How to Pass the TOGAF® Exam - Step-by-step Guide

  1. Attend a Part 1 and 2 TOGAF® Training Course

  2. Book an exam time with the exam voucher provided, through the Prometric website

  3. Read and re-read the TOGAF® course material and resources

  4. Learn the TOGAF® terminology, language, and structure

  5. Memorise the ADM Diagram - draw this at the beginning of the exam on your spare paper so that you can logically work through the framework-related questions

  6. Arrive early to the exam venue

  7. Take your time - there are 60 minutes to answer 40 questions for the Part 1 exam and 90 minutes to answer 8 scenario questions in the Part 2 exam. You have plenty of time so don’t rush

  8. Gradually and systematically work through the exam questions

  9. If you are unsure of an answer, eliminate the incorrect answers to leave you with fewer options to consider

  10. If you have spare time, calculate how many questions you are certain that you have the correct answer for - you need 22 correct answers to pass the Part 1 exam
