    Hi,

    1) from where can i get the training material, if anyone has it please mail it to me at rameshv15@yahoo.co.in.

    You just need to read the Tabs that SAP has provided.All the tabs would occupy around 400 MB. impossible to upload them.

    2)has anyone undergone any training related to BW, then from where?. I enquired with genovate(mumbai) and they told me that they dont conduct trainings related to SAP BW and they asked me to contact SAP india, though from many of my friends i have heard that genovate conducts SAP related trainings.

    Normally SAP Labs and Siemens conducts SAP trainings and offer certification exams. There are other small institutes who offer traniinnig You need to contact locally on this.

    3) have i to first get certified on BW 3.0 and then i can get certified on 3.5?

    No. You can directly take cert exam in 3.5

    5) how much would be the cost for the certification ? (in india)

    around 28K
