Buy a good book on the subject. I found the ITIL Foundation guide by Ernest Brewster a decent enough read. Reading through that, doing some online research and taking notes was enough to see me through the foundation exam last week. Some have called the Foundation Exam 'easy'. Maybe relative to the ...

Itil Newbie here....Excellent forum :)
