Our new SAP GURU has sent a message to our current SAP FICO students and to future prospective SAP FICO students:
In my experience, understand accounting and bookkeeping is mandatory to be a functional consultant in FI/CO. One does not need to be a CPA or even need a formal finance degree but a sound understanding of how accounting and double entry bookkeeping works is critical.
Attached are some of the web links that anyone not from a sound finance background should review prior to any FI/CO class.
Of course, there are many other resources on the web that anyone can search…bottom line is that these concepts have to be understood well to have a sound foundation.
