East Biostat provided a concise view of SAS and placed this within the context of its application in the real world as a business intelligence tool. The job prospects in the SAS industry were emphasized. This was useful for decision-making on whether or not SAS is well suited to one’s career goals. The structure of the training worked fine, combining online class with assignments. Access to the SAS software and training materials was easy. The tutor’s availability to clear gray areas outside the class was helpful.
