How to Prepare for SAP Certification

Dear SAP Friends,

In this blog, I wanted to share the preparation steps for SAP certification – My experience after passing 12 certifications

Nowadays SAP Certification has become a Trump card to get selected for a job as a fresher or for an experienced professional. (Importance of SAP Certification: - SAP Certification | SAP Blogs)

But please be remembered doing a certification won’t give you the assurance getting a job Certification may help to shortlist your profile. 

In the beginning, I was very much worried or got scared to prepare for certification, but then I figured out a simple way to prepare.

For example, I will take Manufacturing Certification. So, for any certification which you wanted to do go to SAP Training Shop and look out for the respective one, once you open you can see topics, and books to refer to and the percentage of questions that will come.

  • Practice all exercises which have mentioned at the end of each chapter mainly in Fiori.
  • Try to understand the configuration and the value entered in each screen.
