TOGAF Foundation Level Certification – Practice Test

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 is couple 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
