SAP FI Certification Questions

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 FI questions at the exam is extremely low because the questions are randomly selected by a computer.

  2. Hi Anirban,

    That is very good to know as I am planning to take the FI certification exam. How many hours did you have to put in for preparing for the exam say, per week and how long should one be ideally preparing for the certification exam in order to be successful. Many thanks for your helpful input.

    Anand

    1. Hi Anand,

      I used to spend around 4 hours per day preparing for SAP FI certification (I could not put more hours because of my job). I think that one month is a good time to prepare. You can do it faster but then the pressure is high. Best luck with certification, it is not so difficult when you are prepared!

      Anirban

      1. Hi Anir,

        Thanks for the quick response and may also ask you what study materials you did you rely to prepare for the exam besides ERP certifications premium Q&A. I am planning to read TFIN 50_1 and TFIN 50_2. Do you think that will be sufficient? Thanks a lot.

        Anand

        1. Hi Anand,

          Sorry for the late response, a notification about your comment went to my spam folder. Yes, these are the main books to read. On SAP FI certification also there are some questions about Solution Manager, so it good to read SM001 book as well. I hope my response is not too late 🙂

          Anirban

          1. Hi Anir,

            Your response is not at all late, as I have a long way to go to take the exam with two hours day to study with full-time job and commuting. I will also read the sm001 as well. But what about TFIN_52? The SAP says that would be covered as well? Thanks.

            Anand

          2. Hi,

            I meant TFIN50 and TFIN52 books. I did not notice you wrote TFIN 50_1 and TFIN 50_2. What are these? I’ve never heard about them…

            Anirban

          3. Dear Abhiram

      Anand

      1. Hi Anand,

        FOr the first time to complete all the books is time consuming but from 2nd time onwards it will not take time.

        You never know from which corner of the book you will get the questions.

        If you are experienced then may be you will not take time.Because many things are known to you in advance.

        Im SAP experienced and have read all the books 5 times in 20 days and cleared certification exam with 96%.

        So concentrate on study material and try to read as many times.DOnt break the continuity in between otherwise you will start forgetting the things.

        Thanks
