    Posted by kri on Feb 25th, 2014

    Hi,

    I am planing to do SAP ABAP certification, but as I did not get any documentation for that. at that difficult time I got this book from Internet search.
    I red this book and I got the basic clarity about
    topics and importance areas then to master more I read SAP help.
    But the base line i used is this book.


  4. Excellent Book
