    Default New to ITIL Foundation

    Hello

    Ive been working in IT Support for over 7 years and am familiar with ITIL and its workings in the workplace, however I want to obtain a foundation certificate for now to back my experience up.

    At this moment in time I just want to PASS, theres so many book recommendations, I would like to just stick to one , read it thoroughly and take the exam, alongside take some practise online tests, I see on eBay theres some Exam simulators available, but at this moment in time my brains dead with all the different posts and resources!

    I came across Claires Essentials book, something like that is ideal, but again I see posts referring to that PLUS other books which makes it confusing

    Any guidance would be much appreciated, thanks!

    Hi maroofc,

    I've actually written 2 books to prep for the Foundation exam, to make it more confusing

    ITIL Foundation Essentials is a pocket book with just the facts you need to pass the exam - perfect for someone like you with ITIL experience
    ITIL Lifecycle Essentials is a bigger book with everything you need for the exam plus all the bits that aren't on the Foundation syllabus, it's meant to support you as you work with ITIL after you've taken the exam too

    Both books are fully assessed against the Foundation syllabus so you only need one to prepare, although it does seem some people like to buy a few. Any book you buy that is an official ITIL product (like mine) will have been assessed to get you ready for the exam.

    Hope that helps

    Claire

    Hi wissam123,

    2011 is the current version of ITIL - V3 has been retired. My book is aligned with the ITIL 2011 syllabus so you'll be right up to date. I'm not sure about exam codes - you can buy it direct from Loyalist Certification Services :: Loyalist Certification Services and that way you'll get the right version.

    Good luck!

    Claire

    Hi Claire,
    I'm pursuing the ITIL Foundation certification too, since I'm in the ITSM for a while and i want to certificate what I do every day. Is this your pocket book? ITIL Foundation Handbook (Little ITIL) - 2011 Edition (Single Copies) i just bought it on amazon and start reading. Hope it will be straightforward to take and pass the exam

    Hi lelloz0

    The pocket book you've bought is the official ITIL publisher's one - I was on the author team so you have a chapter in there that was written by me

    It will give you everything you need for the exam and it's very well put together, the other authors on the team were all excellent.

    This is the book I wrote on my own: ITIL Foundation Essentials: The exam facts you need

    but the book you've purchased will be all you need. Enjoy the reading and good luck with the exam, let us know how it goes!

    Hi Claire

    I am also going for the exam could you please tell me the difference between ITIL Foundation V3 Or 2011 . I am not sure which version is updated or what is the difference between. and can you guide me which one is the best online training provider for the exam. Or just reading with the book we can pass the exam. How much is the course and the exam cost. How is the exam and how much study it required and as far question is it from your book or it is senario based.

    And also where to give the exam online or prometric center. And after passing the exam should we receive any kind of ID which state that we are certified ITIL...

    Please guide me with these info

    Thanks
    shaz

    Hi shazb,

    You'll find most of this information on these boards, but here are a few quick answers:

    ITIL 2011 is the latest version - an update to V3
    I'd say my company is the best online training provider - take a look around but make sure you choose an accredited company
    You can certainly pass the exam using a prep book - take a look around but again look for something official and approved - you could try my ITIL Lifecycle Essentials
    The course and exam cost varies from organisation to organisation
    The exam has a 96% pass rate globally so as long as you study you'll be fine - allow about 18 hours
    You can take the exam online or in a test centre, after you pass you'll get a certificate that confirms your certified status

    Kind regards

    Claire

    Uh.... dude are you for real? TechExams is such an invaluable forum for exam and career advice, but a lot of your questions have already been answered, or they're self-explanatory, or they're easily found with some initiative and Google-fu.

    I wish you the best of luck in your studies, but I think you're coming across quite "dependent" to put it one way. If you are worried about passing the Foundations, don't. As others have said, the pass rate is something like 96%, and the training classes are 2-3 days. I personally only studied about 2-3 days and destroyed Foundation. This is not something that warrants a bunch of posts!

    These are not the [s]droids[/s] exams you are looking for.

    Hi shazb,

    I would advise you to wait for your books to arrive and then study using those. The foundation syllabus is pointing you to the ITIL core volumes, but you don't need access to those to study for the exam - they would be way too much. Be wary of youtube videos as well, as many are inaccurate.

    If you find you still have many questions after using the books, you might benefit from a training course - that way you can get all the support you need.

    Kind regards

    Claire

    ITIL Foundation Certification helps to understand basic knowledge of ITIL. It is also required to understand ITIL Framework. ITIL foundation certification is mandatory to take next ITIL certifications I.e ITIL Intermediate certifications
