Yes, it is still possible to get started in SAP. To make it easier I have developed a new DVD available on August 20th at www.sapcookbook.com
My goal for this course was to help the hundreds of people who write me email asking how to break into SAP. Here is the response from one of the first Breaking Into SAP students:
"Jim, You asked me if I was satisfied with the value of the course, the answer is 'most definately.' The amount of information is good and you have found a good track with the visual flash guides and SAP simulations. They are really informative and play a bigger part in the course than I thought... Andrew"
This student is responding to the many simulations that I provide with the course DVD, which walk you through most important aspects of learning SAP, and learning to take advantage of the best job opportunities in the marketplace.
It's important to note that this course is different from every other course you will find. Elsewhere you may find a EUR$1500 set of CDs that will show you the FICO configuration, or the MM configuration. I don't believe this will help you land a job in SAP. Understanding what employers are looking for, and understanding the underlying forces driving hiring decisions, understanding how to use recruiters to your advantage, and yes, understanding the underlying tehcnical components of SAP are most important.
This course will give you the skills and introduce you to the resources that you will need to acquire experience in every module that SAP has today, and in every module that they will ever deploy. In short, this course helps you LEARN the right way to LEARN SAP.
Perhaps more importantly, it teaches you what to do with the knowledge that you gain by the study of SAP, and it shows you what to do after you have landed your first job in SAP.
