Just passed the TOGAF 9 Certified Exam (Level 1 and 2) with 90% pass mark!

Just passed the TOGAF 9 Level 1 and 2 Combined exam with a pass mark of 90/100. Part 2 was particularly difficult as expected and really tests your knowledge well. In particular, it tested my knowledge of the different architecture viewpoints that are tailored to match stakeholder concerns.

I won't give too much away (lest I violate the non-disclosure agreement) - but the official Study Guide for Part 2  (https://www2.opengroup.org/ogsys/jsp/publications/PublicationDetails.jsp?catalogno=b096) absolutely has to be known back-to-front to be able to answer the Part 2 questions. It contains content that isn't obvious from the publicly-available TOGAF 9.1 document (http://pubs.opengroup.org/architecture/togaf9-doc/arch/)
I was a bit worried going into the exam as I had just discovered one of my colleagues failed the TOGAF 8 bridging exam. Luckily I survived the gauntlet (with several late nights of study) and made it through.

Thanks for sharing your expereince of passing the exam. I too took the Combined exam and found that the Part 1 was a really good warm-up for Part 2. For anyone who hasn't yet passed the exams I think I would recommend taking the combined approach. There is a good Quiz for the Foundation Level Exam over at http://hexopus.com/togaf-study-guide/togaf-9-foundation-quiz/ for anyone just starting out.

Hi all
I have created a quick reference Cheat Sheet for TOGAF which came very handy during my TOGAF preparation. These cheat sheets are available from my blog @ http://yaathirigan.blogspot.in/2013/03/togaf-prep-material.html

I hope people looking forward for their Foundation & Certification exam might find this handy.

Will i be allowed to change the order of attempting Part1 and Part2 in the combined exam?
