TERP10 Study Guide

Some important points about the TERP10 certification test:

• It has multiple choice and free response (fill in the blank type) questions. There will be
around 80 questions and the vast majority will be multiple choice type questions.
• Questions are based on the course material only -- nothing else.
• A very good understanding of SAP from a practical viewpoint is essential. However, the
test also requires you to memorize details and you will need to study specially for the test
and make every effort to remember these details.
• It is ironical, but true that even if you have a pretty solid understanding of SAP and can
carry out most transactions, you can still easily fail the test unless you prepare diligently
for the test by paying attention to very specific details.
• During the test, you will answer each question on-line and will have the opportunity to
mark questions for which you are unsure about the answer

The four days allocated to the training session are inadequate to cover the material from start to
finish. I am quite confident that you will already have covered the basics during your courses
with Dr. Lian Qi, and during the extensive review sessions. Thus, the training course between
June 8 and 11 will completely focus on preparing for the test. I will assume that your
understanding of the basic modules (SD, MM, PP, FI and CO) is already pretty solid (at the level
covered in Fitter Snacker) and will focus on what is needed to get you ready for the test.

In this document, I lay out a list of things that you should memorize in each unit. For our
training session to be successful, you should cover all of these items even before we start the
training sessions. You should find the answers to each of the following questions and also
memorize these answers. The questions on the examination will not be in the form given below,
however, studying in this form will prepare you to handle the questions in the examination

In what follows, the number in the parentheses after each question indicates the page number
from which the question is taken.
