5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding
I thought that this book is very expensive but that was not true! This book goes beyond the reader expectations. It is the key to success in SAP R/3 FI.

3.0 out of 5 stars Neatly written but already out-dated
It appears that this book was written using vers 2.2 - we are already implementing in vers 4.0b. Arguably, many of the processes have not changed - but it is annoying to buy an expensive book that was published in 1998 when vers 3.1 was well established by the time of publication. I still got a few good tips from the book but recommend it for first-time users rather...

By A Customer
This review is from: Using SAP R/3 FI: Beyond Business Process Reengineering (Hardcover)
It appears that this book was written using vers 2.2 - we are already implementing in vers 4.0b. Arguably, many of the processes have not changed - but it is annoying to buy an expensive book that was published in 1998 when vers 3.1 was well established by the time of publication. I still got a few good tips from the book but recommend it for first-time users rather than advanced users or consultants (very little on configuration), particularly given the price (the publisher should consider a cheaper paperback version).

4.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but worth it!, 7 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Using SAP R/3 FI: Beyond Business Process Reengineering (Hardcover)
This book is easy to read and understand and resembles a user manual with menu paths, explanation and step by step approach. I find it useful as a quick reference. The author also provides additional guidance via email which is a great help.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book of easy reading, 6 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Using SAP R/3 FI: Beyond Business Process Reengineering (Hardcover)
It's an excellent book for both beginners and professionals who wish to pursue their career on SAP's financial module. The best part thing of the book is its plain, argot-free English, which makes it extremely easy for the readers who are not native English speakers. With a little background in Financial Acounting, one should not have difficulties in reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book for freshers as well as professionals, 27 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Using SAP R/3 FI: Beyond Business Process Reengineering (Hardcover)
This book serves not only as a step by step guide to the various functionalities but can also serve as a useful guide to FI professionals who are stuck up in a particular problem.
A must have title.

3.0 out of 5 stars Please Don't BUY/WASTE $$$ on costly SAP book., 25 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Using SAP R/3 FI: Beyond Business Process Reengineering (Hardcover)
SAP readers should avoid wasting money on this pricey book. (Try Using SAP R/3 (Special Edition) by Jonathan Blain instead - it's more value-added!). It's simply not worth it. You are not getting the quality at the cost pegged to it. There are many good jumpstart books in the market that provides good treatment of SAP financials and financial accouting systems (AR/AP/GL/Costings/Financial Report Writing). This is one book that everyone should boycott in the name of knowledge-sharing for the greater society. Join a consultancy/business partner firm, and you are treated to better and updated SAP versions without giving support to profiteering individuals. Publishers like John Wiley should blacklist profiteering professionals/individuals who are out to exploit and profiteer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Most costly SAP book, out-dated, but only one on FI, no CO, 16 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Using SAP R/3 FI: Beyond Business Process Reengineering (Hardcover)
This is the most expensive SAP book on the market, and I can't understand why, except perhaps because it is the only one covering FI decently. There's no content on CO, and it's based on an old version of SAP. Nevertheless, it provides some helpful insights. But the price is outrageous and not justified--on what basis does it rate as the most expensive SAP book on the market? The publisher should stop gouging and start discounting, since the book's worth is just like yesterday's paper, good for a few days and in special cases, but worthless to many, to be superceded by newer entries (unless it is destined to be a classic, which it ain't). Buy under protest!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book I have come accross for FI module., 23 Sep 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Using SAP R/3 FI: Beyond Business Process Reengineering (Hardcover)
This is the best book I have seen so far for the entry level to expert level in FI. Its easy to follow with step by step instructions in simple english language. And you just want to keep on reading more and more. This book is unique in itself because of this reason alone. Even a person don't have the basic knowledge ofSAP R/3, can follow this book with no problem.
This book has made my life easier during my training class of SAP R/3 FI module. Every one must have this book, if they have do any thing with FI fuctional module.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT a Configuration Book on SAP FI, 18 Sep 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Using SAP R/3 FI: Beyond Business Process Reengineering (Hardcover)
I paid good money to buy this book only to realize that the book does not talk about how to configure FI. It does not cover some basic concepts such as creating master records, chart of accounts, Account Groups etc., which are a MUST learn for any one wanting to get a good idea about IMG and Configuration aspects of FI. If you are an end-user of SAP FI and want to get more details on each of the screen fields, then perhaps you could buy this book. Otherwise dont waste your time and money.
