How to Prepare

Take the Learning Journey on SAP Learning

Time of writing, the learning content is freely available on the new SAP Learning portal, presented as learning journey with 8 units taking 20 hours to complete.

The units cover the same material as found in the course manual but in a format more suitable for self-study with short sections of text combined with videos and quizes.

Take a Training Course on SAP Training / SAP Learning Hub

For those with an SAP Learning Hub subscription, or with a budget to burn, you can also sign up for the e-learning course

This provides you with the oldskool format.

Included with the training is access to a test environment with exercises.

SAP Learning Hub Learning Journey

The learning journey shows a visualisation of the courses to take, including several openSAP courses (which in the authors view would be better classified under Learn More than Start with an Overview as they cover more advanced topics out of scope of the exam).

You can logon and mark your progress.

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 a training system for hands-on exercises (Live Access).

Additional Resources

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.

 

SAP Community

Make sure to visit the topic area on the community for the latest blogs, questions, video tutorials on YouTube, and LinkedIn group.

SAP Press

There is no SAP Certification Success Guide for the C_SAC exam (yet) but there is one book dedicated to SAP Analytics Cloud which covers most topics.

      Thanks for the blog. A quick query...This certification ("SAP Certified Application Associate – SAP Analytics Cloud" C_SAC_2107) doesn't exist anymore?

      https://training.sap.com/certification/validity

       

      Thanks,

      Hi Jenifer,

      Last year, there were four updates for the exam. It is likely that there will be updates this year as well. You can search for "C_SAC" on the SAP Training shop for the latest edition.

      The C_SACP exam references the planning version.

      Hi Denys,

       

      May I know what is the right book to study to pass this C_SAC exam. I could not find any book for the certification. Please advise. Appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

      Cheers

      Hi Manu,

      Absolutely; you may know what the right book is to pass the exam but the reason you could not find it is because - time of writing - there is no such book!

      My advice is to read the post above. 😉

      TLDR?

      Here are some of the highlights

      • SAP certifications are 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).
      • There are a large number of tutorials available from a microsite dedicated to SAP Analytics Cloud.
      • There is no SAP Certification Success Guide for the C_SAC exam (yet) but there is one book dedicated to SAP Analytics Cloud which covers most topics.
      • 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.

      You are welcome!
