    Default Failed TSHOOT by 1-2%

    Hi, today i was very disappointed and upset inside that i failed the TSHOOT exam that i'll be honest expected to passed based off comments that it is much easier than the ROUTE and SWITCH exams, both of which i have passed.
    I thought i did quite well on all the lab and the one sim question, all of which i got working except for 1 lab question that i could not for the life of me figure out why a certain ping was not working, i don't know how much detail i can go into but suffice to say i checked EVERYTHING i thought! access lists, routing tables, vlan access maps, NAT! Very bizarre and there where 2 multiple choice questions that where totally out of place that threw me off to, still i held out hope that i might sneak by given that i figured out the rest
    I'm nervous i'll fail it again now and it feels like you have to almost not screw up on anything to pass this one, i heard it was the easiest of the 3 but not from my experience! Seems like SWITCH has been the easiest for me so far.

    You can try drawing out the scenario from what you remember and then work it in a home lab to see what you can break to replicate what you saw. Another option is the Boson Pre-Test. As far as the non-Ticket questions; you should research those and find the answers in Cisco docs. Those are easy points on your 2nd attempt, if you get lucky and get the same questions again.

    I was going to take TSHOOT today after passing ROUTE last week, but held off after I wasn't as strong on the Boson Pre-Test as I would have liked. I just finished the 2nd of the 3 Pre-Tests with only one ticket miss so I will go try the real thing Monday or Tuesday.

    If I were in your shoes, I would hit the Boson Pre-Tests and read all of their explanations, research the real questions that threw me for a loop, and then take my 2nd attempt within the next 2 weeks.

    Good Luck, Based on that close of a miss, you're basically 99% there.

    The only problem is that if i didn't know what the correct answer was for the one i couldn't figure out (not even realising now) then will i go through the same thing again! That's the worry

    That is brutal! I failed switch by that % a little while ago. Hope you can tackle this again soon.

    Feel awful for you. I failed TVOICE by about 5 % or so when I took it in 2015 so very close to a pass; I was very annoyed but nothing I could have done about it.

    If you haven't already, I'd suggest you try the Boson ExSim for TSHOOT - might help out a little bit.

    Also, you may already have watched these but posting anyway:

    They're from the previous TSHOOT exam but I don't think things have changed too much for this iteration.

    Good luck. Hope you nail it next time around!
