Many of these certification areas relate to specific functional areas of the SAP system (Financial Consolidation, Business Planning, etc).

I would probably start my thought process as follows:
1. What type of job are you seeking (role with a consultancy, role with a specific company that uses SAP in-house)?
2. Once you have made a target list of employers, I would look at what SAP modules they use and what versions of SAP they are on.

From there, I would start with some of the general topic areas and then follow those with specifics that are relevant to your target jobs.

This may help you limit the list down, as it does not make sense to seek certifications in modules that are not used by your target employers.

It seems like you want to do enough training to get in the door with a new role, and then you will learn the specifics of that job. Therefore, I would only pursue detailed certifications in areas that are directly relevant to a job you are going after.
