  1. Extremely helpful .

  2. Thanks very useful... answer for 10 seems to be C, Fit for purpose=> Utility =>Functionality

    1. Yes Anonymous, your line of thinking is correct but the ability of a service to provide the functionality when required would qualify as "Availability". Fitness for a purpose is measured by how much use this service is, to the business. So, A is correct.

      Does this answer your Q?

    2. Great material. I will be taking the ITIL foundation V3. Any helpful resources you can provide to help me prepare for the exam would be appreciated.

  3. I am taking the exam on Monday any new questions available ?
