I have been doing R/3 Technical Consulting for two years and this is my one and only reference book. It explains the basics of the system architecture and covers major areas, such as user management, authorization profiles, spool system, background processing, basic system monitoring and database concepts (Oracle only).
The information presened in this book is well organized and very helpful on the day-to-day system management.
Don't buy this book if you are looking for detailed information on system installation, ABAP programming and performance tuning.

A good book on SAP BASIS programming. The first two chapters are highly recommended. The rest of the book is well written but applies to such a narrow part of R3 (the BASIS layer) that only system administrators will get much out of it.

Considering r/3 is now in release 4.6.a this book was a complete waste of freakin' time and I found myself taking more courses at SAP University. This guy needs to release an updated version of this book asap!!!

At 608 pages, this book will take you a while to get through it! However, it is worth the time spent, since it covers just about all of the topics in the R/3 Admin arena. I've found good general information on each topic I've needed to research, especially some that many books never seem to cover! Does not dwell on ABAP/4 as many SAP books do. Don't expect extensive in-depth coverage on any area in particular. The author would need two volumes to cover that much ground. Would recommend to potential R/3 Admins and ABAPers as well. Well worth the money spent!

This book provides a comprehensive guide of SAP/3 system.I found this book extremely helpful and I was able to utilize a great deal of information. Don't expect a lot of ABAP/4 programming information.The problem is that the information in this book is specific to UNIX/ORACLE enviournment. Don't expect information about NT/MS SQL server. A more appropriate title of this book would be " The
SAP/3 handbook in UNIX/ORACLE enviournment. Chapter 12-14 provides good
overview for SAP/3 administrator. Overall, the
book is worth its value.

The 97 edition is almost 1,000 pages, and covers almost all areas of Basis administration. As others have pointed out, it ignores ABAP/4, but there are a few books out on that subject anyway. The objective is to help a Basis Admin get a quick handle on things, and is pretty thorough, from a practical standpoint. Defintely worth the money.

This is an excellent book especally for SAP Basis administrators working with Oracle DB. I wish there was one for Informix. Also multiple installations on one system were ignored as was installation tips and tricks and heterogenous installations.But overall one of the BEST sap books I have read. Great going Jose'.

It gives a very detailed introduction on SAP internal technical architecture which allow people with Unix/Oracle background to have a quick undertstanding on SAP R/3 technical details. This book is very helpful for those people performing system administration or integration design with other systems.

The author exhibits excellent command over SAP R/3 concepts and is well written as well.However the book does not go in details of many advanced features of ABAP like RFCs and other interface technologies offered by R/3 system, essential for any Technical Consultant.

This is one of the most comrehensive books on Basis/System Admin. in SAP on the market today. Understandably it does not cover ABAP (the topic will cover a book in its own right)and there are a few areas that it does not go deep enough on but overall worth the money.
