It was my first time taking the exam, I work as a Consultant, it's my first job, I've been working for 4 years, two years ago I took SuiteFoundation and SuiteDeveloper. If I recall the past papers before they changed the exam (And I think they changed the exam a while ago in the last 2 years maybe?) It feels easier. I never took the actual exam 2 years ago, but the sample test was horrible, filled with many Pick Any Applicable , and What is the best practice? kind of questions. I didn't see any today, some pick 3 from 5s, pick 2 from 5s, radio (1 from many) But the questions were broad, and didn't really dive down a specific tree. It feels like the exam is randomized but the question pool is broken up into many categories. Kinda like the Suitedeveloper exams which are split so you kinda know how many will come from what category

I have done SuiteFoundation and SuiteCloud Dev. I haven't done any implementation yet so not sure if ERP Consultant is the right path for me.
I am targeting Admin cert..

I think that depends on your daily role, and also what you like.
I've done the full product cycle before, waterfall, from gathering requirements, signed documentation, functional specs, developing, UAT, bug fixing and deploy. Everything done alone
I think in my company, admin is for people that want to be in house, and I'm a consultant so it's different
In APAC, Consultants are worth more, but sure I can dev, and that's good, sometimes that really helps the timeline

how many implementation have you done?
I have done these as well: gathering requirements, signed documentation, writing specs, developing, UAT, bug fixing and deploy.

Isn't ERP Consultant exam for implementation consultant/Functional consultant?

NetSuite related ones that aren't just calling me in for dev about 12 or so? NetSuite stuff including those is about 16 or so. I also do other projects. Yup, I'd say it's mainly for functional or implementation.

But I think if you work for a company that has LCS (Learning pass, ie at least a partner, or paid for) it helps this exam.
If you understand the way that NetSuite works, it helps too, like the design philosophy, like if out of a few options, you know how NetSuite will design it. It sounds a bit hocus pocus, but it isn't actually

I don't work for a company..
but I got the idea that it isn't really for me unless I do 3-4 implementation at least.
so, what's next for you? Celigo 😄

I see... I've worked with teams in manilla before that don't work for companies, for just dev purpose work. I think you need to know if you want or like to know what's going on behind the scenes of what you're building. And I can give a few examples. Like, I worked on a project for MiFID 1's implementation in Europe that affectively meant that client needed to have specific requirements and also that they need to recognize revenue (generate journals) in a specific way Or the fact that we need to modify the system because of how India's CGST SGST IGST work, how Japan's Fixed Assets work in different years in declining balance, or how in Taiwan, you cant have your own running number and you need to request invoice numbers so you can issue them each month. I don't know what's next for me. But for the company I work for, the next step is probably AWS, we would still consider using Celigo, but we can get data out via Workato as a similar integration iPaas , or with UI Path to deal with legacy systems that can only use UI. I don't particularly like sales and pre-sales, but i'm trying it out.

How strong are you with accounting? I never attempted this exam because I heard nightmares about that. In my real-world, we have CPAs that answer all those questions.
