    Hi all

    You can see my post in the New memebers section to get my background but I'm basically on a tight (non-existant) budget to try to get some paper qualifications on my CV to back up my 10 years in IT.

    I'm looking at the new ITIL v3 Foundation exam as one means and have purchased :

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/ITIL-Founda...=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1213600371&sr=8-2

    from Amazon. This course also allows you to connect to an online course at www.theartofservice.com .

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience of this and whether it was helpful in passing the exam. If not, what else do I need to read (bearing the no budget in mind) ?

    Thanks guys

    That was the book I was going to get, however I heard from my suppliers that this book is end of line and they couldn't get it (we, as in "work", don't have an account with Amazon).

    This is the book that I used, as well as this CBT.

    Thanks for that Ken.

    I'll see how it goes with what I've got and may have to try to scrape up the dosh for some sort of course if I fail. :(

    Prepared to be bored on this course (regardless of self-study or class based) :lol: The only part of the ITIL I liked (dare I say enjoyed) was the security part :)

    LMAO! The only part I liked was when the trainer said we'd finished... :twisted:
