ITIL General Overview

NPA24NPA24 Posts: 588Member ■■□□□□□□□□
I would like to share this information that has been gathered by various individuals in my company. I am sharing this information so others who want to pursue the ITIL certification would benefit from it and also learn its importance as a needed skill in IT management. Some of the information might be outdated but still useful. Most of the information is based on my studies for ITIL version 2. I'm sure I will be updating this as soon as I start studying for ITIL version 3.

Good luck everyone!!!

    Another useful site is www.freeitiltraining.com. It provides you with a detailed overview of the latest version of ITIL, aligned to a case study. There is also an 80 page download report you can keep.

    (disclosure: it's my organisation that launched it, but we hope it will be useful for everyone)

    Another book to be added to this thread is the Itil Foundation Exam Study Guide written by myself (Liz Gallacher) and Helen Morris. It covers the complete current syllabus, and contains many extra practice questions. Available from Amazon

    I've just written an article in conjunction with the ITIL owners, AXELOS, that answers some common training questions. I hope it's helpful.
