You have reached the right place. Here is a quick guide to kicktart your learning. The discussion here assumes no prior knowledge. Introduce yourself to the basics and the recommended online resources. Try to follow these steps in sequence to benefit the most:

What is SAP ERP?

Begin with "What is ERP?" and then, go ahead with in-depth discussion in the article on "What is SAP?" which covers the History of SAP, the essence of SAP ERP software, about the company, etc. SAP R/3 architecture covers the SAP's popular 3-tier architecture. Have Look-and-Feel of the SAP ERP system - SAP GUI interface.

SAP Server access

Get SAP Server Access to learn SAP ERP software. If you have access to an SAP ERP system, you can skip this step. For others, there are a few alternatives. If you know a SAP Basis guy, he or she may help you in installing SAP software on your machine as they have access to the copy of SAP IDES system provided with SAP installation at their companies. Apart from that, there are many vendors who provide online SAP ERP access (charged service) which you can search online. I have discussed about these options in my article SAP IDES and Developer version. Fortunately, we can get free access to an SAP system for starting your learning. Plz follow the instructions to get your free SAP Server Access.  If you have SAP ERP system installed on your local machine, most likely SAP GUI is installed as a part of it. SAP GUI is your interface with the SAP system and allows you to work on it. But if you have remote SAP server access, you need to setup SAP GUI yourself. So after gaining a remote SAP server access, you can download SAP GUI software and install it on your PC or Laptop. SAP GUI allows you to connect and logon to your SAP server. This is how you can configure your connection to the SAP ERP System.
