Prerequisites for the Exin ITSM20ASB include the attainment of at least two prior certifications at the practitioner or intermediate levels in the Exin ITIL classification. Each exam in this category confers a certification upon successful completion, as does the ITSM20ASB exam, which means that by the time you best your Associate Bridget of ITSM certification exam, you’ll have achieved at least three credentials for building your reputation and expertise in your field of focus.
Though hands on experience and application of Exin ITSM knowledge in your everyday work duties can certainly contribute to your success on the ITSM20ASB exam, though nothing negates the need for focused study and exam prep. To ensure you pass your ITSM20ASB on the first attempt, you’ll need to employ a strict study plan and measure your knowledge attainment as you proceed with your studies.
There are 40 questions on the Exin ITSM20ASB exam, and you must earn a minimum score of 65 percent to pass. That’s the equivalent of at least 25 correct answers on your test.
Your study plans may include formal training courses, and Exin has a recommended list of training providers on its website. Self study, use of tutorials, and the ritual of periodically testing your progress through the completion of practice exams, are also recommended for success. Providers such as TestsLive.com offer exam engine resources and practice tests to round out your preparation activities.

While many older people remember the 1980s as the time punk got into the mainstream of American culture and threatened society, truth is that 1980s punk was as safe as today's pop music. 1980s punk legends like Billy Idol and Adam Ant seem to have used punk as a means of expression and to stay unique, rather than because they were giving their lives to the cause of punk.
Still, the 80s style of punk-rock is very unique in the history of punk, music, and fashion, and when looking for costumes, the 80s punk-rock star is a great one to go for.
How to Create the 80s Punk Fashion Look!
By Deni Griffiths
80s punk fashion was influenced greatly by celebrities in the music scene, such as The Ramones, Sex Pistols and Billy Idol. We also loved Vivyan from The Young Ones. This meant punk fashion had a wider, commercial audience.
Starting in the 70s, punk fashion was as a statement of rebellion. Clothes and outfits were personally designed by the individual, to enhance the rebellion statement.
Punk fashion is quite a broad cross section from glam punk to goth punk. Therefore, you should be able to grab a few characteristics from any area relating to 80s punk, and pull off this 80s fancy dress costume easily.
As the girls have heaps of fun choices when it comes to 80s fancy dress, 80s punk fashion, is a fun option for plenty of guys to get into the 80s spirit.
Most notably, you will be able to create a mohawk, spray paint your hair and wear studded belts.
Studs and spike will be the key. Look for these sorts of items when creating your punk look.
Oh yeah, and don't forget the safety pin! Where do you wear the safety pin? Well, as an earring, (Attach to a sleeper or similar - not directly through your ear lobe) or as a badge/accessory anywhere on your clothes. Rip an 80s retro tee shirt, and hold it back together with your safety pin.
- Denim jacket
- Leather jacket
- Ripped 80s tees
- Denim jeans
- Plaid mini skirt
- Plaid pants
- Denim mini skirt
- Doc Martin boots
- Black boots
- Studded belt

- Studded collar
- Large safety pin
- Large, dangley earring for the left ear
- Facial piercings
- Hair gel - Super strong
- Coloured hair spray paint
- Hair spray - Super strong
- Patches and badges for your jacket
- Studded or leather fingerless gloves
The good news, is that you can acquire and buy a lot of this gear cheap through the charity shops for the clothes, and online.
There are quite a few awesome 80s costumes, props and gear available for under $10.
Also, I highly recommend for you to browse through my site, via the link below, to get some cool visual ideas.
Deni Griffiths loved growing up in the 80s, and is thrilled to see 80s influences, sneak back into fashion. It has happened steadily over the naughties. As we move into the tweenie teenies, there is evidence in music clips, magazines and movies, that it's cool to have a fun and zany taste in fashion. Some commentators have put this down to the gloom of the financial crisis, and they may be right.
Also, most of you would have heard about 80s themed parties by now. They are very popular, probably due to the really cool music, and fancy dress fun you can have. Are you hosting or attending an 80s fancy dress party?

