Passed ITIL foundation, next step

I have passed ITIL foundation exam yesterday and the score was 90%. I only studied for 4 days and after finishing reading I started the practice tests from "ITIL foundation exam study guide" by Liz and Helen. I found out that I was only getting around 70-75% on those tests. So, I was a bit worried whether to postpone the exam or not as my exam was the day after I finish studying my book. Then I decided to practice whatever practice exam I found online and that helped me a lot.

to Claire:

I tried to send you a DM but the system is not allowing me to do so. As you are COBIT 5 certified I have a question for you. The study guide ISACA mentions in their website is "COBIT 5: a business framework for the governance and management of enterprise IT" and the book I see is only 98 pages. I am a bit confused whether this is the only book to study. Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how to apporach this certification as I am planning to sit for it next.

Thank you.

    I got a 91% in about the same time frame without reading anything and no online tests. IMO, it's a common sense test.

    I googled and whatever I found online I took those. I spend half a day just to find out tests and practice those.

    Hi Renesa

    The COBIT 5 framework is 90+ pages and explains the COBIT concepts in detail. If you want to take the exam there are online and classroom courses available. I took the COBIT exam after taking a course - I haven't spoken to anyone who has self-studied but there might be others on the forum who have.
