What do you like best?
I like that SAS is very intuitive. For a new coder like me, SAS is clear about when you are making mistakes and where the errors are. It clearly highlights keywords and procedural words so that you know you are doing things correctly.
What do you dislike?
The "help" function is not as useful as I would like. If I'm having trouble with my code in SAS, I am more likely to google my issue than to use the Help tab within SAS
Recommendations to others considering the product
Depending on what statistical software you are used to, SAS may be great or it may be confusing. Many of my coworkers prefer to use R, although with the datasets were analyze, SAS has proved to be very useful. However, if you are new to coding, I would recommend SAS as a way to get started. It is a fairly intuitive introduction to statistical coding and analysis.
