Hi guys,

A bank has interviewed me for a short-term contract and requires me to sit a SAS skills test. Usually these sorts of contracts ask for an Excel skills test, so I've sat dozens of those, but this is the first time someone wants to test my SAS skills as well. Any idea what sort of questions they'd be asking? I'm assuming they use SAS EG, as most banks do.

My background in SAS includes: using Base SAS at uni for all our assignments, and then using SAS EG in the workforce. I haven't used SAS for the past 3 years because the contracts I've been working in lately have opted for SAP and Tableau. 

Any ideas about SAS topics I could brush up for a skills test please?

disappointing.

Yes, because Geekzone is exactly the type of forum that people visit to ask advice about special forces training.

When I was 19 we used to make jokes about how SAS coding sounds like the special forces. But then we grew up. Funny how growing up only happens to a few of us. 

I'm clearly not going to get a single intelligent response from this forum. This is why everyone hates IT geeks.

So you grew out of humour and grew into arrogance?

Well done folks. Your bad behaviour, snarky comments, out of place notes made this user ask to have the account removed.

You really should grow up.
