January 22nd, 2015 in TSHOOT v2 Go to comments

This article is devoted for candidates who took the TSHOOT exam to share their experience. Please tell us what are your materials, the way you learned, your feeling and experience after taking the TSHOOT v2.0 exam… But please DO NOT share any information about the detail of the exam or your personal information, your score, exam date and location, your email…

Your posts are warmly welcome!

Exam’s Structure:

+ Some Multiple choice & drag drop questions
+ 1 Simlet
+ 12 lab-sim Questions with the same network topology (12 troubleshooting tickets or you can call it one “big” question). Each lab-sim is called a ticket and you can solve them in any order you like.

Topics of the lab-sims:

1- IPv6
3- OSPFv3
4- Frame Relay
5- GRE
6- EtherChannel
7- RIPng
9- Redistribution
10- NTP
11- NAT
12- BGP
13- HSRP
14- STP
15- DHCP

The problems are rather simple. For example wrong IP assignment, disable or enable a command, authentication…

In each tickets you will have to answers three types of questions:

+ Which device causes problem
+ Which technology is used
+ How to fix it

When you press Done to finish each case, you can’t go back.

A demo of the TSHOOT Exam can be found at: http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le2/le37/le10/tshoot_demo.html


+ In the new TSHOOTv2, you cannnot use the “Abort” button anymore. Therefore you cannot check the configuration of another ticket before completing the current ticket.

+ We have gathered many questions about TSHOOT exam and posted them at TSHOOT FAQs & Tips, surely you will find useful information about the TSHOOT exam there!

Below are the topologies of the real TSHOOT exam, you are allowed to study these topologies before taking the exam. It surely saves you some invaluable time when sitting in the exam room (Thanks rrg for sharing this).

IPv6 Layer 3 Topology

    hello, I passed today with 9xx

    67% in VPN Technologies which is the section of GRE Packet D&D.
    I answered (wrong):
    1. Data
    2. Original source IP
    3. GRE Header
    4. Source tunnel IP header

    All others questions and simlets ok, there were 2 tickets with slightly different answers.

    Passed the Exam few hours (9xx/1000). The premium account helped me a lot. All the tickets, MCQ, and simnet (BGP) are exactly the same. I advice to practice the labs over and over again to master the typologies and the problems with each tickets. Go to Page 308 and See the Tipu Pasha’s Comment.

    Good Luck!
