Hi,
I am new to Stata, (formally a dedicated SAS user), I would really
appreciate it if you could let me know some good links/books/material on how
to learn Stata really quickly.  Tutorial type stuff would be ideal.
Many Thanks
Sam
PS I have looked into web based courses from Stata, however, they don't
start till September, I need to get started immediately.
Useful resources for SAS users converting to Stata are at

http://www.cpc.unc.edu/services/computer/presentations/statatutorial

and at

http://www.cpc.unc.edu/services/computer/presentations/sas_to_stata

THese were produced by Phil Bardsley and Dan Blanchette and described at the 2003 North Amarican Stata User Group (NASUG) meeting in 1993, whose page is at

http://ideas.repec.org/s/boc/asug03.html


You might also like to refer to my presentation and handout "From datasets to resultssets in Stata" at the UK Stata User Meeting, whose page is at

http://ideas.repec.org/s/boc/usug04.html

and which describes Stata resultssets, which are the nearest Stata equivalent to SAS output data sets.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes

Roger
