Topic Areas

Exam Page

Information about the topic areas covered is listed on the exam information page together with the corresponding SAP training cours, a single one in case of the C_SAC exam.

Note the small print: "SAP reserves the right to update the exam content (topics, items, weighting) at any time" make sure to check the exam page before applying.

Sample Questions

On the exam page, there is a link to a trial exam with sample questions which closely resembles the real exam experience. If it is obvious what the answer should be for all questions, you could be ready to take the exam. If you have no clue, you might want to study some more.

How to Prepare

Take the Learning Journey on SAP Learning

Time of writing, the learning content is freely available on the new SAP Learning portal, presented as learning journey with 8 units taking 20 hours to complete.

The units cover the same material as found in the course manual but in a format more suitable for self-study with short sections of text combined with videos and quizes.

Take a Training Course on SAP Training / SAP Learning Hub

For those with an SAP Learning Hub subscription, or with a budget to burn, you can also sign up for the e-learning course

This provides you with the oldskool format.

Included with the training is access to a test environment with exercises.

SAP Learning Hub Learning Journey

The learning journey shows a visualisation of the courses to take, including several openSAP courses (which in the authors view would be better classified under Learn More than Start with an Overview as they cover more advanced topics out of scope of the exam).

You can logon and mark your progress.

The tiles for each of the courses show the available formats: classroom and e-books.

When subscribed to the learning hub, you also have access to a training system for hands-on exercises (Live Access).

Additional Resources

SAP Help Portal

Although most material covered in the training courses is also documented "somewhere" in many of the product guides on the SAP Help Portal, trying to pass the exam on documentation study alone is not very realistic. However, doing some extra study by searching for some key terminology and relevant parts in the guides might be helpful.


SAP Community

Make sure to visit the topic area on the community for the latest blogs, questions, video tutorials on YouTube, and LinkedIn group.

SAP Press

There is no SAP Certification Success Guide for the C_SAC exam (yet) but there is one book dedicated to SAP Analytics Cloud which covers most topics.

Others attracted quite a few more.For your reading pleasure and convenience, here is a curated list of posts which somehow managed to pass the 10k-view mile stone and, as sign of current interest, still tickle the counters each month.
