To set up your SAS environment or configure a personal PC for SAS, proceed to http://www.wpi.edu/Academics/CCC/Help/Software/Installs/sas912.html.
To learn to use SAS in MA 2611 and 2612 at WPI, new users should consult the tutorials An Introduction to SAS/INSIGHT I: Elementary Concepts, found at http://www.math.wpi.edu/Course_Materials/SAS/sas02_inI.html, and An Introduction to SAS/EIS, found at http://www.math.wpi.edu/Course_Materials/SAS/sas02_eis.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.
