Last week I completed the TOGAF 9.1 foundation sucessfully. I felt few questions were confusing. Below are the things I studied:

purchased study material from togaf site, I think the one I purchased is similar to the below.

http://pubs.opengroup.org/architecture/togaf9-doc/arch/

Also check the FAQ lists I added to this group which has some pointers.

google for practice tests.

The study guide I got is copyright protected, sorry can't share the material.

All the best to you

Thanks
Ayub

Congratulations! And thanks for adding to the FAQ. I'm taking the course next month; these links will be useful.

Did you feel that the practice questions were the same level of difficulty as the actual exam?

60% of exam questions were of the same level as that of practice tests. 20% were confusing/tricky and 10% were straight forward.
To give you some pointers, questions about outputs of each phase in the ADM cycle was little tricky.

All the best!

Congrats Ayub !!!

Just a quick question, how much time you spend on this and were you having any previous experience of using TOGAF? I am just trying to understand how much time i need to set aside.

Congrats once again

I spent around 1 month, daily 2 hours and then 4 hours during the weekends. I did not have any prior experience using TOGAF, however if you know the software development process will surely help.

All the best!
