    What version of ITIL should i do... v2 or v3. Is there a specific reason for doing one over the other?

    What book/s should you buy for the v3 foundation exam?

    Same decision I had to make and I went for V3.

    Unless you're currently working in an ITIL environment under V2 and your employer indicates you need to do V2 then I'd opt for V3 on the basis of :

    a) It covers everything in V2 anyway and just adds more (i.e. breaks processes down further)

    b) It's coming in anyway

    c) If you do V2 then at some point you'll need to convert to V3

    As to study resources, mine were listed at the start of this thread and if you search you'll find plenty of other posts with their recommendations.

    V2 is going to be retired long before V3, you might as well save on some study time :)

    The stuff I used for the V3 exam was CBTNuggets & this book :)
