This document will tell you the latest news on the transition to
Windows and will point you to a set of SAS installation instructions.
After completing the installation, new users should complete
the tutorials **An Introduction to SAS/EIS**, found at
**http://www.math.wpi.edu/Course_Materials/SAS/sas02_eis.html**,
and **An Introduction to SAS/INSIGHT I: Elementary Concepts**,
found at
**http://www.math.wpi.edu/Course_Materials/SAS/sas02_inI.html**.

These tutorials are designed to introduce the novice SAS user to two components of SAS statistical software: SAS/INSIGHT, a graphical environment for interactive data analysis, and SAS/EIS, a component of SAS that is used as an interface between the user and a set of SAS programs, called macros. Both programs are heavily used in statistics courses at WPI.

Users who want to do
more with SAS/INSIGHT are invited to the continuation of the tutorial,
**An Introduction to SAS/INSIGHT II: Advanced Concepts**,
found at
**http://www.math.wpi.edu/Course_Materials/SAS/sas02_inII.html**.

Introduction to SAS/EIS, which you'll use to run SAS macros (programs) for labs and specialized applications.

Introduction to SAS/INSIGHT I: Elementary Concepts. This is the minimal tutorial you should do to be familiar with the basics of SAS/INSIGHT, a graphically-oriented data analysis system
