    Hi, I can see what you are saying, having no experience but I'd still get it if I were in your position. For a lot of the bigger companies its a necessity. We were forced to get it in my company. Cheers, Jim

    The ITIL v3 Foundation is a good cert to have, the foundation cert is just that... a foundation. It does not require you to have experience with it as it introduces ITIL concepts/framework to you.

    Is it expensive to study and obtain?

    Depends what route you do. I studied with the CBTNuggets CD's, the "Passing your ITIL foundation exam: the official study aid" book and booked the exam with EXIN instead of ISEB (which was a few quid cheaper). I could have probably passed without the CBT course, but the material is dry. So minimum spend just under £150 :)

    Have a look at the material after your MCDST and see if you're still interested :)

    I am studying it at the moment very dry and boring but I think it is a good cert to do and would recommend it.
