Hi

I'm charting my course to take a few ITIL exams. The ITIL-Foundation I'm doing in a another few weeks. I'd like to take the Service Strategy Exam.

Do I have to have accredited training as a prerequisite? Or can I study on my own for the exam? I thought all I had to have is the ITIL-F certification.

"In order to complete the Intermediate level, you need to attend training run by one of our Accredited Training Organizations. You cannot self-study and then take the examinations."

Any certification beyond the Foundation level has a requirement that you take their training.  There are a number of training organizations, and more than one source for exams.  (Link above is to Axelos, the current owner of ITIL.)  When I was looking at certification/training beyond the foundation level, they all consistently indicated that training was a requirement above the foundation level.  The organization has changed since then, so I can't find the source documentation I confirmed with back then... but it appears with some certainty that the policy hasn't changed.  All my old links to www.itil.co.uk redirect to Axelos now.)

If I may...ask you one another thing

Is there any difference between

EX0-001 ITIL Foundation (syllabus 2011) Exam
EX0-101 ITIL Foundation v.3 & ITIL Foundation
EX0-117 ITIL Foundation (syllabus 2011)

A friend sent me some sample questions to help me, but they all have different "EX0" numbers

The EX0 means they are the versions of the exam offered by Exin, through Prometric testing centers.  I believe all three are different versions of the same test.  When I took the exam about two years ago, the version was EX0-117.  EX0-001 is the currently offered version.  Unfortunately I don't know if EX0-101 was older or newer than EX0-117.  (But again, EX0-001 is the one currently offered from Prometric.)

when I see this offered by a vendor,  and it says (EXIN) EXO-117 I'm not sure if I should purchase it or not.

V3 refers to the current (as of right now) edition of ITIL, using the 2011 revision of ITIL.  V2 was significantly different, and I don't know know what version one looked like.  Like I mentioned, the 117 version of the Exin test is the one I took two years ago.  The syllabus of the material will be the same to the current version, but I don't know the details of the difference between 117 and 001.  (I can't really give recommendations on practice exams either.  I use one book to study, and looked through a loaner copy of the ITIL books.)
Whether you should purchase or not, I would think would depend on whether they are giving you a significant discount... especially since you already have three sets of sample questions from a friend.
