Your Thoughts are on right note.

Options availble to You for learnin ERP Packages are

1) SAP

2) Oracle

3) Microsoft Dynamics Ax 2009.

Even Microsoft Axapta Functional are much in Demand.   Institute is  also offering Courses on SAP and Micro

soft dynamics Axapta. Microsoft Axapta course is cheaper when compared to SAP . For further details you can

refer Institute site.So you can opt Microsoft Course.

But my sincere suggestion is to Concentrate on Completion of C.A final exams also.

Wishing you all the best for your C.A exams as well as for the ERP Course.

Withe best wishes.

As regards Preparation for Second IInd group, I suggest the following Approach :

Costing :-

1) Attain perfection in Operations Research

2) Attain Perfection On Costing theory

3) Attain Perfection on Latest developments of Costing i.e Budgeting, Activity based Costing, Life cycle Costing, Target Costing, Value Chain Analysis, Performance measurement, Theory Of Constraints, Relevant Costing

4) Try to solove 1 to 2 problems in each model in Chapters of Marginal And Standard Costing

5) Try to solve Past examination question papers preferably starting from latest in examination conditions


1) Follow Institute material

2) Prepare Mindmaps , Side Headings, Imp content for each topic

3) Revise.. Revise.. Revise..

4) Answer Point wise in Exam

Direct Taxes :

1) Follow Any Standard Book

2)  Tabulate the section Index and List out the Imp provisions, Case laws

3) Study Latest Amendments, Latest Caselaws

4) Revise.. Revise...

5) Go through the question properly, Answer Logically supporting with Case law and applicable Provisions

Indirect Taxes :-

1) Follow any Standard Book along with Institute Material

2) Attain Perfection in Imp Chapters Like Valuation in Excise and Customs etc;

3) Answer Point wise

4) Revise.. Revise.. Revise..

As regards preparation after Marriage, Have strong determination in you to clear. that will help.

Or you Can go for Library for 2 hours in the Morning.

Learning  either of SAP, ORACLE , Microsoft AX  ERPs are good.

There are many training institutes for each ERP in various cities. It depends on the city. Institute is offering Courses on SAP as wellas Microsoft NAV.

With Best wishes for all those preparing  for exams and who wants to pursue Career in ERP

Success is always sweet, don't loose confidence.  Everyone knows but i am including here ' Money will play with the persons in many ways'

Please don't give respect to money. Give respect to your Education. Once you are into earning and after tasting money you will do calculations for 'Oppurtunity Cost'.

Don't forget to get a professional qualification before entering into the ERP Field.

The respect is different always.

As per my view building carrier with ERP will be a good step.

S A P is good but you have to learn FI or CO module .

All the best, hope you are concentrating on CA .

Sana, ERP implementation is one of the emerging area's for Finance Professional. I have worked on both the Modules and i would suggest you to go for Oracle 11i.. Reason : the cost of SAP implementation is 3times more than implementing Oracle, so most of indian corporates are going for Oracle 11i/12r.


Skills u may require appart frm ERP course, would be excellent comm. skills & co-ordination.
