TOGAF Foundation Level Certification – Practice Test (free sample questions)


If you plan to appear for a TOGAF foundation level certification or part 1 exam, one of the difficulties you will face is a lack of free sample questions. Some questions are provided as a part of the study guide, but if you want to more practice then you will have tough time locating anything freely available on the net. Here few of links which I could locate:

This lack of practice multiple choice questions prompted me to create my own set. I have gone by the advice of Chris Eaton to create this paper before I take the test to avoid any issue that these questions copy the official exam questions.

If you are interested in Part 2 then this may help you: TOGAF – Preparation Aid for Part 2

  20. ssaj2 says:

    Hi Udayan,
    The answer to your 2nd question doesn’t match with the definition given in TOGAF training guide for 9.1. As per the guide, definition of Architecture is – A – “The fundamental organization of a system, embodied in its components, their relationships to each other and the environment, and the principles governing its design and evolution”. But the answer in your doc says “E”.
    Can you clarify it?

    Thanks,
    Sanjay

    • Udayan Banerjee says:

      Sanjay

      Please check the section 2.2 of TOGAF 9.1 specification.

      2.2 What is Architecture in the Context of TOGAF?

      ISO/IEC 42010: 2007 defines ‘‘architecture’’ as:
      ‘‘The fundamental organization of a system, embodied in its components, their
      relationships to each other and the environment, and the principles governing its design
      and evolution.’’

      TOGAF embraces but does not strictly adhere to ISO/IEC 42010: 2007 terminology. In TOGAF,
      ‘‘architecture’’ has two meanings depending upon the context:

      1. A formal description of a system, or a detailed plan of the system at component level to
      guide its implementation
      2. The structure of components, their inter-relationships, and the principles and guidelines
      governing their design and evolution over time

      What you have indicated is ISO/IEC 42010 definition.

  21. Prasad says:

    Hi, thanks for the excellent material about TOGAF: I have cleared Combined Part 1 (75%) and Part 2 (90%).

  22. Rajiv Dua says:

    For TOGAF 9 sample questions, we have another website – The OpenArch
    http://theopenarch.com/81-tests/72-togaf-9-exam-tests.html

    Highly recommended that you DO NOT read this. Avoid.
    As this will create confusion.

    The answers are all WRONG.

    UDAYAN you will be a great saver if I clear my exam tomorrow – will keep posted!

  23. Udayan Banerjee says:

    Congratulations Nagesh

  24. Nagesh says:

    Hi Udayan,

    Thanks for putting together two practice tests for Foundation.
    I cleared my Foundation exam today . With not many sample tests available, your blog was very helpful.

    Thanks.

  25. Ashish Ranjan says:

    Hello Sir , have a query … must be lame enough , but I want to know whether Training from authorized center is Mandatory prior to taking the TOGAF Level 1 and Level 2 Certification .

    Many Thanks
    Ashish

  26. Sudipta Dutta says:

    Hi Udayan-da,
    Your blogs have helped me a lot in clearing TOGAF certification exam with score of 90% in OGO-093.
    My sincere thanks once again for this splendid blog.
    Regards
    Sudipta

  27. Junior says:

    I cleared the exam last week. Thanks for all your insights. I used the study material in the website http://pubs.opengroup.org/architecture/togaf9-doc/arch/index.html. I should say if you have read the material atleast once Scenario questions aren’t that difficult. Before the exam I took Chris sample questions and failed. But the actual exam was much easier I should say.

    So go ahead guys this exam is not to test your architecture skills, it is to make sure you have read the TOGAF material.

    Now, I am looking for applying these principles in real life.

    All the best to folks who plan to take the exam.

    Regards
    Junior

    Hello
    I found your information very useful. I am looking for togaf version 9 foundation study guide which can be downloaded free. Can you give some pointers ?
    Thanks.

  29. Sam says:

    Here are the objectives of phase H based on 9.1 documentation:
    • Ensure that the architecture lifecycle is maintained
    • Ensure that the Architecture Governance Framework is executed
    • Ensure that the enterprise’s Architecture Capability meets current requirements

    I was not able to answer 19 since the objectives seem to have changed.

