SAS Certification Practice Exams

Practice exams for select exams are available for purchase through SAS and Pearson VUE. There are several differences between the practice exams purchased through SAS and the practice exams purchased through Pearson VUE. The formats are different, and you should review the features before purchasing.

SAS Practice exams available through Pearson VUE

Practice exams on the Pearson VUE platform are the new SAS practice exam standard and are designed to be as representative as possible to the actual exam in difficulty level, objective coverage, length, and look and feel. These practice exams offer an extended time limit (six hours) and the ability to pause the exam to allow you to complete it at your convenience. You have 90 days to complete the practice exam from the date of purchase.

At the end of the practice exam, a dynamic score report provides practice exam performance detail, a rationale for the correct answer, and the ability to review all questions. You may also review this score report online by logging into the SAS Certification Manager system and selecting "View Score Reports."

Practice exams available through SAS

These legacy practice exams for Base and Advanced Programming are delivered through SAS in one continuous, scrollable screen and are not on the Pearson VUE platform. These practice exams are current, provide exposure to the types of questions found on the actual exam and cover all testing objectives, however, they contain fewer questions than the newer practice exams for Base and Advanced and do not mimic the look and feel of an exam delivered through Pearson VUE.
