New videos recorded Apr 2016. Part 2 Sample Questions added. With subtitles.

More than 15,000 students have joined my Part 1 course, and more than 9,000 students have joined my Part 2 course. More than 2,500 reviews between the two courses!

  This course goes through the process of studying for the TOGAF 9 Part 1, Part 2 and Combined exams. I go through what you need to do to prepare for the exam in the weeks leading up to the test, and how to approach the exam itself on the day of the test.

  I also link to the best resources I have found online for studying for this test. I link to free resources, cheap and inexpensive ones, and even blog posts I have found. 

  By the end of this short course, you will know how to approach studying for the exam. I want to be clear that this course does not cover the TOGAF 9 specification itself. This class alone is not sufficient for taking the TOGAF exams. But I do lay out a schedule for you to study over 4-5 weeks that you can follow. 

  I am TOGAF 9 Certified, having passed both the Part 1 and Part 2 exams. And I am also a member of the Open Group's Architecture Forum. I hold a commercial license to teach the TOGAF 9 Specification.

Thank you for signing up for this course on Udemy. The course will always be up-to-date here and nowhere else. I am also available for questions inside the course discussion board.

Who this course is for:

  • Students who plan to take the TOGAF Architecture exam: Part 1, Part 2 or Combined
  • Students who would like to know what is the best study strategy
  • Students who would like to know what is the best test taking strategy while in the testing center

Hi there, my name is Scott Duffy. And I love making complex technical topics easy to understand. 

    This has been the basis of my entire career – as a developer, as a development manager, as a software architect – over the past 20 years. I spend half my time in the world of business, explaining complex technical topics to business owners and stakeholders so that they can understand and agree with my approach to solving their business problems with technical solutions. And the other half with developers, explaining the business reasons behind decisions and ensuring that any decisions made on the technical side don't restrict the business in unexpected ways. 

    And I'm here on Udemy to teach what I know in an approachable way. I started teaching courses in 2014, and have taught over 600,000 students. I am grateful every day for being able to connect with so many students in almost every country around the world.

    I'm a certified Enterprise Architect and certified cloud architect. I have been developing with Microsoft technologies for 20 years, starting with Classic ASP, and all the versions of .NET. We now live in the cloud era, with Microsoft Azure being prevalent in most large enterprises. I'm certified as an Azure Architect and Developer too. As well as AWS Solution Architect Associate (SAA).

    Certified as an MCT by Microsoft.
