Obtaining the TOGAF 9 Foundation certificate

I am currently busy to get the TOGAF9 Foundation certification. Well, currently is not as current as it seems. I have all the documentation and course material available for over a year now but never bothered to go for the last step, getting the certificate. Although there will always be discussion about the use of the certificate I find a good way to finish this subject and be ready for the next interesting thing I run into. And of course when I say finish I mean to ‘study’ it not to use it in practice where it is applicable 🙂
The way I am preparing for the certification is mainly by going through the study guide. Next to this I will study the course material I got here. When that is done I should be ready to run some test exams with good result and go for the real thing.
In the remainder of the post I will state some things about TOGAF I run into so I create a summary of the summary for myself.
