    I completely skipped over my ITIL Foundation because I assumed it wouldn’t count for much (as this is the easiest of the ITIL exams). For those that have been in the IT world for 6+ years, how much work is needed to study for this exam? Lets say, starting with the cybrary training videos, what would be other needed material? The last thing I want to do is read a dry/long book (like the pmp book). I also saw that there are 3 day classes for this exam…. But is that really necessary? Anybody that has taken the exam please give your input, as I am a comp security professional but want to get this exam knocked out also (I want to stay well rounded). Thanks in advance.

    Seems this exam is basic, if you read over the high level concepts/sections/modules. Knowing how ITIL phrases something (or use one of their million acronyms for for) will help you pass. Also, taking what you have learned in the past, at work, and making sure its really what you “should be doing” … at least so says ITIL, hence it being an ITIL exam.

    I really wasn’t planning on getting the cert (taking this class was my total 100% my goal – 2 hours of learning, thanks for the media) but now considering sitting for it, as the material itself makes sense. Many companies do not have the fundamentals (or are lacking important fundamentals) – ITIL has laid out the important basics in the simplest.

    So, for those who have taken the exam, and for any who have knowledge; is it true that you can get a basic job with just the ITIL certification alone?

    ^That doesn’t really say a lot though. If your in a 1.5k+ company, a lot of the procedures are ITIL based. Small companies create their own rules – As the company grows, it gets evolved off ITIL. The foundation of ITIL is the basic structure. Any company that is larger, follows those rules, as a basic practice. They then create special operational procedures because of their sector.

    I asked a few people, that come from bigger companies, and they said 50%+ of the exam is related to basic foundational material. Knowing how to answer the “question formatted” questions is the harder part.

    When I took it a few years ago there were 42 questions and I got a 36. That was after a 3 day bootcamp. I think the important thing is to grasp the concepts. Good luck I’m sure you’ll do fine if you study it’s straightforward and not deceptive like some vendor tests I know 🙂

    Have to look at costs also; who’s paying.

    It’s pretty straightforward to search on Google for a sample ITIL Foundation exam!
