Brief About the Exam
First Step is to go through SAP Training , few things to note Exam has 80 questions , you have 180 mins and you need to score at least 65%. Also note says “SAP recommends combining education courses and hands-on experience to prepare for your certification exam as questions will test your ability to apply the knowledge you have gained in training”
Your Project management skill will start at this first step as you need to take the task of SAP Activate Certification as a Project. My goal was to get at least 52 correct answers out of 80. Keep last 30 mins for review. In 150 mins i need to answer 80 questions which is roughly 1.8 mins for each question.
Plan for SAP Activate Exam
Second step is to prepare your own project plan broken down into tasks (or i can say your own product backlog) which you feel comfortable, As you will have of lot of other tasks to handle in your life, it does help to put a plan and do review it as often as you can. it will help you to keep on track (may be you can use burndown chart) and also you can book your exam date. If you spare 1-2 hrs a day , you can expect your certification project to complete in 1.5 months.
