Passed ITIL foundations v3

Hello!

Just wanted to post that I passed the ITIL foundations with a 90%. I studied for 3 days, day 1 I watched the CBT Nuggets course, I enjoyed this course immensely, day 2 I read Liz Gallacher's book which was great reinforcement material. Day 3 I did all the practice tests that I could and went over notes.

I must admit I found the material a little dry, but good to know. I do not plan on any additional ITIL certifications at this time, but who knows what the future holds. I found the test quite expensive at $223 through Pearson Vue but at least it does not expire (although I expect employers to expect v4 once it is announced).

    Congrats!

    I'm preparing to write my very 1st cert too and hoping to get it done on Friday and I'm using Liz and Helen's book plus cbt nugget.

    What time of questions do the exam have? are they situation base or just definitions?

    ITIL does not have versions anymore, the latest version is ITIL 2011 or just ITIL.

    The questions were mostly straight forward, the online practice tests gave a good feel for it, I would say a little situation based and mostly questions understanding the different life cycles. It took my 18 minutes to complete exam.

    You can book the ITIL at any time, take it any time and you can take it from your home. No reason not to take it.

    Congrats! So I just wanted to clear this up, is it the ITILv3 Foundations or just ITIL Foundations? I am looking to take this too since it doesn't not expire as well makes it more appealing.

    The 2007 version was called ITIL Foundation v3 or simply ITIL v3. The current version is ITIL 2011 but they did not keep the versioning going so the current one is just called ITIL Foundation.
