    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. 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.

    Hi certv9,

    I passed TOGAF (both levels) recently in June 2018.
    As far as prep is concerned, Official study guides from the Open Group are sufficient.
    Part 2 is slightly difficult as questions are screnario based and you cannot pass without line by line reading of the guide.
    But good part is you do not need to memorize all the stuff, just need to have a broader idea of TOGAF ADM and then search through the PDF given in the exam. But do not rely entirely on the PDF as searching for too many trivial things in exam will eat away your time.
    TOGAF practice tests available with both the official study guides are quite helpful.
    I found that the sample questions at the open arch website are irrelevant and do not represent the TOGAF level 2 exam in any manner. Refer to the official practice test only.
    Let me know if you have any specific questions around preparation.


    Thanks
