SAP Basis is one of the most important functions in the SAP ecosystem, as it touches so many components of SAP, such as system administration, security, user interface (UI) and development. Interestingly, though, there aren’t that many books pertaining directly to SAP Basis. That’s why we thought it was a good idea to bring together this following list of six books that cover Basis from different angles. We hope the list is helpful both to working SAP Basis administrators who want to get better at their jobs and to Basis consultants.
SAP FI/CO Questions and Answers: FI/CO remains a bread-and-butter SAP module, and this book offers a Basis overview grounded in the context of FI/CO. Don’t be fooled by the title; this book touches on Basis, ABAP, and a bunch of other modules, such as MM, SD and PP, so it can be of use to a lot of different job functions.
SAP Security Interview Questions, Answers, and Explanations: Security is a foundational concept within Basis, and this book prepares you for the security- and audit-related questions that can come up in an interview.
SAP Basis Certification Questions: Basis certification can add some market value to working Basis administrators, or help consultants break into the field. Whatever your role, it’ll help to be acquainted with the nuts and bolts of Basis certification.
SAP Security: SAP Security Essentials: What’s more essential than securing an SAP system? This book covers the fundamentals you need in order to put an SAP system in lockdown.
SAP R/3 Transaction Codes: Finding transaction codes can be a headache for SAP Basis administrators. This book lists them so you don’t have to hunt them down.
ABAP Objects: One of the interesting features of this book, here translated into English for the first time, is that it comes with two CD-ROMs containing a test version of SAP Basis for 2000/NT.
As always, be sure to read user reviews and book excerpts before deciding which book, if any, is right for your needs.
