Do you know?
SAS has changed the way it was previously conducting certification exam and now they have hybrid model for evlauting the candidate. To get certify for SAS A00-232 certification you have to now implement the actual code using SAS Browser based studio which is hosted on the Cloud as well as you need to answer approx 15 standard multiple choice question and answer. Hence, now memorizing the question and answer would not help, you literally write the code to pass this SAS Advanced certification. Since last 6 year HadoopExam is helping thousands of learner to become SAS expert by providing training material as well as certification preparation material. And to continue the same we are launching SAS Certified Professional Advanced Programming Scenario based question and answer where we are providing, step by step solution for the each scenario and also help you get the answer to the question which are based on these scenario. This is a another practical SAS base advanced programming exam. At the same time using the scenarios, various coding challenges would be given and you have to write the SAS code and then to test your code you have to answer the multiple choice or short answer-based questions. Even for this exam SAS is going to check your code as well, and you have done the things which is asked in the exam or not. SAS uses some macro to evluate your code as well as evluator manually check the code. In a single scenario you would be given 1 or more questions. This exam launched since June-2019. Without having or doing any coding you can not clear this certification exam, which make this credential more valuable then previously available. That’s the reason we highly recommend you should prepare exam in order A00-215 , A00-231 & A00-232 together. There are two sections in the exam as below.

check the few basic scoring. For each scenario there 1 to 3
multiple choice or short answer-based questions would be asked.
And you need to answer them correctly to score.Once you submit

Answer: On the SAS website this is the answer given
A scaled score converts the raw score (number of test questions answered correctly) to a consistent and standardized scale and is a common practice in certification programs to ensure that all forms of an exam have the same level of difficulty. With the complexity of practical testing and multiple case studies in the Predictive Modeling Using SAS Enterprise Miner exam, we use scaled scoring for this purpose. Which means that candidates taking the exam will have a consistent level of difficulty regardless of the set of exam questions presented.
