A handbook of statistical analyses using SAS by Geoff Der

By Geoff Der

The authors lined many themes in utilized records, yet they did not point out something approximately time sequence research. i'm dissatisfied after interpreting this booklet. the most important challenge with this ebook is that it truly is overly simplistic - normally just one strategy is illustrated for every subject - for instance, in cluster research, merely hierarchical clustering was once pointed out and there has been not anything approximately partitional set of rules. The authors basically used very small datasets, which missed the largest strength of SAS, the facility to deal with huge datasets. The authors additionally revealed all uncooked datasets within the ebook, which took quite a lot of space.

The authors may still learn Venables and Ripley's sleek utilized facts with SPlus first. Venables/Ripley made an outstanding instance on the right way to write an utilized records ebook utilizing a particular software program.
