I am an MBA Finance graduate and I graduated in 2008. I had to take a 2 year break after that and since 2011, I am working as an accountant (this also involves working as an end-user in SAP). Now, I am interested to work as a SAP FICO consultant. But I am unable to find out how I can begin my career in this direction. The SAP courses provided by sap.com are terribly expensive. So I was wondering if I can learn on my own by going through books or online tutorials. My friend has access to a SAP system on which I can practice. I have already practiced a lot of T-codes by going through the same on the net. Now, I want to practice on some real projects which will give me an idea of how actual SAP professionals work on the same.
Is there any good book/online-resource which can give me a good tutorial on the same?
Thanks a lot in advance for your valuable advice. P B
