    Hi, my name is yamini. i want to share my experience with base sas certicication.
    my suggeton is dont attaend the test without full preparation.you wont get the questions you are looking here. these are simple compared to real exam.
    I attempted the exam first time and got 54%
    next time i attempted the exam and got 63%
    matter of 2 questions .but still failed.i had very bad experience with it.
    i dont want to give the test again:::::
    plese be care ful.dont waste your valuble time and money
    ALl the best

      Hi Yamini, i take it as a practice. If you get 5- 7 questions similar to this kind or atleast you already answered one, would not it be at an advantage by 7 min. You can save time and can be used it on difficult questions.

    Yamini, Thanks and that is what exam are set for. I mean they ask simple question but test how critically we think and get the right answer. You mean do not go to exam and think question are similar to these one!
    Do you recall any question that was weirdly asked? Like I posted in other question, My answersheet says 2000 (c) but the answer should d missing value.
    Any tips and book or online website you like to suggest? I postponed my exam 1 month behind.
    Thank for sharing and helping us to pass in one shot.
