    > What's the cost associated with the exam
    In the US, it's $159 US.

    > can I take it online-at home
    Yes, but I believe it costs more (add an extra $20US) to take it at home, and there are some somewhat stiffer requirements.  

    > how many questions

    > what's the passisng score

    > multiple choice
    I believe so, yes.

    > what's the best way to study for the exam and knowledge
    Unfortunately there isn't a 'best' way, there's only a best way for you.  Personally, I have an easier time picking up material from books, so I'm self studying.  There are a lot of organizations who offer training classes, and there are a lot of other training materials.  The normal IT advise applies here -- don't use brain dumps, and try to use more than a single source for the material.

    Accepted Solution

    EX0-117 -- It's the 2011 ITIL Foundation.  (The older version is EX0-101, which is 2007... I don't believe you can take the older version any longer, but I could be wrong on that.)
