This is exactly what I do. I convert my SAS problems into Stata
problems. So you might ask so why the complaint? Well, there are a lot
of good SAS intro books out there. One of the best is "Applied
Statistics and the SAS Programming Language." Why can't we have an
equivalent?

What Nick said about using our own data is true to a certain extent.
The data used does not necessarily have to be an issue. And is not a
major one. Students will still learn regardless of the data.
