Finally took the exam today (online-proctored on PeopleCert) after taking training up to Expert Level last fall. icon_cool.gif Scored 36/40.

I used CBT Nuggets training videos to refresh on some topics/definitions but the exam was pretty easy.

    Hey man, congrats on the pass.

    How long were you studying for? And what practice exams did you use for this, if any?

    Cheers.

    Thanks! I studied for about a day and finished the exam in under 20 minutes. No practice exams - just reviewed process diagrams.

    Congratulations.

    So how many hours total did you study for this exam?
  • fuz1onfuz1on Posts: 961Member ■■■■□□□□□□
    someperson49 - thanks!

    Probably around 8 hours watching CBT Nuggets and taking notes on the lifecycle (2 hrs the night before and 6 hrs the day of). I had to take breaks since the material can be pretty dry at times.

    I too was able to knock this over a few months back, using primarily the CBT Nuggets series and also a bit of common sense lol was certainly one of the easier exams

    niles312 - thanks. yup - it doesn't hurt that i worked in large enterprise that used ITIL/ITSM processes.

    Nice! Congrats! I'm going for Intermediate/Expert now since I finished the coursework. Groupon has accredited training for $99 (I used GoGoTraining in Arizona) if you need it.

    Interesting, didnt know you could do the whole course for $99, although I am in the UK. Will you do the exams through EXIN anywhere then?

    My focus will be MS certs, but I was thinking of doing the Prince2 Exams next year, maybe ITIL after that.

    Thanks

    I took training online from two different places (GoGoTraining and CareerAcademy) which were both pretty affordable. I'm not sure about when/where I'm going to take the exams yet - either online through EXIN or, hopefully, get a good deal on a voucher for a Pearson Vue location.

    Congrats.
    Best of luck to your future carrier.
    If possible do one more course like ITIL intermediate.

    By the way Fuz1on, is there a difference in doing it from the office or at home than going to a test center?
