ITIL v3 Foundation

I just had my ITIL v3 Foundation certification yesterday and I passed with flying colors (YAY!). The Foundation exam is quite easy, basically, you just need to attend the training and go over the study materials thoroughly a couple of times.

ITIL v3 (IT Infrastructure Library) is accepted worldwide as the most effective and efficient framework for managing and controlling the quality and costs of delivering IT services and keeping them aligned with business needs and ever changing business direction.

While studying, I stumbled upon some learning aids created by Marco Cattaneo from Charles Sturt University, Australia. At first I was a bit reticent with them, but he manages to explain the concepts fairly well and proved to be of invaluable assistance to me considering I did not attend the ITIL v3 Foundation training.

  1. Salut,

    quick questions. eu invat in momentul de fata pentru itil foundations insa am 6 manuale din care invat. 1 – service lifecycle introduction + 5 pe service strategy, design, operation, transition si continual service improvement. intrebare mea e daca trebuie parcurse toate 6 sau doar 1 introduction in care se vorbeste despre fiecare dintre cele 5 mentionate mai sus.

    any advice is more than appreciated.


    • Pentru foundation, primul manual e de ajuns. Urmatoarele sunt pentru restul examenelor. In principiu eu am frunzarit o tura manualul ala, si am bagat la cap din video-uri.
