More than 15,000 students have joined my Part 1 course, and more than 9,000 students have joined my Part 2 course. More than 2,500 reviews between the two courses!

  This course goes through the process of studying for the TOGAF 9 Part 1, Part 2 and Combined exams. I go through what you need to do to prepare for the exam in the weeks leading up to the test, and how to approach the exam itself on the day of the test.

  I also link to the best resources I have found online for studying for this test. I link to free resources, cheap and inexpensive ones, and even blog posts I have found. 

  By the end of this short course, you will know how to approach studying for the exam. I want to be clear that this course does not cover the TOGAF 9 specification itself. This class alone is not sufficient for taking the TOGAF exams. But I do lay out a schedule for you to study over 4-5 weeks that you can follow. 

  I am TOGAF 9 Certified, having passed both the Part 1 and Part 2 exams. And I am also a member of the Open Group’s Architecture Forum. I hold a commercial license to teach the TOGAF 9 Specification. 

  TOGAF is a registered trademark of The Open Group in the United States and other countries. SoftwareArchitect(dot)ca is a member of The Open Group Architecture Forum and holds a current, valid TOGAF® Commercial License. 

Thank you for signing up for this course on Udemy. The course will always be up-to-date here and nowhere else. I am also available for questions inside the course discussion board.

A brief hello, and what this course is about.

Study Strategy

Separately or Together?

First decision, should you take the combined exam or take them separately on different days? How far apart should you take them if you choose separately?
