    Hi all.

    Sitting my v3 Foundation exam at 1430 today. Me and six colleagues have just done an onsite 2 1/2 day instructor led course with plenty of sample papers thrown in for good measure but I still don't feel ready to sit the exam. Oh well, tough luck I guess as its mandatory.

    Wish me luck!!

    I felt very unsure when I sat mine despite doing quite a few practice papers. Good luck :biggrin

    Thanks for the kind comments guys.

    Mixed feelings post-exam TBH Relieved that the exam is over, but slightly worried when colleagues come out saying 'What did you get for Qx?' and my answers not tallying with what they had put. Don't worry, there's no NDA so we weren't breaking any rules! There are two ways of looking at this of course, I could be right and they could be wrong but only time will tell I guess.

    The training provider was Parity and the trainer was an Ex IT Ops. Manager with mutli-decade experience before he went into delivering ITIL Training. He'd told us that he'd delivered ITIL Foundation V1 and V2 then did the Bridging course to get to V3 but failed this by 1 mark which didn't exactly inspire confidence. He subsequently passed it of course!
    He also kept illustrating the course material by referring to his own experiences working as an Op's Manager and how they had managed the Service Life-Cycle (BT, RBoS to name but two companies he'd worked for) but again, not that useful as most companies take the ITIL framework and customise it to their own requirements, just like my company does.

    Anyway, results are expected next week so not too long to wait and I'll let someone have my text books assuming I passed it (and that somebody wants them!!)
    Cheers for reading,

    Well, I've just got my ITIL v3 Foundation result back and I passed with a 33 out of 40. I have to say that this was the first exam in a long time where I left the exam room without a clue as to whether I'd passed or failed. ISEB managed to spell my name incorrectly on the certificate too so that will have to be corrected.

    Cheers for reading,

    well done on the pass, the ITIL v3 is a dull but fast becoming necessary step on the certification ladder!
