These are the sections that would be tested in the certification exam.

1) Data Modeling --> 8 questions (BW 330 covers these questions)

2) Netweaver - Technical scenarios --> 8 questions (the PPT that i sent would cover this)

3) Authorization --> 4 questions (BW365)

4) Warehouse Management --> 20 questions (BW310)

5) Extraction --> 12 questions (BW340, 350)

6) Reporting --> 20 questions (BW305, 315)

7) BPS --> 8 questions (BW370 or TBW45)

I started my preparation exactly 4 weeks before the exam. I practiced for about 10 days on the system.

I studied 8-10 hours per day and finished my first study just 9 days before the exam.

Then it took for about 7 days for the first revision and I made a second revision in 2 days.

Here is the order of the books that i suggest you to study (if you are planning to take the exam):

1) BW310 (Don't study Archiving i.e, 11th chapter)

2) BW340 (Don't study ETL with Datastage and Open Hub service -- not required for certification exam)

3) BW330 (All chapters are required)

4) BW350 (FI-SL and CRM not required for the certification exam)

5) BW305 (All chapters are required.. don't neglect CSS part, MIME repository... though they are quite boring..I studied them...and i got 2 to 3 questions from them)

6) BW315 (All chapters are required)

7) BW365 (All chapters are required)

😎 BW370 (15 chapters would be enough..concentrate more on first 11 chapters..I got 8 questions from the first 11 chapters and 13th chapter .. web interface builder)

I suggest you not to buy any certification exam's waste of money. I bought 2 books...and i never opened them as someone suggested in the forums that the questions would come from the SAP offficial training material..I concentrated revising them 2 times rather than taking any practice tests...and in fact, I did not take any practice test also..
