"SAP R/3 For Everyone"
"SAP R/3 For Everyone: Step-by-Step Instructions, Practical Advice, and Other Tips and Tricks for Working with SAP"
by Jim Mazzullo and Peter Wheatley

"SAP R/3 For Everyone is the nontechnical user's guide to working with SAP R/3, the leading business enterprise software product in the world. Written and road-tested by experienced SAP R/3 users and trainers, this book saves typical SAP R/3 users time and trouble by providing them with the universal skills needed to work with any module of this complex software."

JR's Take: "If you're looking for a crash course into SAP on a user level, this might be the best bok to start with. It sells well, probably because it is written by field-tested SAP trainers. The only thing I would be careful about is version compatibility...

This book is copyright 2005 and is largely based on R/3 systems, so it will be ideal for 4.6 and 4.7 users, which is still many in the SAP world. ERP 6.0 may have some different GUI looks that aren't covered in this book, though many of the fundamentals will still apply."

Book Description: "SAP R/3 can be used effectively by anyone who can perform a handful of simple procedures that are employed in nearly every SAP R/3 transaction. The authors explain these procedures in plain English, using illustrations and real-world examples.
