Preparing for ABAP Certification (C_TAW12_70) ????

Lets assume that you are going for the ABAP Certification via SAP ± Teched.If you are not aware of SAP Teched just have a look on its site. In short Sap Teched is an event which organised by SAP Every year Which includes Certification exams.(In India it is only in Bangalore).Check out the article How to apply in SAP Teched : Let¶s say you have 2 months of time and every day you can spend 1.5 hour for Study. (Note: This 1.5 hour does not include activities like : chatting with your Boyfriend / Girlfriend or Office work )

So you have around 90 hours to prepare for the certification. In these 90 hours you need to go through the below topics:

Way(s) to attain Competency Importance Topic NetWeaver Overview 60% Articulate, ABAP Workbench usage explain, describe, ABAP debugger program and outline usage solutions and ABAP types and data processes in« objects Internal table definition and use SQL statements incl. update strategies Primary Alternative Other TAW10 NW001 SAPTEC TAW10 BC400, BC401 TAW10 BC400, BC402 TAW10 BC400

These figures are given by SAP. For Certification I recommend you ABAP in 21 days + all TAW1012books. It will be good if you go through these books once and i guess 90 hours will be enough for this Note : Topic like Webdynpro for ABAP and Unicode will not be covered more effectively in these books so you need to prepare those topic on your own. Check out the below links to download TAW10-12 materials & ABAP in 21 days. Download all TAW Materials: Note : TAW 11 E is a elearning course, so you won¶t find any book. ABAP in 21 days After completing these books it will be good if you practice the Q&A. Even you can start looking at the sample question given by SAP : Check out Sample questions Don¶t become too much over confident as these questions are very simple and don¶t lose the hope as after finishing all books it will be child¶s play for you.

Also check out SAP ABAP online Quiz (it requires to create an account, Don¶t worry it is just 30 Seconds job!!!) Things need to be taken care during exam: The last year Exam format was: 


Contains 80 questions in 3 hours. All questions will be multiple choices and no partial marking is there(it means no mark will be given to you if you tick on 2 correct answers out of three correct one). For a question which has multiple answers, they will specify how many correct answers are there. No negative marking (I can see smile on your face!!!! )

Tips for the certifications: 


Try to read F1 help for all the basic syntax so that it will clear your basics. 3 hours is quite big time to write 80 questions So give 5 mins of time for reading the rules first. In exam they will not going to ask stupid questions like Which transaction code or function can be used to do XYZ tasks,etc, So don¶t waste your time in mugging up Tcode & function modules.

At last Best Of luck for your exam.

Reshma January 29, 2011

Hi, I m preparing for certification in ABAP There s a section in TAW12_1 where after the dialogue programming they ve a section before which there is a note saying this part is optional & is not a part of standard course .Can someone tell me what is it exactly? Is the part of LUWs & DB locks mentioned in that part not a part of the certification???? REPLY

Raj January 29, 2011

Hi Reshma, there is a note saying this part is optional & is not a part of standard course It means that it is not part of standard course TAW12 and all, SAP Provides the standard course based on the books.So dont confused by those words, Anyway Regarding the topics like LUW & DB locks. There will be very less question from these topics may be 2-3 rarely.But it will be good for learning and certification purpose that you finish it. Go through the below article to get an idea of certification question. Thanks, SAP Ignite Page 7 of 9
