I passed the 2011 Foundation exam last week. It was pretty straight-forward. I read the Brady Orand book and the corresponding questions and answers (both on Kindle) and took the practice test on the official ITIL site too. I scored 38/40 and it only took around 20 minutes. I was nervouse as I always am for these tests but it worked out well.

    Congratulations! Do you plan to take any further ITIL training, or is Foundation going to meet your needs?

    Foundation is all I will be attempting right now. It was a suggested cert for a customer.

    @ Claire : - Hi Claire is there a new version of the ITIL Coming out anytime this year - The last time i passed the ITIL ( V2 ) the V3 was out which was superseeded by the ITIL 2011 - so i am kinda of prolonging myself in doing this foundation cert again as i waiting for a new version to come out ITIL .

    Hi Dr IT

    There are no plans for a new version of ITIL communicated to us as training providers. I think you are safe to take the foundation cert now icon_smile.gif

    Congratulations! icon_thumright.gif

    I took the Foundation exam on Monday, and I was really surprised to find that it just breezed on by in about 20 minutes as well.

    @cgrimaldo: I gave a run-down of my study-material in this thread:

    Study Materials Used: -

    It took about a week of studying: I took some good notes and read through the book a couple of times over to nail down the terms and concepts. Michael Shannon does a good job of laying out the concepts, really gives you a clear picture of the service lifecycle and how the different parts fit together. The real challenge is memorizing the different steps and learning names and brand-new acronyms to add to our already-impressive list of IT terms.
