I wanted to share my experience on how I cleared my SAP S/4 Hana Sales certification.
It all started one day when my colleagues where talking of the importance of doing certification in S/4 Hana. It was nudging on one corner of my mind on the need of doing a certification. Though being an SD consultant for more than 12 years (with some MM exposure) I haven’t done my certification on SD.
All these pushed me towards taking a certification, but how do I start, that is where I came across SAP certification HUB. This gives you a flexibility of taking the certification exam on cloud and the good part, from your home.
When it was told certification on cloud, most of us would think that it could be SAP cloud certification (not on -premise), if not many, at least I was relating like that.Understood that we can take both On premise and Cloud certification in cloud (certification hub), where we can clear 6 different certification if cleared on first attempt.
The most important part is preparing for the exam, this would be easy if we have SAP learning hub access. Each certification has a “Study Guide”. This study guide gives us the reference of the leaning material and its reference number. If we have learning hub access we can easily search for the relevant material very easily and we have to just go thru those.
Getting learning hub access is little costly, I got the help from my company and they gave me access.
The learning hub also has model assessment, which is at basic level, the final exam questions will totally differ form this, clearing this model assessment would give us some confidence.
While going thru the learning material, please prepare notes, at least the heading and summary of what was covered, which would be of immense help while you revise.
Start preparing for the exam after you had fixed a date in the learning hub, the learning hub access will be for a year and as said above, one can clear 6 exams (on first attempt), so it would be wise to clear the exam at the earliest. Fixing an exam date would help us to focus on our target, else we would keep postponing the exam date thinking that we have a year.
Finally, I would have to say that for experienced guys this would be a cake walk as we already know about the standard SD existing functionality, S/4 HANA part is what that needs to be concentrated more, which would be almost 40% of the questions, which also includes FIORI (refer to the study guide).
On the exam day be calm and focused, you can nail it!
