    Good luck on those exams! I'm up in the air about either doing my Masters in Cybersecurity, AWS Certified SA, or CISSP-ISSAP. But taking a break to let me brain heal for a bit.

    I recommend using Scott Duphy's video's on Udemy. Wait till they go on sale for like $9.99 a course well worth it. Might also be worth getting his Part 2 for TOGAF v9.1 since the OpenGroup won't be enforcing the actual 9.2 exam till 2019. So the material is still revelant.

    As for the material from The Open Group, you have everything you need. I recommend doing as much memorization of both Part 1 and Part 2 even though Part 2 is openbook. I didn't reference the PDF during the exam for any of the Part 2 section so it's definetly doable but not recommended from experience lol.

    I'm old school, so I printed the PDF's out into 2 binders, 1 at the office and one at home.

    Lastly, flash cards on Quizlet helped a lot.

    People out there say you only need about 2 weeks or so to prep YMMV. I learned a lot so I took about 2 months to prep for this. Well worth the read.

    Good luck on your journey to the TOGAF Certification.

    I've been thinking about the CISSP-ISSAP, but I don't see it being requested in a lot of jobs, except for DoD. It's been on my list for a while, but want to skin some other cats in he mean time because of industry, emerging technologies, etc....Good luck on the CISSP-ISSAP exam!!!
