The TSHOOT 300-135 (TSHOOT v2.0) exam has been used to replace the old TSHOOT 642-832 exam so this article is devoted for candidates who took this exam sharing their experience. Please tell with 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 questions
+ Some Simlets
+ 13 lab-sim Questions with the same network topology (13 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).

IPv4 Layer 3 Topology


IPv6 Layer 3 Topology


Layer 2-3 Topology

    hi, last week i passed Tshoot with full mark 1000/1000 , it was so easy
    the same tickets in networktut 12 T 6Q 1LAP
    When you write the command in lap , if you want to get full mark in the lap write show run command to make sure that everything has changed . if there is no change write the command again then everything will be changed
    this is exactly what happened with me in the exam i wrote the command then i wrote show run
    one of the command did not change , i wrote the command again . it worked
    good luck all

    I took the exam twice. I passed today with 1000/1000.

    Don’t trust the pings and traceroutes 100%. In the actual exam some pings and traceroutes work, but shouldn’t. For example, if using the traceroute from DSW1, the answer should be an issue with ASW1, but the actual issue was with DSW1. The same goes for the IPV6 tickets. I was able to ping from R1 thru R4, but the issue was with R2.

    My suggestion would be to use the pings and traceroutes to narrow down the search, but you need to understand all of the discrepancies for each ticket. Read the configs (show run).

    All of the study information is in the premium membership.

    A big thank you to network tut and all of the users that contributed information!

    He? How can you ping from R1 to R4 by IPv6 when there is no neighborship with R2?

    Hi All

    Ping Plan can be from Client 1 Yes No No No Yes Yes No No Yes Yes Yes No
    ———— ———– ——— ——-
    R1 (TKT-3) R1 (TKT-1) R4 (TKT-11) DSW1 (TKT-6)
    R1 (TKT-4) R4 (TKT-14) ASW1 (TKT-7)
    R1 (TKT-5) ASW1 (TKT-8)
    ASW1 (TKT-9)

    Catagory 1 = 3 Tickets on R1
    Catagory 2 = 1 Ticket on R1
    Catagory 3 = 2 Tickets on R4
    Catagory 4 = 4 Tickets and All tickets on switches (1 on DSW1 and 3 on ASW1)

    10 In total Above
    3 Tickets are suspended (HSRP, DHCP,EIGRP AS 1)
    3 Tickets for IPV6

    Be Carefull In exam alwasy ping from client 1 if you can ping tickets is for IPV6 topology and if you can not then try above ping plan to find trouble and one more and most important advice for Ticket 6 on DSW1 (see the full list as VLAN ACL/PORT ACL option you must have to find by scroll the options down I had nearly missed it but its there

    1 = OSPF Authetication on R1 (do show ip ospf neighbout to confirma this TT)
    2 = *Suspended for exam HSRP on DSW1
    3 = BGP on R1 wrong IP address (show ip bgp neighbour summary to confirm this TT)
    4 = NAT on R1 (Can confirm by doing show ip nat translation to confirm this TT)
    5 = R1 ACL (Show run confirm this TT) show access-list wil not work in exam
    6 = VLAN FIL (Show run confirm this TT) show access-list wil not work in exam
    7 = Port security ( show port-security to confirm this TT)
    8 = SW VLAN 10 (show vlan to confirm this TT)
    9 = SW Trunk (show interface trunk to confirm this TT)
    10 = *Suspended for exam EIGRP AS 1 to 10
    11 = OSPF to EIGRP (shold be OSPF->EIGRP) not OSPF_to_EIGRP
    12 = IPV6 OSPF (show run R2,R3,R4) but in this you can also do show IPV6 OSPF Nei to check
    13 = *Suspended for Exam DHCP (thats why in exam we have client IP already there)
    14 = EIG PASS ( show ip eig nei to confirm this TT)
    15 = IPV6 GRE (show ip int brief on R3 and see tunnel interfece in down to confirm this TT)
    16 = IPV6 RIP ( show run R2,R3,R4) ]

    Make that above ping pland its hardly will take 2 minutes and keep X all TT you already have in Exam and believe me after 5 ot 10 Tickets you deal with rest of TT very quickly even if you take long time to solve initial ticket

    careful for TT 6 (make sure to scroll to find the right answer and dont get confust for IPV4 or IPV6 tickets (if you can pingf form clietns its V6 otherewist its V4

    Best of luck all

    @Hoekie, you are right, cannot ping R1 to R4 by IPv6 address, but you can ping by IPv4 address.
    You can also ping from Client 1 to Webserver in IPv6 tickets using IPv4 address.

    @CS man, the ping and traceroute do not work correctly? this is the best tool for discovery wich router/switch haves the problem… i believe that dsw1 works trace and ping perfectly in real exam…

    Oké, you can ping with a IPv4 address, but the problem is, can’t ping loopback IPv6 address of … So ping with IPv6 address and not IPv4.

    Hi Guys,

    Glad to find so much info about the exam here. Just got a couple of doubts, if someone could clarify would be really helpful.
    1. Do we need to save the config to the startup config after completing the BGP Lab.
    2. Are the MCQ given here same as in the exam, if not where can I get the dumps.

    Hi All,
    I just passed the exam,
    6MQ 12 TT and 1 BGP lap.

    In Exam all scenarios was the same, Even for IPv6, I just recognized IPV6 from IPV4 that all ping are ok, so when you ping the following: –>ok–>ok–>ok–>ok

    so it is IPV6 ticket

    Good luck
    Thanks networktut

    Failed yesterday. Dont trust all the ping and traceroute as i cant ping some ip and when certain ticket i can ping but the answer is wrong. Need to understand Metodo method clearly before going to exam. I am rushing without reading the metodo method. http://www.networktut.com/download/TSHOOT_Metodo.pdf . After failed then i realized metodo method is the way to pass.
