    Default Passed TOGAF® 9 Combined Part 1 and Part 2

    All,

    I just passed TOGAF® 9 Combined Part 1 and Part 2 exam today. Part 1: 92% and Part 2: 95%.

    I used the Official 3rd Edition of TOGAF® 9 Foundation and TOGAF® 9 Certified Study Guide. Total 3.5 weeks study time.

    Now I am waiting for the official email from The Open Group.

    TOGAF® exam information: TOGAF® Examinations | Certification and Accreditation

    Thanks
    SB

    Everything in Part 1 is covered from Foundation study guide and The Open Group practice test is helpful. philz1982's
    notes from the below post is very useful.
    Let's get TOGAF Certified in 2015 Thread!

    Part 2 is tough as there is no straight answer for scenario question. You have to assess the scenario and think in TOGAF methodology to choose the best answer. Though there is an advantage:
    This exam comprises 8 complex scenario questions, with gradient scoring. This exam is open book and covers the complete Level 2 learning outcomes. The correct answer scores 5 points, the second best answer 3 points, the third best answer 1 point. The distracter scores zero points. The pass mark is 60% (24 or more points out of a maximum of 40).
    So, if one can guess and able to choose second best answer, still able to get 24 to pass it.

    Congrats, truly an enterprise level certification.......

    You can't get hired on as an architect at my company without a certification and strong understanding of SOA or TOGAF. It most certainly is a big boy certification.

    Congrats on the pass!!! I'm working on the PMP right now, but TOGAF is next on my list. As DatabaseHead said, it's a big boy cert and I see it asked for in a lot of high level jobs.

    congrats. I wrote a few papers on TOGAF framework for my IT mgmt minor. I used the foundation for help.

    To be honest it was super boring! but when you realize why these things and other enterprise architectures are the way they are, everything makes sense.

    Just a side note, it's not uncommon for architects to only possess these types of certifications. Not sure why that is, but it is........

    Maybe they are omitting their old certifications?

    Had my friend look at architect positions on his companies internal site and sure enough, more SOA and TOGAF requirements. Don't see a lot of these on the outside, but in the inside they are requested.

    If you have aspirations to become a architect this certification has got to be a must.
