The SAS Learning Report
July 2018

Dear Reader,

Summertime is in full swing here in North America. It’s the time for lazing on the beach with a good book. I’m not advocating you think about work on your vacation, but if you want a good read for those beach days, then look no further than the fine books by SAS Press.

To get you started, download this free e-book, Exploring SAS® Enterprise Miner: Special Collection, containing a collection of papers that explore predictive modeling with  SAS Enterprise Miner. SAS Enterprise Miner was first released in 1999. The interface has changed, and the capabilities have increased, but what remains the same is the potential SAS Enterprise Miner gives its users to answer some of their most difficult predictive modeling challenges. The papers included in this special collection have been selected to broaden your knowledge of SAS Enterprise Miner, its utility and productivity.

And when you’re ready to take your SAS Enterprise Miner skills up a notch? Purchase one (or more) of these books and e-books and use EM35 at checkout for a 35% discount.

Happy summer and happy reading!

Shelley Sessoms, Guest Editor
