Share your TSHOOT v2.0 Experience

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).

IPv4 Layer 3 Topology


IPv6 Layer 3 Topology


Layer 2-3 Topology

    @networktut are you going to update the site with the information we are getting from jon

    Networktut still valid. Passed my exam with 870/1000. Ran low on time after spending too much time on BGP simlet. Question 11 was different and was very hard to figure out. There was a route map that denied traffic with tag 90 or 110.

    Multiple choice questions were all the same as on the site.

    I tried to follow Sam Strategy, but two or three of the tickets did not work with that. One was IPv6. The OSPF route-map did not work at all, and choosing the answer listed here was wrong.
    The MCQs and DnDs were the same.

    @NotNick, what do you mean with this statement ” The OSPF route-map did not work at all, and choosing the answer listed here was wrong.”

    Passed today 94x.
    thank you networktut!

    Becareful with BUGs: (I failed TT OSPF_to_EIGRP…..)

    TT IPv4 Redis, same bug. no ‘route-map OSPF_to_EIGRP’ on ‘sh run’ command but correct answer is still ‘route-map OSPF_to_EIGRP’

    TT NAT Inside, same bug also. ‘sh run’ shows s0/0/1 and s0/0/0 of R1 is tagged as ‘ip nat inside’ while ‘sh ip nat statistics’ shows both ports as ‘ip nat outside’. Trust ‘sh ip nat statistics’

    The MCQs and DnDs were the same.
