This book takes you from a beginner to an intermediate level. A must for any one preparing for certification in SAP BI7, will save you many hours searching through internet. This book is around 650 pages where as the official SAP certification material is over 3000 pages. Explanations are thorugh and where necessary illustrated by examples.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best SAP BI Textbook Out there 14 Dec 2011
Format:Hardcover
This is by far the best SAP BI 7.0 book out there. Having spent thousands of pounds on class room training and bought all the recommended texts by the instructor, I still didn't feel super confident about BI until I invested in this book.

This book is only one I've found so far that really addresses the issues you need to know about SAP BI. It is a "no frills hands on" text book. I still can't understand how the instructure missed this one out.

I am pleased as a punch that I got it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Practical Guide to SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse 7.0 5 May 2011
By Faisal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This books is an excellent resource for any one starting in SAP BW/BI. However there are certain issues that I would like to point out.
1. Chapter 6 requires you to have a planning cube for practice which is created in chapter 12. So in order to follow the chapter properly you would need to skip to chapter 12 and then come back.
2. BI content and generic extraction which are by far the most important topics are not explained in detail. I would think that BI content should have LO Extractions from beginning to the end.
On the plus side, this book is very detailed and explains all the crucial data ware housing design principals. Right in the beginning you will learn how to design inobjects, infocubes and DSOs. The data loading is explained in detailed. There is also detailed information on how to get started with reporting and a nice bonus area that shows how to pull data into Business Objects Universe.
Anyone with little training and/or experience in SAP BI will find this book extremely useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 4 Oct 2010
By T. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I am a veteran data warehouse expert, but I am encountering BW for the first time. This book is only one I've found so far that really makes sense. It's laid out in a clear, readable fashion. It begins with the basics and then proceeds in a very logical way to explain what you need to know about BW. I am very happy with this book, thank you and well done!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book 8 July 2012
By Srinivas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am beginner into the BW world after 13 years of IT experience. It was really helpful for me to catch up with subject and do the PRACTICALS.

Authors are really helpful providing the missing data. I was able to email them and got the data as requested (still had minor issues with data).

One thing I did not understood, why the sample data was incorrect in the first place.

My Personal Opinion to make it better: There should be separate chapter for loading required data of all the chapters which would have caught these data issues which make readers more happy.

Anyway, thanks for making this book for readers like me.

I bought a used copy and the book was as good as new. Also this book is excellent to learn SAP Netweaver Business Warehouse.
Screen Shots at every stage are provided with good explanation so you do not need a tutor if you have this book.
So I would suggest just go for it!!!
