You are asking them

1 I have the V2 Service Manager's certificate which was the previous version before the latest - yet the certification is still valid

2- Liz has all the certification for v2 and teaches it both viathe book she co-authored for Foundation as well as other courses - intermediate

Why do you think this site is called the ITIL Community ?

Go to the official web site - google it as links are verboten here

Read up on ITIL

go to Wikipedia and do the same thing

There is a lot of good material at the following locations

British Computer Society

in regards ITIL and other related areas

No unlike technical certification where you can find dumps - not so legal - as well as free crap... the only documents you should use is the official material and they cost money

The foundation certification is the only course / exam that does not require sitting a course

All of the others - the intermediate upware - do require a course and the exam is part

Good news is that you can do virtual classrooms with specific trainig companies

And I have the Managers Certificate from before they put the V in ITIL.

95% of what a course is good for was done then. For later versions all it takes is reading the books, chatting a little and thinking.

So I'm not an authority on the texts, but I do know (and, more importantly, understand) a bit about ITSM which is the objective of ITSM practitioners, ITIL or not.
