The book I wrote on ITIL V3 is now outdated. But there’s a new 2011 edition out now! Read below for more information.
In 2009, I wrote a book called ITIL V3 Foundation Exam Video Mentor which was published by Pearson IT Certification in early 2010. It is a combined book and DVD set which contains hours of instructor-led presentations providing both foundational reinforcement of exam topics as well as exam preparation tips and sample questions based on the ITIL V3 exam syllabus that was current at the time of publication.
In July of 2011, ITIL V3 was replaced with a newer version casually called “ITIL 2011″ which is slightly different than ITIL V3. All exams as of January 1, 2012 are based on this new ITIL 2011 material. Since my book/DVD set was published back in 2010, it naturally doesn’t include this new ITIL 2011 material, since that would require a time machine. :)
Though my book/DVD set is still available for purchase directly from the publisher as well as from booksellers like Amazon, that ITIL V3 book/DVD set is outdated and does not provide you all of the information necessary to pass the current exams. If you’re looking for a fun, easy-to-watch video to give you a nice ITIL overview, then definitely grab it! But if you are thinking about buying it to use to study for an exam, don’t do it. That would be like buying a book on Windows Vista to learn about Windows 7… they’re close, but not close enough. :)
(If you already purchased ITIL V3 Foundation Exam Video Mentor and are looking for the promised extra sample exam questions that I mentioned in that book Click here, m’dear. You’ll need the password from the book/DVD set to view it. Again, these “promised extra sample exam questions” are based on the old ITIL V3 2007-2010 exams, not the new ones.)
But wait! There’s news! There’s an new product that’s updated for ITIL 2011! Yay!
I am thrilled that my ITIL V3 Foundation Exam Video Mentor was in my publisher’s (Pearson IT Certification) Top 5 best-selling publications every month since its release. THANK YOU! And because of that, on January 5, 2015, I signed a contract with Pearson to create an updated version! This time it will be 100% streaming video only… no accompanying book. Don’t worry though; if you like having printed material to highlight and study from, I’ll make that available here on my website.
So… to buy the latest edition, head on over to Safari Books Online and start streaming!
My very best,
