    I have had the same experiences and thus why now I plan out what I need to configure on the white board before I do it. I have found I have really screwed myself on time trying to correct config the sim may not allow you to do.

    Good luck to ya man! And wow I didn't realize how cheap the Chris Bryant Stuff is, I guess i'll snag it up for my final review. Can't hurt.

    I look forward to seeing your test results!

    Update on my actual category scores as I found the paper:

    Infrastructure Services: 75%

    Hmm...


    I'm pretty bad at math so I could be wrong, but I think the percentage comes out to this if my math is correct;

    Topics % Exam Content
    Layer 2 Technologies 65%
    Infrastructure Security 20%
    Infrastructure Services 15%

    80% 0f 65% = 52%
    92% of 20% = 18.4%
    75% of 15% = 11.25%
    Total = 81.65%

    Passing score = 790 out of 900
    Passing score in percentage = 87.7%


    But it looks like you should have no issue if you mainly work on L2 Technologies, do a quick review on Infra. security, and work little bit on the Infra. services.

    Those numbers make sense--thanks. I'm close.

    So close, in fact, I decided to reschedule the exam a week early for tomorrow at 2pm PST.

    I feel like I polished up my weak points and another week or so may burn me out. So let's bring home the cheddar this time!

    Guys and Gals--

    Happy to report that I PASSED! I knocked it out of the park this time around, really brushed up on what I thought were my weak points.

    We're on to T-Shoot.

    I have been watching the T-Shoot Exam Hands-on with Keith Barker. Also, I'm studying more of my route notes because i took that one over a month or two ago. I imagine looking at the T-shoot topology and writing down possible fault scenarios will help keep me fresh.

    I've heard of people drawing the T-shoot toplogy over and over until they were able to memorize. So maybe I can try that.

    Do you have IOU or VIRL? You can just build the topology yourself, I think it will help to commit to memory better that way and you can do a quick review of how to set up Portchannels, OSPF, EIGRP,RIPng, DHCP, NAT, Redistribution, BGP, the Tunnel, etc. It's really a simple exam if you aren't rusty with labbing and are familiar with the topology.

    I don't have either. Having IOU would be nice to work with.

    I have the CsR1000v and tried to boot that in EsXi without success. I keep getting an error about it unable to work in a 64-bit environment and virtualization issues, regardless that the settings are enabled on my Intel processor for vt, etc.

    I'm feeling really good and prepared, so I rescheduled T-shoot for tomorrow, noon PST.

    Good luck man!

    Check out unetlab. It supports IOU and a bunch of other stuff as well. Quite a pain in the neck to set up but once you do it's pretty nice.

    Great work so far! Get it knocked out! TSHOOT scares me (I want to think it shouldn't) since I've been removed from my Route pass almost 2 years. I look forward to hearing of your pass on TSHOOT soon!

    Default CCNP R&S Earned

    Thanks for all of the support, everyone!

    I passed T-shoot, and passed it well! It was a fun exam, like others have echoed. Not very difficult since Cisco made the topology public, which saves tons of time learning the setup.

    Now that i've earned my CCNP, I want to consider diving into CCIE, knowing the monumental task ahead; but, not before getting advice from the experts.

    Best,
