SAP BI QuestionsHere you will find sample SAP BI questions and mock tests for SAP BI certification that are relatively similar to the original exam. You should definitely use them during preparation for the certification, because it will help you to familiarize yourself with the exam format, test your knowledge, identify areas that require additional attention, and sometimes these sample questions are just a little bit similar to what you might encounter at the real exam.

SAP BI Certification Questions

Before you read these sample questions, it is necessary to make one thing crystal clear: there is absolutely no way to get SAP BI questions that will appear at the actual certification. There are several reasons why it is not possible. First, no one has access to the bank of the certification questions because they are kept in the utmost secrecy. Second, the pool of questions that SAP has is so large that, even if someone could extract some questions from the secret database, the probability of getting these SAP BI questions at the exam is extremely low because the questions are randomly selected by a computer. Therefore, do not believe the people who try to sell you SAP BI questions and promise that after studying them you will definitely pass SAP BI certification.

During SAP BI certification you will be required to answer 80 multiple choice questions. There is no negative marking for incorrect answers. It means that you should try to answer as many questions as possible even if you are not sure what is the correct answer. You will be given 180 minutes to complete the certification. The current passing score for SAP BI certification is around 60%.
