success rate for ABAP certification

Former Member

Hello Everybody,

I'm upbeat on taking the ABAP certification from Siemens. But I'm quite apprehensive about the course because of my background. I've no programming experience so far . I completed my MS in VLSI from Canada a month before and I'm studying ABAP from a local instititute.

Could you anyone pls suggest me that how much is the success rate for a person who is totally new to programming. Also can I go ahead with the certification.

all your comments are invaluable..

thanks,

karthikeyan

karthikeyan,

I have a different view on the topic, and would like to share it with you.

I don't think that going for ABAP at this point is the best move to do (Specially if you live in Canada). The main reason for that is that ABAP tasks are being constantly outsourced to Asia (and as you can see from the forums - there are plenty of ABAP gurus out there). If you want to be a programmer, then i would opt for a Java certification. If you want do something related to SAP and you are starting from scratch i would recommend on Portal and XI (exchange Infrastructure), both are more in demand that ABAP, and are "hotter" in the market.

My two cents,

Gili

Hi,

With regards to ABAP some amount of programming is required. You dont need to be a genius in programming but you need to know the basic statements used in programming like "for , if elseif endif " etc. When you go into any new course nobody assumes you know that language. But atleast you are able to have a logical mind to write a basic code.

Success rate of ABAP=> anybody who takes studies any course material , and practices questions seriously enough can clear it. Any exam for that matter is solely based on the hard work put.
