How to Learn SAP FICO ? Is Expensive SAP FICO Training worth it ?

Dear Himanshu,

I am doing my CA final with 6 years of work experience and currently working in a manufacturing company as Accounts Officer. I have long aspired to learn SAP FICO, but till date I haven’t. I enquired Siemens and other Partners of SAP long back. They are charging near 4 lacs for 25 days training for SAP FICO. I am not sure whether in 25 days training I will get complete grip over the module.

How to learn SAP Fico?

Whether through self study, if yes, how?
through Coaching centres means which one I can prefer?

Please guide me, since this area is completely vague to me and my friends.
