SAP FI certification

Dream Nerd
Currently Being Moderated

Folks,

 

I have been working in SAP for last five years but in technical domain. For fortunately enough i have spent most of the time in FI/CO module . Since working constantly in this module i have gain considerable amount of knowledge in this area. Now I would like to give certification specifically in FI and I am walking in the dark. Can someone give me answer for this question related to FI certification that would be great.

 

1. What courses I need to study for FI Certification? I do have most of the material since my colleagues have attended lots of SAP courses but no one appeared for certification. 

2. SAP emphasis on which area the most.

3. How many questions asked and how long the exam would be.

4. How difficult it would be for a technical person to complete this exam successfully?

     

Your answers will be greatly appreciated

 

Regards,

Nirad Pachchigar

    Hello,

     

    You can post certification related questions in SAP Certified Professionals Forum.

     

    1. You need to read TFIN50 and TFIN52.

    Please see the syllabus at www.sap.com/education

    2. The emphasis is already given in the syllabus. Where there is +++ areas you need to concentrate more.

    3. 80 questions 3 hours 70% pass mark. No negative marking. Hence answer guess all questions

    4. It is not at all difficult exam, if you stick to your basics.

     

    Regards,

    Dear Sap Experts

     

    I also have similar question like earlier question.

     

    How exactly a person can get certified if a person is having SAP domain experience of 5 years without attending course and spending the fee which costs 3.00 lacs rupees.

     

    Regards,

    The new certification system has 55% passing marks.

    There is no partial marking. Means any question you answer, it has to be correctly marked to the point. If it has 2 correct options, you have to mark exactly those 2 to get marks.

    Questions are 80. 3 hours duration.

    No Negative Marking.

    35% questions are from TFIN50_1. 30% are from TFIN50_2. 20% are from TFIN52_1. 10% are from TFIN52_2.

    These four books are like bible for the certification.

    You DO NOT have to learn the T-Codes for the exam.

    There are 4-5 questions from Solution Manager and other online training courses too. These are small and can be read and completed just withn one day.

     

    @ Others... You cannot do your certification ONLY. You have to tak the training too. Atleast this is the truth about Siemens and Genovate.

    Also, if money is a constraint, you should do an online training course and you can easily finish it in 20-22 days, though they give you 5 months to do it.

     

    My advise is that the training opens the eyes about various issues and trends, even if you are experienced. Go for it.

     

    All the best everyone!!

      If you cant spend that much money and you have more than 2 years of experience in the module you want to give exam, you can always go for DIRECT Certification,for which they will check your experience alone and you dont need to attend training in any SAP Authorised Training Centers. But,your employer should be OK with this as you will need to some proof to SAP Labs about your employment with the current employer.

       

      The whole process has been discussed many times in the various threads in this forum. Please check those.

       

      Vishwa.

    Hi Ravi,

     

    This is Abi.

    I did the classroom session for SAP FI training and gave the exam back in 2008. I got 67.some%.

    Since I did not clear the exam as passing bar was at 70% I couldn't get jobs into SAP. Since I had to

    support the family after such an expense incurred, I took up different jobs till date. I changed from Customer Service to I.T support to event management to Recruitment and currently I am working in the H.R field.

    Odd jobs, different domains, it was all jumbled. I am back in my independent financial stability and I always wanted to get into the finance and accounting field so I want that now. But since pay scales were too damn low, I preferred other domains back then, which paid me better on my interpersonal and communication skills.

    I still havn't recieved my attempt certificate from the place where I did my certification from (Genovate Mumbai) and don't know if it matters after all these years.

    I want to get back in the field which interests me. I've always been an B+ grade scoring student in financial papers in college. Other papers I did decent too.

    The point is, I need some guidence from someone who knows the industry. I haven't had any proper guidance so I went where ever I saw good money.

     

    I am 29 now and If you could guide me from the information above for my next POA, i'd be more than delighted this Diwali.

    Do let me know. I am eagerly awaiting for a breakthrough.

    Hi Ravi,

     

    i am giving my fico certification next week- i have been reading books Tfin50- 1 and 2, Tfin52- 1 and 2 (2006 edition)

     

    but i recently came to know that there is a new edition (2009) released and we have to read that and also solution manager book sm001?.

     

    i dont have much time to refer to the latest version now as i am running short of time.

     

    kindly advise if there is a problem to give certification with old books?
