"The course wasn’t a teach-to-the-test format. It was a great intro for someone who knew nothing about TOGAF in advance. Class discussions were very valuable because Steve was able to share his real world practice of the concepts."
I was trained on TOGAF® 9.1 by Dr. Steve and I had a great experience with EA Principals. Btw, I had scored a 100% on the TOGAF® Level 2.

The 3-day intro-to-intermediate (Sparx) class provided a holistic understanding of EA concepts and the tool. The combination of lecture and exercise was invaluable. J.D Baker was an excellent instructor. he was able to answer all questions presented to him.
"I really wanted to thank you and Kevin for your help and preparation for this. I am Dyslexic and an Engineer, the detailed Wordiness of this TOGAF Exam does not play to my strengths but thanks to Course, the Exam prep guide , and the Review session below which I took yesterday to act as revision I passed. So :-)"

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 programEA 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 materialsIt 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 messagesTOGAF 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 managerLast 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!Emily Zhang, Enterprise Architect
