Reviews - What do customers think about SAP Security: SAP Security Essentials?
This Book is Garbage; don't waste your time Jul 18, 2006
I've never written a review before, but this book is so bad I feel obligated to save others from being ripped off. (I'm shipping mine back). The book is very weak. Not only are there few pages, but the type is probably 20pt, and there is much white space. Further, there is no substance as these are only answers to questions that were likely sent to a support desk. (An example from pg 34: "how is the ABAP Authority-check used?". There is a two sentence answer, and the rest of the page is empty. If this is any indication of the quality of other sapcookbook.com books, I'd advise to stay away from all of them.
Poorly Written Jul 17, 2006
This book was very sparse. It was more of a list of thoughts and notes than a book. The book provided no real value, other than to provide a few settings and copnfigurations I could have learned from the SAP site.
SAP security and certification review Jun 16, 2006
I purchased this book and the SAP Basis interview questions book, and I am a believer in interview questions books now.
I do believe that these books offer quite a bit of value, and it is mainly because I am very busy and I don't have the time to learn everything. I need some help understanding what is important in SAP security, and what I can learn later.
So this interview questions book, and other like it really focus on showing you what you need to learn, and what you can ignore. I think that as a contractor I spend at least 20 hours a month reading things that I throw away. This is one book that I will keep in my drawer to refer to even now that I have a job in SAP security! Thank you SAPCOOKBOOK!
transaction code lists, FAQ, and little else Jun 16, 2006
This is not a comprehensive book about SAP Security - it is more of a compilation of just the information that I needed. At first I was wondering why this book isn't 600 pages long like most SAP books, but then I realized the genius of this book. If you want to learn about SAP security very quickly, this book will help you understand what is important to learn.
That is an important distinction here. As a contractor I spend so much time reading and trying to figure out what it is that I should be learning - and that is why this book is so useful.
This book contains only the information that is important for someone new to SAP security to learn.
The book has several lists of transaction codes which are good to have around, and to have indexed in a nice format for easy lookup.
I know that personally I have several notebooks and excel spreadsheets and Ms word documents and text files that now I can throw away because I have them all in this book. And that itself is worth the price of this book.
But if I was new to SAP security, I would absoultely want this book because it would show me what I needed to know, and it would show me what I need to learn.
I think lots of SAP consultants would flame this book because it puts their jobs in jeopardy and they do not what you to purchase this book because BASIS and Security jobs are so easy - and this book shows just how little it takes to know SAP security and SAP basis.
different sort of book - interesting Jun 1, 2006
I'm the sort of person that, when it comes to my career, I want to know it all. These "interview questions" books are interesting. I want to know everything there is to know about my subject.
Interestingly, my roomate is also an SAP consultant, and the other day he was totally grilled on an interview - he was in Basis and was trying to a security job and I think that this book is the culprit. So managers are out there using these books as well. Interviews are getting tougher, but this is a good way for us to prepare, quiz our knowlege, and be confident that we have what it takes to pass the interview.
