    Congrats!

    I received a print-out after my exam with the percentages.

    If you still want to know, you have to get an account on exin.com (don't worry if when directs to exin.nl on login). Once you have a login, access through "MyLogin" which will open a new window. Then you have "Exams and Results" > "My Exams" > "Coaching Report".

    I studied off and on for a month and a half (was studying for other exams though), it was pretty rough, almost as bad as Project+. In the end there are some good concepts in the framework that can be applied to business. I would say a core amount of study was 1-2 solid weeks 2-4 hours a day.

    There is quite a bit of material to cover, the concepts are dry and all condensed down to a 45 question test. The good part is that the pass percent is low but I was going for 100% and scored pretty high. I think I know the ones I missed that I changed the answer last minute. I used a combination of online Skillsoft training, painfully used the Syllabus with a borrowed copy of the ITIL books. I did lookup the Liz book which does a really good job of pulling out the Syllabus content. I saw a sample chapter and I would have preferred going that route.

    I also found a really good chart that was helpful and you should study. It is mind numbing though but paired with your study it will slowly start to make sense.

    You also have their new latest mind map: http://itil.ittraininggzonel.netdna-cdn.com/images/pdfs/ITIL_2011_Mind_Maps.pdf

    Hi TheChameleon

    Glad you found our free resources useful! The V3 at a Glance download you've put is out of date now - you can find the lastest version (a bit more streamlined too!) here: ITIL on a Page

    Claire,

    Yes, Thanks for this, it was very helpful. The download helped me get my brain wrapped around all the concepts and actually helpful for the test to understand what is done where. I actually prefer the longer version of your "At A Glance" from a business perspective since there are more specifics and the new one a good condensed version for study review. For anyone reading for tips, I was say start out with the short version of the "At A Glance" that Claire provided and end your study with the detailed older version.

    After doing the mind-numbing Skillsoft course and plugging away at our ITIL books with the Syllabus for a couple weeks going back and forth, I thought, you know let me look for these "books" that everyone was talking about. I did review the sample chapters of your book as well which was very good.

    In the end I would have preferred to have a study guide book that pulled all the syllabus content. I can say that it takes a special person(s) to compact and organize the ITIL content and write a book that is easy to read and learn from.

    Just curious, how do you guys list the certification on your resume? I've seen some coworkers just list it as "ITIL 2011" or "ITIL v3" on their resume after passing the foundation exam...don't you need to also add the license #?
  • Claire AgutterClaire Agutter Member Posts: 772 ■■■■■■■□□□
    Hi zcarenow

    It's normal to put ITIL Foundation certified - you can add if it's V3, 2011 etc. if you like to add some more information. License number isn't normally shown on a CV but you can provide a copy of your certificate or direct potential employers to the ITIL successful candidate register if you like.

    Kind regards

    Claire
