ITIL v4 Foundation Certification Exam Prep Resources & Tips


PMP

Welcome ITIL® Foundation Aspirants!

I am Edward. I passed the ITIL® Foundation Exam with a score of 95% (38/40).

To be frank, the ITIL® Foundation Exam is quite easy, even if you study for the exam while working full-time and have family obligations. I get ITIL® certified (and PMP®, PMI-ACP®…) while have to take care of my daily full-time job and my family with 3 kids.  It is doable and I will share my experience and tips below.(If you are PMP® or PMI-ACP®,  you will find this exam to be quite easy)

I studied for around 2 months, reading all sorts of reference books and doing sample ITIL® exam questions during my free time.

The complete record of my Certification experience, from understanding the ITIL® Qualification scheme, exploring online training options, studying and making my own study notes to passing the exam is listed underneath.

Wish you ITIL® Foundation success!

ITIL Has seen an update in 2019 from v3 to v4! You are highly advised to take the ITIL v4 Foundation Exam! All study materials mentioned below are based on the latest ITIL Foundation Exam version. Happy learning!

What is ITIL® Foundation and How to Obtain it?

Though the ITIL® Foundation exam is not too difficult, getting to know how to register and prepare for the ITIL® exam is somewhat more difficult.

That’s why I am posting my ITIL® Foundation journey on my blog to help fellow Aspirants to obtain the qualification easier. It is possible that you can pass the exam with a week or two of intense study.

After an in-depth research of the exam requirements, I have found out the good part is that there is NO education or experience requirements and the certification will never expire. Anyone wishing to get certified can do so with self-study. The not-so-good part is however it is very difficult to sit only the exam without buying the study course in a bundle.
