Collection of SAP - Basis Questions

This is created from my notebook - the questions I have collected during my

preparation for SAP basis certifications. I have passed the certification with
flying colours and feel that practising mock tests using different questions greatly
help passing any exam. Especially you prepare a group and discuss.

I have prepared infact keyed in the questions along with the hints(in lot of cases)
and created this pdf. I also had created a small mock test software, which also
came in of great use. May be I will be sharing the same in future ....

Will be happy on your comments about it in my blog......

Dont forget to visit my blog at wordpress ( ) as I

am sharing my experiences there as a Basis and Database Admin.
