    Basically choosing a right module completely depends on your education and interests.

    If you are not good in programming don't opt for ABAP/Portal/CRM/.. module.

    If you prefer Network Admin job then go for SAP BASIS. Generally a SAP basis person might do the following tasks: create users/assign roles (within SAP), run backup, check db/os space utilization, add space if necessary, install SAP software, configure SAP parameters, monitor CPU/Memory/disk space/performance, configure connectivity between SAP components or SAP/nonSAP components, configure printing queues/printers, and/or sap software change management (aka Transports or Transport Management). For the most part these are all activities that would be familiar to a UNIX/Windows OS admin, a DBA, or a network admin. Most SAP Basis folks start their careers as OS sysadmins and/or DBAs. A smaller number start life as network administrators.

    In very small organization, the SAP Basis Admin performs all the functions (os admin, dba, network admin, and SAP admin). As you go up in company size, you see more specialization. Many companies have a separate dedicated admin for each function: OS admin, DBA, network admin, and SAP Basis admin. As you go further up the scale in size, you'll find those responsibilities spread even thinner: one or more OS admins, SAN admin, one or more DBAs, one or more SAP Basis admins, one or more dedicated SAP Security personell, etc.

    You should go for Basis if you have the following qualities:

    - you are graduated from Electric & Electronics Engineering (Who don't like to develop program )

    - you can build your own computer, and like to do installing own Windows

    - you likes to play games (PC, PS3,...)

    - you can read/write/understand/if possible speak English.

    No it's not very important to remember TCodes.

    Hi SAP Security is part of SAP BASIS so if you are going for SAP BASIS then you have to learn SAP Security, Learning to not very hard it just about to learn system Admin.
