About the Author:

Robert Virgile is an independent SAS trainer and consultant, with 30 years of experience developing and teaching SAS classes. He has published numerous papers and written problem-solving contests for the Northeast SAS Users Group (NESUG) and SAS Global Forum. Due to his wealth of SAS knowledge, Robert was barred from participating in the NESUG SAS Bowl.

All the tricks and secrets are revealed, enabling you to write SAS macros that work like MAGIC.

Review:

"Long known for his in-depth understanding of all aspects of Base SAS including the macro language, Bob Virgile is also well known as an instructor and trainer, and this book is a strong example of his craft. SAS Macro Language Magic: Discovering Advanced Techniques pokes and prods the reader into learning not just the why, but also the how of the macro language.

Bob intends for the reader to learn not just syntax, but also how SAS thinks. The examples provided succinctly illustrate the points that he is making, and these are followed by a number of problems that will test the reader's understanding." --Art Carpenter, CALOXY
