SAP Bestsellers
The SAP Pricing Guide Print E-mail

"sappricingguide.jpgSAP® Pricing is one of the most flexible functionalities in the SAP system, but it's also one of the most complex. Project team members and consultants alike avoid having to deal with Pricing. Why is that?

Although the standard SAP documentation explains SAP's individual Pricing capabilities, it does not clearly illustrate how the individual pieces connect as a whole. Pricing expert Matthias Liebich provides this missing link with The Ultimate SAP Pricing Guide."

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...

"SAP MM-Functionality and Technical Configuration" Print E-mail
by Martin Murray  

"This detailed reference book explains the basic aspects of each area within MM before exploring their specific functionality. Readers stand to benefit quickly by developing a comprehensive understanding of MM and by learning how it works and interacts with other SAP modules."

JR's Take: "This book is a must for the aspiring SAP MM consultant, or for those who are looking to further their SAP MM know-how. SAP Press puts out quality titles, and this one is the beneficiary of frequent updates, so it will be in sync with any changes due to the ECC 5.0, or ECC 6.0 and ERP 6.0 platform."

"Configuring SAP R/3 FI/CO" Print E-mail
by Quentin Hurst and David Nowak

"Configure the FI and CO Modules to Meet All Your Business Requirements. Configuring SAP R/3 FI/CO is the only book of its kind: a detailed, practical guide to configuring R/3's two most popular modules."

JR's Take: "I have collaborated professionally with Quentin and David, the authors of this book, back in the heyday of SAP, and I can vouch firsthand for how knowledgeable they are. This book is considered the definitive guide to FI/CO configuration and anyone interested in an FI/CO career needs to look at this one. Only downside? The book does not cover ERP 6.0 so it won't have all the new bells and whistles like the new SAP General Ledger."
