Note: The last day to take this TSHOOT 300-135 exam is February 23, 2020. After this day you have to take new Enterprise exams to get new CCNP Enterprise certification. If you want to find out more about the new exams please visit here.

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
+ 2 Simlets
+ 15 lab-sim Questions with the same network topology (15 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
2- OSPF
3- OSPFv3
4- Frame Relay
5- GRE
6- EtherChannel
7- RIPng
8- EIGRP
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

Note:

+ 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).

    @Rock n Roll

    What method did you use for ipv6 tickets? I read ping is not working from R1 going to R2 and R4?

  2. 123takbo
    June 17th, 2019

    @CCNP Approved

    Why are you pinging R1 for ipv6? Is ping from R1 not working using below commands?

    ping ipv6 2026 :: 1: 2 | ping ipv6 2026 :: 34: 2

  3. Rock n Roll
    June 17th, 2019

    @tuts – Yes Ping for ipv6 is not working.
    Use traceroute and it works perfectly fine.
    Also, for ipv6 i used sam strategy – “traceroute 2026::1:2” & “traceroute 2026::34:2” and it works well

  4. tuts
    June 17th, 2019

    @Rock n Roll

    Do you have updated sam strategy? in the current sam strategy, it’s still using ping for ipv6 tickets

  5. Rock n Roll
    June 18th, 2019

    @tuts- unfortunately i dont have it. Just replace ping with traceroute , thats it and it works like charm. If you see the reply that means the interface is reachable and if you see 30 lines of *** that means its not

  6. tuts
    June 18th, 2019

    @Rock n Roll

    I see, noted. Basically, you still recommend using SAM strategy for overall troubleshooting of tickets?

    I proved that my choice is not wrong. I successfully passed CCNP 300-101. Yes, my contribution is worth it.

    @tuts- I used SAM strategy for IPv6 only. I tried SAM strategy for IPv4 also and it works well but in my case for Ipv4 i had my own ways. If you have your own way than go with it else SAM is always an option

    @Rock n Roll for got to congrats you on passing. May i ask the following questions:

    1)Did you have to save the labs(BGP) when completed ?
    If so what command did you use? copy running-config startup-config? WR?

    2) Anything else you think we should study prior to the test?

    3) any other questions popped up?

    @ccnp RECErt –
    Thanks for the wishes

    1) I did not get BGP simlet

    2) just practice tickets thoroughly and network tut premium membership is more than enough enough.

    3) No, just that one MCQ from old syllabus

    @Rock n Roll –

    I am planning to reschedule my exam for tomorrow and I am very nervous. I am not sure if I should be delaying it but I want to finish it asap.
    I have few questions and would be super helpful if you can answer them

    1. Do you know anything about new ticket people were talking about while back?
    2. IPv6 ping doesnt work right so we can just use traceroute instead in exam?
    3. What all MCQs should I go through on premium membership? There are very few questions under faq section (including june, may, april updated pdfs) Should I finish long list of questions under MCQ option on left bar on premium?
    4. Is there anything new or different about existing tickets? Is SAM strategy enough?

    I would greatly appreciate your help. If you respond, I can be sure to give exam tom.

  31. Guest
    June 18th, 2019

    Hey guys,

    I took this test last week and failed by about 30 points. I took the 300-101 a week earlier and passed, thought I would just roll the dice and see what happened with the tshoot exam. I was just wondering if anyone knows if Cisco tracks candidate failed exams and changes your questions for the next attempt? Otherwise, theoretically you could keep sitting for an exam every 7 days until you passed (if you had the money).

  32. Passed Today Recertified
    June 18th, 2019

    I passed the exam today.

    I am not trying to scare anyone but when I was done I thought I had almost aced the test but barely passed

    I used the networktut premium there some old or different MQC I got but can not recall them.

    I clicked on the word Ticket and read the problem carefully to find out if ipv6 or client can not reach webserver

    I got

    HSRP SIM

    MCQ’s

    TICKETS
    1
    3
    4
    5
    6
    8
    9
    11A
    11B
    12
    14
    16

    I did not get the BGP sim

    I used the pinging from client 1 starting with 10.2.1.1 then 10.1.1.10 then 10.1.1.2 then 10.1.1.1 to where it stops and then looked for the problem, my strategy was to verify the problem from an adjacent device to make sure I got it correct

    I had a couple different MCQ questions sorry can not remember them.

    in the IPV6 tickets, the ping command did not seem to work correctly, I used the traceroute
    command and I used show ipv6 osp neighbor on the r1 r2 r3 r4 devices which worked well for me.

  34. bachan
    June 19th, 2019

    Can someone who has experienced this, please comment :

    For Ipv4:
    does “show ip route” , “show ip interface brief” , “show running-config” work in the exam for the tickets ?

    For Ipv6:
    I see here that “show ipv6 int brief” and ping may not work ?

    Please confirm.

    Thanks a million!..please.

    Hi! does the sequence of Trouble Tickets constant ? wherein in ticket 1 the technology used is OSPF ? or it might be different ?

    Please advise

    Thanks

  37. Finn
    June 19th, 2019

    Could you please tell me if DHCP is an issue in the tickets. Do the clients always have static IPs so that you only have to ping the routers (furthest away first, etc.)

    Well i took and unfortunately failed the CCNP t-shoot test today. I thought i was prepped and ready but unfortunately not the case.

    Network Principles 67%
    Layer 2 Technologies 76%
    Layer 3 Technologies 64%
    VPN Technologies 50%
    Infrastructure Security 50%
    Infrastructure Services 100%

    Here what i can remember:
    Majority of MCQ on here are on the test, a few (unable to remember) are also on their.

    I can ping for IPv6.

    Going to restudy and re-take when i can. Good luck
