Hi All,

I completed TOGAF 9 Foundation scoring 80% marks with the self-study approach. I completed the exam in 18 minutes flat.
But, it also meant I answered 4 questions wrong (which I could have answered correctly).
Anyways, it was such a rush and I enjoyed it while it lasted. And that's what matters!!
I did not have much knowledge about TOGAF so my preparation took 3 weeks with 4 focused hours each day.
Along with TOGAF 9 doc, I used the self study guide which has lot of sample Q&A which really helped.

Aiming to complete the next level in the next 3 weeks.

Cheers,
Yuvaraj

Congrats. How did you study besides reading the guide? Flash cards? Summaries? Something else?

Congrats Yuvraj. That's quite a bit of focus to study for 3 weeks straight. When I picked up the guide, I was falling asleep on the second day

Thanks guys!
@Jeanne When I first started reading the guide, I felt it was not comprehensive enough for me to grasp the concepts. So, I started reading the TOGAF 9 documentation and some other material on the internet to gain understanding of the ADM, Iterations, Continuum etc. That reduced the amount of things that I had to memorize. Having said that, how I interpreted and remembered the concepts didn't necessarily translate into the TOGAF language (some of the words and phrases it uses), though I was able to articulate and also apply them well (to some of the scenarios from Level 2). The final aspect to my prep was the Q&A which helped me with what to expect and also I knew time was never going to be factor (which was a BIG relief). And the whole process was iterative of course ! :-)
@Jayesh I agree that some parts are really dry like Enterprise Continuum and Architecture Governance. I had to struggle to read those up. But, I spent minimal time on the first few passes of my prep on such topics. I must admit my understanding is still fuzzy.
