"This book is detailed, systematic, and easy to follow. Each chapter is divided into subtopics that follow one another logically, giving the reader a complete understanding of the concepts. Each topic is accompanied by vivid examples, figures, or diagrams that help the reader grasp the material. In this manner, a gradual and comprehensive knowledge is built. I will definitely use this text myself and strongly recommend it to my students as well as my colleagues."

"This is an excellent book, which provides detailed descriptions of statistical procedures followed by a corresponding short SAS program. The chapters are ordered from basics to the more complex procedures. Anyone learning statistics would appreciate this easily understandable book. Someone new to SAS can run the step-by-step examples and compare their results with the output in the text. Since the purpose of each line in the SAS/STAT procedure is explained, knowledge gained can soon be transferred to one's own data. I would also recommend this book for experienced Base SAS programmers unfamiliar with statistics who may need or wish to gain new SAS/STAT skills. "
