4.0 out of 5 stars This book is VERY good, but only for the experience pgmmer.
This book is very good, but only for experience programmer who have access to SAP 3.0C (or later) and with six month of ABAP/4 experience (or better). This book will be a waste of time and money for everybody else. It is not a reference or concept type of book but HOW-TO w/ screen example. 90% of the NOVICE and SAP Functional people will not get anything out of this...

2.0 out of 5 stars Still trying to figure this out
The book would be good for someone who has started the programming of ABAP/4.

The book would be good for someone who has started the programming of ABAP/4. However if you are a new comer to this you will find it difficult and having to flip to this chart on page ?? then to this chart on page ?? makes it even more difficult. If you want to learn the basics this is not the book to buy. After I learn somemore in the programming stage of my training I might make a new review.But if your a beginner to SAP as I am stay away from this for now!!

By A Customer
This book is very good, but only for experience programmer who have access to SAP 3.0C (or later) and with six month of ABAP/4 experience (or better). This book will be a waste of time and money for everybody else. It is not a reference or concept type of book but HOW-TO w/ screen example. 90% of the NOVICE and SAP Functional people will not get anything out of this book. This is the type of book I needed 3 years ago when I first started programming with SAP ABAP/4. Get, read and understand the 'Developing SAP R/3 Applications' by Kretschmer before buying this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, in-depth... a real tip, July 15, 1998
By A Customer
This book doesn't try to make ABAP simpler than it is in reality. It treats the language in detail, and doesn't try to hide its many quirks. And despite the detail level, everything is put nicely into context.
If you want to become a very good technical ABAP programmer, this book is the only choice. But you probably need some programming experience before you can read it.
Way to go Mr. Matzke!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Reference Book, July 14, 1998
By A Customer
This is a handy book for quick referencing. It is clearly laid out with SAP keywords highlighted in bold. I would recommend this book for any experienced ABAP programmer who needs a 'comfort' book.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is for experienced ABAPers only, October 21, 2004
This review is from: ABAP/4: Programming the SAP R/3 System (Hardcover)
I was new to ABAP and went haywire reading this book.This book is someone who already knows ABAP/4 for atleast 6 months or so.Even people with programming background trying to learn ABAP won't get anything from the this book.Infact one gets overwhelmed.THIS IS NOT YOUR FIRST ABAP BOOK !!!!
The pros of the book are 1.it covers dialog programming 2.Sapscripts which most introductory books don't cover.
I would recommend getting SAMS ABAP/4 IN 21 DAYS for someone who wants to learn ABAP basics

3.0 out of 5 stars The SAP ABAP online documentation is at least as good, July 12, 1998
By A Customer
Better than most of the published books on ABAP, but still not "experience" oriented. This is a plain ABAP/4 book that gives no more than what you can get from the SAP ABAP/4 online documentation. If you expect a connection to any of the SAP module, you will be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good source for experienced ABAP programmers, January 27, 1998
This book should NOT be your first ABAP book. However, if you want to differentiate yourself by learning more advanced concepts this is the only ABAP programming book I have found to-date that I would call somewhat 'advanced'.

2.0 out of 5 stars This book is a poor learning tool., December 30, 1997
By A Customer
I purchased this book to prepare for our company's move to SAP R/3 and to learn more about the ABAP/4 language. The book was originally written in German and translates poorly into English. Some of the programming examples do not show the resulting output. One example contained German wording (for vendor and product). If someone had exposure to R/2 or other earlier versions of SAP, this book might be useful, but for persons with no exposure to SAP, this book is a poor learning tool even though the author is quite knowledgable about ABAP/4 and SAP R/3.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ABAP/4: Programming the SAP R/3 System (Hardcover)
The book is a good one for beginners.the topics covered are very comprehensive.For experienced people, the book could be used as a reference in many cases.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good, to the point, technically oriented, book !, March 1, 1999
By A Customer
One of the best books on ABAP/4 . This is not one of those simplistic books that have large typefaces and garish pictures. Has all the technical details that will interest an experienced IT professional.
