How to Prepare
SAP Training and SAP Learning Hub
The C_FIOAD certification is entirely based on SAP training courses and although not formally listed as a requirement, it will be challenging to pass the exam without taking any classes (be it in classroom or e-learning format).
The topic areas are covered in the following courses.
Roughly, you can expect 11 questions each from the ADM questions, about 28 from UX100 and 33 from UX200 (counting 11 questions for > 12% and 7 for 8-12%), most questions come from the shortest 3-day course, in other words.
Note that the topic areas do not include SAP HANA.
If classroom training brings you bad memories, consider a SAP Learning Hub subscription. There is a trial edition available for you to try it out.
Included with the training is access to a test environment with exercises.
The learning journey shows a visualisation of the courses to take. You can logon and mark your progress.
Note that there is a lot of overlap between SAPX01, recommended as prerequisites for some courses, and UX100; no need to take both.
The tiles for each of the courses show the available formats: classroom and e-books. When subscribed to the learning hub, you also have access to an SAP HANA system for hands-on exercises (Live Access). The assessment contains the sample questions from the course.
There is no SAP Certification Success Guide for the C_FIOAD exam (yet) but there are several titles about SAP Fiori.
For more detailed coverage, beyond the scope of the exam, see
There are also some older books about SAP NetWeaver administration still in print and available covering earlier software releasesf.
Related but for a different persona and exam, is the certification success guide covering C_FIORDEV_21
SAP Help Portal
Although most material covered in the training courses is also documented “somewhere” in many of the product guides on the SAP Help Portal, trying to pass the exam on documentation study alone is not very realistic. However, doing some extra study by searching for some key terminology and relevant parts in the guides might be helpful.
For Fiori topics, search inside (This product) the documentation for SAP S/4HANA.
SAP Notes and Knowledge Base
In the training manuals and documentation many references are made to SAP Notes and knowledge base articles (KBAs). Although the articles are not part of the study material, reading the notes is always a good idea to strengthen your understanding.
You need a S-user account to access the launchpad.
Most notes and articles start with component CA (Cross Application)
Make sure to visit the topic area on the community for the latest blogs and Q&A’s. An extensive list of references points to documentation and trainings, including free openSAP courses.
SAP Community Wiki
This wiki is for the ones who are starting with SAP Fiori in a new SAP S/4HANA system or want to gain more knowledge about operating or developing Fiori in an existing SAP S/4HANA system.
On the exam page, there is a link to a trial exam with 10 sample questions which closely resembles the real exam experience.
If it is obvious what the answer should be for all questions, you are ready to take the exam. If you have no clue, you might want to study some more.

Over the years, for the SAP HANA Academy, SAP’s Partner Innovation Lab, and à titre personnel, I have written a little over 300 posts here for the SAP Community. Some articles only reached a few readers. Others attracted quite a few more.
For your reading pleasure and convenience, here is a curated list of posts which somehow managed to pass the 10k-view mile stone and, as sign of current interest, still tickle the counters each month.
