Also , most interviews generally dont hand out with respect to just technical details , they will also grill on whether u worked on xi or not : this they might ask what idocs u have worked on not all but most famous, similarly dealing with any simple issues of configuration and conceptual views as if interviews are technical they can only test scenarios , error debugging , error codes etc hence please concentrate on them as well. since u r abap earlier you should find it ok
