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 answer 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).

IPv4 Layer 3 Topology


IPv6 Layer 3 Topology

    Those who got full marks recently, Please help me on Ticket 11 – Redistribution Route-map

    On R4:
    router eigrp 10
    redistribute ospf 1 route-map OSPF->EIGRP
    default-metric 100000 100 100 1 1500
    no auto-summary

    route-map OSPF->EIGRP deny 10
    match tag 90
    route-map OSPF->EIGRP deny 20
    set tag 110

    Ans1) R4
    Ans2) IPv4 Route Redistribution
    Ans3) Change the “route-map OSPF->EIGRP deny 20” to “route-map OSPF->EIGRP permit 20”

    The above is the configuration on this Site. But One Guy commented Under this ticket as ,
    router eigrp 10
    redistribute ospf 1 route-map OSPF->EIGRP

    router ospf 1
    network area 34
    redistribute eigrp 10 subnets EIGPR -> OSPF

    Problem is under router OSPF 1 -> EIGPR – EIGRP. P and R are swaped

    R & P is the only change we have to correct OR Permit 20 also ???

    Pls Guys !!! Pls Guys ! enlighten me .

    Any idea why the Ticket 16 answer 2 is not IPv6 route redistribution but IPv6 OSPF?

    I seen this ticket on the exam today and I got it wrong because I didn’t know I had to permit 20 on the EIGRP
