How Did He Prepared:
(In his words) "I had work experience of around 3 years already in the module which was quite helpful for me in the exam. Also I had prepared for two months with the standard TBW books - TBW10,20,41,45,42_1 & 42_2. I majorly worked on my weaker sections like Reporting & Integrated Planning (for around 8 hours daily for 3 weeks). Before my certification exam, I have practice with SAP BI online exam on this website. That has given me booster to crack my BI certification. Online practice exam gave similar feeling of actual certification exam and I was introduced with scenario based questions. Be focused on your target; that's all."
