Choosing EA Principals was the best decision I made for my TOGAF certification! EA Principals' TOGAF training materials greatly simplified matter and enabled me to pass the tests within weeks. I got 85 for level 1 and 80 for level 2. I benefited from a training program tailored to my needs. I appreciate EA Principals' assisting me to reach my special goal.
To summarize, EA Principals' training program has the following advantages:
1) Flexible training program
EA Principals is more flexible than any other training providers I considered. It provides separate test vouchers for level 1 & 2, which is important. Reason for this is that it may be difficult to do well in a level 2 test if combined with level 1, because it is a different kind of test from level 1 and the mental switch is significant.
They would also provide free retake test voucher(s) if you failed on the first try.
2) On target training materials
It was advice from Steve Else on what to focus on that led me to successfully pass both tests. He gave me clear direction about what slides to read and what practice tests to take.
The EA Principals' briefing slides were only 215 pages long for level 1 and 218 pages for level 2. Their practice tests provided sufficient coverage of all the subject areas in sufficient depth. It was an effective training program that allowed me to pass the tests within a minimum amount of time!
3) Clear messages
TOGAF contains quite some "big" words with no concrete meanings. Steve Else's uses things that we could relate to, to explain the seemingly abstract concepts and made it easy to distinguish between them. He is a talented teacher as well as an expert in the subject area.
4) Outstanding training manager
Last but not least, Fawn is brilliant! She always does what she has promised. She was patient and went above and beyond.
Thank you, EA Principals! Highly recommended!
