It is yet to be finalized how the “Advanced Level” can be achieved. To achieve Expert status. The figure below demonstrates the possible pathways that you could take to achieve the Expert status. ending in the possible attainment of “Expert Status”. This new path encompasses all the new v3 Programs. but is expected to be based on demonstration of practical experience in ITIL and IT Service Management.3 ITIL® v3 Certification Pathway Since the launch of ITIL v3 in July 2007.
(Please check with your Accredited Examination Centre for more information on this). 5 Exam Prerequisites Accredited Foundation training is strongly recommended but not a Prerequisite. It is possible to do a paper based or a web based exam.4 Exam Specifics The APMG ITIL® v3 Foundation Bridging exam is: o Multiple choice exam o 30 minutes in length o 20 questions o Pass mark is 13/20 or 65% o Closed book exam o Only 1 answer out of 4 possible answers is correct. 5 Copyright The Art of Service .
generally 1/3 of the questions are basic content – memorizing definitions and terminology… 1/3 tests your understanding of the concepts. However to help you maximize your understanding of the exam process. you can pass the exam. with a reasonable amount of study. So.Ignore the singular or plural use of words. You need 13/20 to pass. If you break down the style of questions. o Plural schmural…. SD. with 4 possible answers. . Because the answer selections may contain answers which has 1 answer (eg Service Strategy). To an extent they are correct… IF you have done your study and understand the concepts you should get through the exam. activity/activities Copyright The Art of Service 6 .6 Exam Hints WE STRONGLY ADVISE THAT YOU REVIEW YOUR ITIL V2 FOUNDATION MATERIAL. APMG says that there are “no trick” questions. Identify the key words and use this to select your answer. The remaining 1/3 of the questions are aimed much more at a synthesis/application level to really test your understanding. these are some important hints that I have learnt and teach my students when preparing for the exam: o The most obvious is “read the question carefully”. EVEN THOUGH V2 CONTENT MAY NOT BE COVERED IN YOUR TRAINING PROGRAM THEY MAY ASK YOU QUESTIONS RELATED TO V2 PROCESSES! (and as such we have included a whole range of practice exam questions) As stated earlier – there are 20 multiple-choice questions. They are very specific about the wording of the question and what it is they are wanting. or more than 1 (eg SS. ST). To maintain ambiguity so as not to “give the answer away” they will mix and match the singular/plural…… eg is/are.
Which are relevant/correct for the question.a. When you see these.4…. X if you don’t. The word “primary” implies that the answer will be just “one” process. phase will do “it”. whatever. “All…every” .b. “Primary” – APMG likes to use this word. try and identify which contains more. it is likely that there will be more than 1 answer that is correct… you need to choose the “more/most correct”. b) 1. Therefore to help us deliver IT. If you see a response/question which contains either of these 2 words. – APMG likes to use the “which is correct…. When you get down to 2 possible responses. Look for the “allencompassing” answer. And the answer response will be for example – a) -1.o 1.More and more questions are appearing in the mock exams which seem to have the structure of consider the following (4) statements. I advise you physically mark these on the exam paper. You should have time. you need to consider these to apply to….These 2 words seems to trip my participants more than any other.ALL/EVERY possible scenario.c. If you are stuck – leave it and go back to the question at the end.d… . technology should help us as much as possible… o o o o o 7 Copyright The Art of Service .3. It is unlikely that primary means that more than 1 process.2. “Technology” – if you have a question that asks what would technology help?

Then match your selections to the answer. tick if you agree. phase.availability management is responsible for ALL targets in SLA… NO – because there are many more targets in an SLA than just availability targets… be careful! Correct vs more Correct….
the focus of the course and exam is an awareness level. o Copyright The Art of Service 8 . Remember – at this level. with a basic understanding of the concepts and terminology of the ITIL v3 Service Lifecycle.o “Tools” – same as technology – Tools are there to make our job easier and to ensure consistency and repeatability as well as ensuring standards and conventions are followed – so it would make sense that Tools could help all of the above….
Once you get to the bottom.7 The Art of Service Objective Tree This Objective Tree is a very useful tool for understanding and “tunneling” down into how ITSM can contribute to achieving a corporate objective. This helps us to better understand how the Service Lifecycle can contribute to achieving the Business objectives The aim of the Objective tree is to walk down the tree to understand HOW each level of the organization is assisted in achieving their objective by receiving support from the level below. you then walk back up the tree. giving example of WHY each would be of benefit to the one above in achieving its objectives.

To explain some of the key concepts I will use an analogy that most (food lovers) will understand.1 Creating Service Value Analogy The official definition of a Service is “a means of delivering value to Customers by facilitating outcomes customers want to achieve without the ownership of specific costs or risks”.