It was the decade of decadence. It was about glitz and glamour as well as baubles, bangles, and beads.
Elizabeth Taylor dropped in for Luke and Laura's wedding. Lady Diana became the People's Princess when she married Prince Charles. Nighttime soaps like Falcon Crest and Dynasty ruled television. President Ronald Reagan ruled the United States. Kevin Bacon danced his way across the screen in Footloose. Michael Milliken was the Junk Bond King. Cyndi Lauper showed her True Colors.
When did all this take place?
We can only be talking about that terrific time period the unforgettable eighties.
Here are twenty-one ways for you to verify that you're a part of (or belong in) the 1980's.
1. Breakdancing on the sidewalk looked like fun. Now it just looks like you might break something.
2. You can still recite dialogue from any movie starring Molly Ringwald.
3. You remember paying by the minute for long distance telephone service and you can still hear the tune from the phone company commercial when they encouraged you to "reach out reach out and touch someone."
4. You had at least one of the following: a My Little Pony, My Little Buddy, a Rubik's Cube, or something with a Pac-Man logo on it.
5. You first heard about the Human Genome Project in the science newsletter your teacher would pass out on Friday afternoons. You also remember how this was supposed to lead to the eradication of disease.
6. You were tuned in the exact moment that thousands of radio stations across the world played "We Are The World" at the exact same time. (Now, you're singing it!)
7. Your first album was a vinyl 33 and you laughed at your parents because they wanted to play 45's and 8-track tapes.
8. You know who Oliver North is and why he was in the news.
9. Someone on your street or neighborhood sent his or her life savings to a later discredited televangelist.
10. You laughed at the Golden Girls on television and now you wonder when you and you're friends became the Golden Girls.
11. You remember when Reagan met Gorbachev in Reykjavik, Iceland for a summit.
12. You and your friends made fun of the "I've fallen and I can't get up" lady. (The fictional woman was named Mrs. Fletcher and the product was the LifeCall emergency service.)|You and your friends made fun of the "Where's the beef?" commercials for Wendy's starring Clara Peller.}}}
13. You think the word "like" in an integral part of every sentence and should be used as often as possible. Like this, "She was like, like why would I say that, that's not like me at all. Like who does she think she is, you know? Like, really!"
14. You know there was only one way Dorothy on the Golden Girls could make Sophia behave. She simply said, "Shady Pines, Ma, Shady Pines."
15. You've actually tasted New Coke. Extra points if you wrote to Coca-Cola and insisted they bring back the original formula.
16. You remember a time before cable television and satellite channels.
17. Your parents were afraid you'd cut yourself putting on a snap bracelet.
18. You were inspired by
Geraldine Ferraro, the first (and as of this writing only in a major political party) female Vice Presidential candidate.
19. Renting horror movie sequels about Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, and Michael Myers took up a lot of your time.
20. If someone says, "I don't know," you automatically cringe expecting the green slime to mysteriously fall from the ceiling.
21. You wore out your thumbs playing video games on any or all of the following consoles: Atari, Intellivision, Sega, Nintendo, and Coleco.

While most of us look at the 1980s with nostalgia mixed with embarrassment, some people take the next step: Total Eclipse of the Heart has moved from a 1980s pop hit to a 2000s ironic karaoke hit, but in 2009 it went through the next transformation. Thanks to some new lyrics describing the video, it has become a YouTube hit. Here's one of the funniest videos I've seen: The Literal Video version of Total Eclipse of the Heart.

Bright And Happy 1980s FashionBy Pierre Perissel
When you think back to the 1980s they are many things that come to mind. There is something that is highlighted in our minds when we think back on the 1980s, and that is the 80s fashion.
It is very easy to recognize the fashion of the 1980s. This cannot be necessarily said of the fashion from the previous decades, because they share common elements that make them hard to distinguish from each other. It is safe to say that the 1980s fashion is in a completely distinct class of its own.
Even though one can still find boys that are wearing tube socks today, during the 1980s tube socks were the in thing to wear for girls and they wore it with almost any kind of outfit. However, just plain old tube socks were not enough during the 1980s. They had to be a ruffled to make the girls look really in step with fashion.
Movies played a huge part in influencing the 1980s fashion. Do you remember the movie Flashdance? That movie defined the new 1980s fashion look for young girls. Suddenly everyone had to wear large sweaters that exposed one shoulder with the gym bra strap exposed over the shoulder.
The girls also wore their hair in ponytails that sat on one side of the head.
Stonewashed jeans were the very big fashion item in the nineteen eighties. They had to be so skintight that you always wondered how people got into them in the first place. These jeans that were worn by men were accompanied by very colorful and decorative shirts or T-shirts.
Leg warmers were also very popular during the nineteen eighties. Once again, very well-known celebrities influenced the fashion choices of teenage girls through a music video that they made. Girls were wearing leg warmers with shorts, skirts, and many other types of pants.
As far as jewelry goes, one of the very popular items was the bracelet. And of course these could not be just any bracelets; they had to be flashy bangle bracelets. The more of these flashy bangles a girl could fit on her arm, the more hip she was.
The 1980s were truly a very colorful time. Remember the popular male fashion accessory, those very brightly colored shoelaces? Do you think anybody would dare wear them today without looking like a complete fool?
Hats decorated with flowers or other types of prints were also very popular during that time. That is one of the 1980s fashion trends that continued into the 90s.
Probably the one distinctive concept that would define 1980s fashion would be uniqueness.
