marketing, risk, fraud, and HR. It then defines various social metrics and illustrates how they can be used for community mining. The course also discusses how social networks can be used for predictive analytics. The course provides a sound mix of both theoretical and technical insights, as well as practical implementation details, and is illustrated by several real-life cases. The instructor extensively reports on both his research and consulting experience in the field. References to background material such as selected papers, tutorials, and guidelines are also provided.