    Also, in case of question 31, isn’t ‘context’ part of Architectural Governance Conceptual Structure?

    • Udayan Banerjee says:

      Thanks again for pointing out the error in Q19.

      However, Q31 is not affected by Togaf 9.1. If you see the Architecture Capability Framework diagram – it contains Process, Content, Repository & Process Flow Control.

      • Udayan Banerjee says:

        Sam has raised an interesting point, that is “is context a part of the architecture governance framework?”

        Apart from providing the diagram, the TOGAF document does not provide much explanation apart from saying that “The split of process, content, and context are key to the support of the architecture governance initiative, by allowing the introduction of new governance material (legal, regulatory, standards based, or legislative) without unduly impacting the processes.”

        I am inclined to think that the “context” defines the boundary of the framework and the “Process, Content, Repository and Process Flow Control” are its constituents.

  30. Sam says:

    I was not able to verify that option C for question 18 is correct in the Foundation level study guide i.e.
    C: To finalize the Architecture Vision and Architecture Definition Documents, in line with the agreed implementation approach

    Can you please point out where is this information.
    Thanks for posting TOGAF part I sample test.

    • Udayan Banerjee says:

      See 7.8.1 – these are the objective of phase F:

      – To ensure that the Implementation and Migration Plan is coordinated with the various management frameworks in use within the enterprise

      – To prioritize all work packages, projects, and building blocks by assigning business value to each and conducting a cost/benefit analysis

      – To finalize the Architecture Vision and Architecture Definition Documents, in line with the agreed implementation approach

      – To confirm the Transition Architectures defined in Phase E with the relevant stakeholders

      – To create, evolve, and monitor the detailed Implementation and Migration Plan, providing necessary resources to enable the realization of the Transition Architectures, as defined in Phase E

      • Sam says:

        It seems The Open group has changed objectives of phase F in the latest Study guide.; I purchased it recently.

        This is what I see :

        (Syllabus Reference: Unit 6, Learning Outcome F.1: You should
        be able to describe the main objectives for Phase F.)
        • Finalize the Architecture Roadmap and the supporting Implementation and Migration Plan
        • Ensure that the Implementation and Migration Plan is coordinated with the enterprise’s
        approach to managing and implementing change in the enterprise’s overall change portfolio
        • Ensure that the business value and cost of work packages and Transition Architectures is
        understood by key stakeholders

        Thanks

      • Udayan Banerjee says:

        Thanks for pointing it out.

    I had to give up after few questions. I do not get your fundamental logic or terminology ?
    For example:
    Q1: What do you exactly mean by “TOGAF document” ?
    Q2: What is the difference between A and E beside existrence of plans and descriptions in E? Architecture can exist even if it is not described. By saying E is the right answer, you implay architecture does not exist if it is not described? Ie not discovered by arhitect? Descriptions and plans are just architects view on the architecture. Systems and their architectures do exist even if never seen by humans.
    ….
    etc
    ….
    HTH ?

    Hi Udayan,

    I am preparing to give the part 2 (certification) of the TOGAF exam. I have read thru the study guide. Is there any other preparation you would suggest.
    regards
    SUNIL

  33. Jon CRG says:

    Good assortment of questions, Thanks for putting this together !

  34. GSP says:

    Dear Uday. Thanks for you part 1 sample questions.
    Do you have any sample questions for part 2 i.e. togaf certified
    regards
    GSP

    • Udayan Banerjee says:

      Not yet.

      • Jini says:

        Hi Udayan,

        It looks like all the provided options for Q34 are true for that question as per TOGAF 9 Foundation Guide page 169 ‘recommended steps’. I could not find the right answer for that?

        Please can you clarify?

        Also as I mentioned I am going to book a test in early March and I am almost done with my preparations, is it sitll mendatory to read v9.1? The link here http://www.opengroup.org/togaf/faqs.htm specifies that either would be fine before June2013 but some of the online practice tests have asked questions based on v9.1 as well? Any idea?

        Many thanks.

        Kind Regards
        Jini

      • Udayan Banerjee says:

        You analyze the “Concern” and not the “Requirement” – slight difference.

        These tests have been originally developed for ver. 9.

        Subsequently, I have made modifications so that they are compatible with 9.1
