TOGAF 9 Certification Multiple Choice Questions August 24, 2009

Posted by Chris Eaton in Uncategorized.
Tags: , , , , , , ,

there has been a lot of requests for TOGAF 9 questions so here is a set I made up for the multiple choice sections of the Certification and Bridging exams. I have not taken the exam yet but i have seen some of the example test papers

download the sample questions

*** update*** download the TOGAF 9 part 2 exam examples – these are the scenario questions

*** update *** I just posted an updated version of the questions following excellent feedback from Yuriy pointing out an error or two!

I should be taking the exam myself in the next couple of weeks, just as soon as our overdue baby arrives…

Hi Chris

cannot thank you more for your effort in preparing the practice questionnaire and sharing it. Found it to be very insightful and helpful for my preparation.

From Germany

chriseaton - September 6, 2009

did you take the exam? how did it go? what did you think?

Tariq - October 11, 2010

Hi Vass,

I am trying to do the Togaf part 2 exam, do you have senario questions and any material that helps passing the exam. I appreciate it if you send to me at tariqabuzaid@hotmail.com

2. Hassan - September 5, 2009

Hia, hoping u r TOGAF 9 certified. If u have more Qs specially scenario based, can u please send to me at hamidhsn@gmail.com Thanks in advance

Hi Chris,

I am planning to take up TOGAF 9 ( foundation + certified ). I know for Foundation suggested Study Material is “Togaf 9 foundation Study Guide” but for the certified there is NO books as of now. Please suggest what to read

4. chriseaton - October 6, 2009

you are right the Study guide is positioned for part 1 exam only – for anyone interested the book can be purchased here -> http://www.theopengroupbookshop.com/product_info.php?products_id=796

i am writing some example scenario questions and hope to have them published shortly

The open group website states that a second guide for the 2nd exam is under development although no date is given

In the meantime how about try the TOGAF 9 example questions from the open group themselves -> http://www.opengroup.org/bookstore/catalog/b093.htm

5. MC - March 4, 2010

For those who are preparing or have already taken the Part 1 exam, is the free downloadable Togaf 9 pdf enough to prepare (excluding the practice questions) or do you recommend using (buying) the Exam 1 study guide? I am trying to decide whether the $30 for the study guide is worth it or not. Thanks in advance for any advice on this.

I’ve gone trough the foundation study guide in “moderate” detail then the test yourself questions after every chapter and also gone trough the 40 exam test questions at the very end of the guide and have done very well so far. However, I’ve also downloaded and gone trough you’re “Togaf 9 Multiple Choice questions” and did NOT do very well at all. So a little concerned, Is the multiple choice questions deriving from Exam part 1 (Foundation Material)? The Study guide exams provided me with a false persception that I understood the theoretical concepts well enough but apparently that isnt the case..

Is the multiple choice questions a more realistic example of the real test questions vs the study guide?

Could it be that perhaps I am missing some vital study material?

Where could I aquire more test exam questions for the Foundation Exam Part 1?

any help is appreciated.!
thank you for your time.

chriseaton - October 18, 2010

my set of questions is intended to be difficult so dont be discouraged. If you are doing well in the open group practice tests then go for it their questions have a range of difficulty whereas mine are all targetted at the hard end. GL!

8. H.A - October 19, 2010

thanks Chris.. in that case I’ll go over the multiple choice once again and also the practice test that came with the Study Kit then review pocket guide and reference cards… Hoping to schedule the test for early next week.

thanks for your valuable input.

9. Troy Campano - December 29, 2010

Hi Chris,
Appreciate your collection of fantastic questions on TOGAF
I would like to include your questions and answers along with some of the questions i’hve gathered to provide a online test (to be hosted on GoogleAppEngine and free to every one!), hope you have no issues.


chriseaton - February 14, 2011

fine with me, sounds like a good idea, if it could be made just the exam that would be perfect

Yahya - February 19, 2012

could u please mail me these qustions

13. Ajay - March 24, 2011

Hi Troy,
I was searching information on TOGAF and came across your blog, nice write up.
I have around five years of software design and development experience and recently completed my Sun Certified Enterprise Architect exam and now looking at TOGAF certification.
I wanted to ask you, does completing TOGAF really adds any value?
It would be great if you can share information on what benefits you got after taking this certification.


Ajay - March 24, 2011

should be Chris instead of Troy
sorry for that

chriseaton - March 24, 2011


does TOGAF certification add real value? hmm good question

i think the answer is yes, i think it does demonstrate a commitment to architecture and personal development as a current or potential employee at any point in your career, as a budding architect or an old warhorse and that you are familiar with this well know methodology.

i have passed the Sun/Oracle Certified Enterprise Architect(SCEA) exams as well as TOGAF. You will find the TOGAF exam a great deal easier and quicker to achieve. It also has wider, general recognition.

I like to think of the SCEA as a secret society because if you have passed it, you know it is hard, and you cant help respect anyone else who has passed it!

Ajay - March 24, 2011

thanks for the response
Just came across another certification IATC from open group, wondering which one i should go for IATC or TOGAF?
It would be great to know your opinion on this

14. chriseaton - March 24, 2011

do you mean ITAC?

