Tips for taking S/4HANA Certified Technology Associate Exam through SAP Certification Hub
Exam C_S4IMP_1511 – SAP Certified Technology Associate – SAP S/4HANA 1511 is my 20th SAP certification (41st overall certification exam passed) and was a different experience from all previous ones taken through certification centres. I could plan and take exam at short notice on same day.
STEP1 – PURCHASE SUBSCRIPTION: First check Available certification exams in the cloud. Here is excellent step by step blog – Take y.our SAP Certification Exams in the Cloud I had to Subscribe to Certification Hub, add to basket item “CER006 – SAP Certification in the Cloud” for USD550 and checkout then wait for email (took 2hrs).
STEP2 – PREPARATION: Refer above blog, login to Certification Hub, Click on Video for Preparing for an Online Proctored Exam (SAP),
Click on Link for Questionmark Secure browser and download to install it. Click on button Conduct System Test to do system test so any issues can be resolved. I was prompted to exit snagit and also close taskbar.
STEP 3 – SCHEDULE EXAM: https://training.sap.com/shop/certification/
Log on (I number with I replaced by 0) on TopRight and select My Training. Click on Go to SAP Certification Hub. You can click on Exam Dashboard to select and schedule the exam.
STEP 4: TAKE EXAM: https://training.sap.com/shop/certification/
Log on (I number with I replaced by 0) on TopRight and select My Training. Click on Go to SAP Certification Hub. Click on Exam Appointments, select and take exam.. I logged in 10 mins before scheduled time, was prompted to select from list of old S-000 number I used before. Proctor wasn’t available until another half hour. After exam starts the proctor watches you very closely and I heard some beeps as proctor changes. Once I finished I clicked submit button so it displayed my score but unlike any of the previous exams, transcript vanishes after you disconnect. After 2 days I received email to download pdf file and have opened ticket for transcript.

TIPS: Here are the tips for you to prepare well for the exam:
Prepare all topics well, if you just know New Implementation or System Conversion its not good enough, you must know all 3 scenarios.
Prepare each transition scenario well in detail if for e.g. which scenario to use Data Services which scenario to use Landscape Transformation Server.
Get to know detail on each of the phases of Implementation and what are the tasks at each stage.
Knowledge of each option of Guided Configuration task would be an advantage.
Implementation of Central Finance should be explored in detail for planning as well as execution.
Knowing details about each accelerator is important like “Information Stewart”.
For conversion process you have to know DMO/SUM as well as classical migration.
Knowledge of Lifecycle Management is important.
