ITIL® Foundation course is an entry-level certification exam that showcases your knowledge of the key concepts as well as the practices of the ITIL® framework. It has been defined in the ITIL® 4 foundation book, and it serves as the prerequisite if you are thinking of pursuing any further certification on the ITIL® methodology. So gear yourself up, as in this article we will share with you a few tips that are guaranteed to help you get through the ITIL® Foundation certification exam.
Make Sure to Read around the Topic before You Start -
Once you hit the rabbit hole of the internet, you will find plenty of sources that have relevant and interesting topics. For instance, the AXELOS content hub, and the free research articles on the page of Knowledgehut. Make sure that you dig in deep in these matters and find what works for you before you start your ITIL® foundation course training.
Make Sure That You Ask Plenty of Questions During Your Course -
Do not be shy or afraid of asking as many questions as you can. Do not shy away from asking again if it is still unclear. Having a thorough understanding of the concepts and the process helps you to get a clear view of the questions that may otherwise confuse you in the exams.
And do not worry if you do not grasp any concept straightaway. At times the concept will get clearer as more classes are taken. And at times, the concepts are not covered until the very end.
Take as Much Notes as You Can -
Make sure that you take a lot of notes, whether it is a topic that you find hard to understand or a topic that is easier to understand. This will help you get a clear knowledge of the concept. Not only that but it helps to flag up ideas on concepts that you have not yet thoroughly grasped.
Make Sure That You Learn from Real Life Examples -
It is very likely that your teacher will be using real-life examples baked into your workplace to help you understand the concept better. And if not, do not be afraid to ask your teacher about how the ITIL® 4 values and practices can come in handy in your work experience. Not only that but speaking about your own experience will encourage other candidates to ask about theirs and get a better understanding as well. However, remember that in the ITIL® exam you will have to ask questions not from your personal experience, but from the ITIL® perspective.
Every single ITIL® certification has seen thousands of certificates awarded worldwide. Make sure that you are well prepared for the exam. And even if you find a few questions to be difficult, do not get disheartened. The questions in the exam are designed to test your knowledge of the ITIL® methodology and utilize it properly.