ITAC is a higher end certification than either TOGAF or SCEA, and not surprisingly more effort to achieve

Regarding the value of ITAC this is more tricky to judge. I dont believe it has widespread recognition and it is alot of effort, comparable to SCEA at least.
Having said that, in the interests of professionalism in architecture i do believe this is the way (or the sort of way) architects should be evaluated and entitled or denied to use the name ‘architect’

the ITAC certification is not an exam. you create a document following the ITAC template and submit this for review. The document looks at your own skill assessment, detail job profiles, references and contributions to architecture to assess you as an architect. The last step is a panel interview. It is not a light undertaking.

I do have ITAC certification too, if you need any help let me know glad to help out

15. Ajay - March 24, 2011

yup i meant ITAC.
I have decided to go for TOGAF first.
Thanks for offering the help, i really appreciate it. Will get in touch if need any help during my preparation.

20. Ben - April 10, 2011

Hi Chris,

I am taking the TOGAF Foundation Exam tomorrow and found your blog a few days ago and associated questions. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and putting together a set of practice questions. I have one query, Question #2 regarding Architecture Building blocks, the stated answer is (B) ‘Building blocks cannot be decomposed into smaller supporting building blocks’. Section 37.2.2 states a good building block: ‘It may be a subassembly of other building blocks.’ which in my mind implies that a building block could (in some situations) be decomposed into its constituent building blocks. What do you think?


21. Kris - May 28, 2011

Which of the following is not true of the Architecture Development Method?
a) The ADM explains how generic solutions can be specialized to support an organisation
b) The ADM has ten phases
c) The ADM provides a tested process for developing architectures
d) The ADM is iterative
e) The ADM allows organisations to transform their enterprise in response to business goals and opportunities

My question is “does ADM has ten phases”? Answer is given as “A”. Can I know why?

Chris Eaton - June 30, 2011

the reason is that the Enterprise Continuum covers answer A rather than the ADM

TOGAF includes the concept of the Enterprise Continuum, which sets the broader context for an architect and explains how generic solutions can be leveraged and specialized in order to support the requirements of an individual organization. The Enterprise Continuum is a view of the Architecture Repository that provides methods for classifying architecture and solution artifacts as they evolve from generic Foundation Architectures to Organization-Specific Architectures. The Enterprise Continuum comprises two complementary concepts: the Architecture Continuum and the Solutions Continuum.

Martin - July 19, 2011

The ADM has 9 phases not 10 and therefore B is also not true.

vadi - February 1, 2013

ADM has 10 phases

Douglas Brown - April 8, 2013

Hi, Chris: I found most of TOGAF to be very useful but I have to say I never did quite figure out the value of the Enterprise Continuum other than to point out in a picture that elements can range from solution-speciifc to enterprise-generic. Is it actually used for anything?

22. DG - July 26, 2011

Hi thanks for this. Did frighten me at first how many I got wrong but thanks to your answers I can quickly navigate to the section and check… which is what I did for Question 25 and spotted a misleading typo.
answer a) should pobably read ‘Catastrophic, CRITICAL, Marginal and Negligible” I found “crucial” to be a red herring and tripped up. But this is not to nip pick. It is an observation for continuous improvement for the community. thanks again. ;o)

29. Sanjeev - November 6, 2011

Hi Chris,

I wanted to have some information on the retake policy. Suppose I take OGO-093 combined exam and flunk either in Part1 or in Part2, as per policy the wait period is for 1 month. My question is do in need to take both the exam or only retake the exam which i have flunked?

Your advice will be appreiciated.

Chris Eaton - November 6, 2011

hmm good question and i dont know the answer im afraid

Sanjeev - November 7, 2011

Ok, Chris .. I got the information from The Open group site


“TOGAF 9 Combined Part 1 and 2 – This is a combined TOGAF 9 Part 1 and Part 2 examination for candidates who want to achieve Level 2 certification directly in a single examination. It consists of two sections, with pass marks as per the TOGAF 9 Part 1 and 2 examinations described above. Each section must be passed in order to obtain an overall pass mark. If you fail a section then no certification is awarded, however you only need retake the Examination(s) corresponding to the failed section(s). “

30. Nilanjan Roy - November 29, 2011

Hi Chris,

Hope you are aware of the plugin for the Enterprise Architect tool (from Sparx Systems )named as MDG Technology for TOGAF. Here we can model almost all the phases of TOGAF-ADM, TOGAF-Enterprise Continnum, and TOGAF_SIB. How useful this tool would be for the exam… Can you please help me getting a real world example where these phases can be implemented to the possible extent ?

Precisely is that both levels span over complete TOGAF study guide or Level 1 covers only specific topics or headers ?

[…] The questions in this free mock exam were significantly harder than the mock exam.  The site says they were created by a team of TOGAF certified architects.  However, all three exams were published elsewhere on the internet first.  Where the authors said they took them before taking the real exam. There are a ton of ads on the exam – 2 per question.  I found some grammar issues.   That said, it was helpful to take them for learning/flashcard type purposes.  Note that these exams were originally published under separate cover – no need to take them in both places.  The originals are here, here and here.
