New to SAP

I am totally new to the world of SAP. I have 4 years of experience in IT and mostly in web development. I have recently done my MBA and would like to venture into the world of SAP, but I have no clue as to which module or certification to choose. Will you be able to help me find the right way?

    welcome to SAP world,


    check the sticky threads in career center forum and blogs on career center.

    if you are interested in web development then choose EP or ABAP development as your option, otherwise with MBA in HR or FI you can go for functional modules based upon your interest.

    • don't cross post the same question on multiple forums.

    Thank you for your reply.


    What is the best way to learn and prepare towards SAP certification (for example for FI or CO module)?


    Is training mandatory for the any of the SAP certification, I mean can it be done with the help of eLearning alone?


    Which is the good institution for eLearning?


    Also where do I register for the test?


    Thank you.

    Hi Manju,


    What type of background and experience do you have with your current degrees?  It looks like you have pretty good history that can really allow you to explore SAP.  There are two certification levels:


    1.  associate - mainly beginners and the basic step in covering the fundamental knowledge requirements needed for consulting

    2.  personal - more on the experienced and professional level,


    Certifications also focus on 3 areas: application, technology and development.  Depending on what you would like to focus on, you can further gain more knowledge in those areas that you choose which way to get you certificate.  


    There are exams to take in order to prepare for these certifications, http://www.onlinecomputersciencedegree.com/ is also a resource to get additional educational experience in web development.


    Good luck.
