Preparing for TOGAF 9 Foundation Certificate

Today I read a questions asked on one of LinkedIn’s forums about mock exams for TOGAF 9 certification.

TOGAF Version 9 Foundation Study Guide

TOGAF Version 9 Foundation Study Guide

Since I’ve passed few months ago that exam I decided to help people who want to get that certification too.
The best book in my humble opinion is TOGAF Version 9 Foundation Study Guide written by Rachel Harrison. It is good for start and covers only necessary in context of exam knowledge areas. It can be read and understood without priori knowledge of Enterprise Architecture or TOGAF. Book was specifically designed to help individuals prepare for certification and you can feel it. It has good structure, there are 13 main chapters plus some additional ones. After each chapter there are review questions, so you can check yourself if you understand material well. There are also two mock exams in the book.
I’ve read that book twice and  pass mock exams few times before taking the real one.

TOGAF 9 Foundation Part 1 Exam Preparation Course in a Book for Passing the TOGAF 9 Foundation Part 1 Certified Exam - The How To Pass on Your First Try Certification Study Guide

There is also another book that covers topic of TOGAF 9 Basics. It is called TOGAF 9 Foundation Part 1 Exam Preparation Course in a Book for Passing the TOGAF 9 Foundation Part 1 Certified Exam – The How To Pass on Your First Try Certification Study Guide. Pretty long name 😉

The problem with that book is that I have a feeling that this book isn’t entirely on a subject of TOGAF 9 Foundations exam. In my opinion there are some chunks from preceding version(s) of TOGAF. There are many typos and at least two wrong answers in mock exam.

I read that book once and made mock exam (which is very hard) few times.

I definitely encourage you to read the first book if you’re preparing by yourself to the TOGAF 9 Level 1 – Foundation exam.
