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.

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 on TOGAF 9.1 in 2014, and have taught over 10,000 students on that subject since then. I am a member of the Open Group, and also hold a commercial license to teach TOGAF.
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 too.
Please don't hesitate to drop me a message if you have a suggestion for a topic for one of my courses, or need help with something. I may not always be able to help you directly, but I would still love to talk to you.
