    Default 300-135 TSHOOT A Few Questions, Tips, Suggestions?

    Passed ROUTE and SWITCH and starting on TSHOOT after the long weekend and I have a few questions (Be careful not to violate your Cisco NDA):

    It's not the easiest thing to google and find the office Cisco released TSHOOT topology. I see a forum post release back in 2010 and statements saying that it is still valid, but I can't find anything on Cisco to back that up. There's a few other links I found as well, some dead, etc.

    1.) Does anyone have a link to the official Cisco topology, or can confirm that within the last few months that the topology is the same for 300-135? I am guessing it won't potentially change again until all CCNP exams are updated, but the only typologies I've found are pre-300-135.

    2.) Apparently there are also multiple choice questions. Would those be more related to 1.0 in the exam topics like network principles and methodologies, or could they be any ROUTE or SWITCH troubleshooting topic?

    3.) How long did you study for TSHOOT before taking it after passing ROUTE & SWITCH?

    4.) There aren't many posts here on TSHOOT, especially lately. Any other tips or suggestions?

    I can't really thing of anything else at the moment. Thanks all.

    Just pick up the Boson 300-135 pretest. Its as close to the real thing you'll get, and it'll prep you on the MCQs. I spent a couple of weeks between passing ROUTE and taking TSHOOT.

    Sweet, I do already have the ExSim-Max for 300-135 TSHOOT that came with Global Knowledge course.

    I'll second the Boson T-shoot. It was really good prep for the kinds of questions they'll throw at you, and getting you to validate your troubleshooting methodology. The topology isn't exactly the same, but it's similar. It's also functionally similar, in that you can be looking at the topology, click on a device, and bring up the CLI. And you can also slide windows around to get multiple CLIs side by side, or CLI next to topology.

    It's also very obvious by the stated problem whether you're dealing with an IPv6 or IPv4 ticket to help narrow done which topology to use.

    For $100 you can get the official 300-135 lab set directly from Cisco. I used them before T-Shoot and they were well worth the money. It's 20 scenarios, spread cross 4 companies (topologies) and each scenario has 3-4 errors you need to find and correct. The lab is open for 50 hours or 180 days, whichever you burn up first.

    Man I just spent $2500 (CLCs) on CCIE content. Hmmm...

    Is it the same, or similar topology?

    I've never seen the CCIE content (can't look, too scared!) lol. Well for the 300-135 labs, there are 4 different topologies you will encounter (which I thought was really nice because it gave you exposure to a lot of design scenarios). But bro.. $2,500 to study for T-Shoot. Big baller. I think most anyone would need is the OCG $65, access to CBT for a month or so to watch all their T-shoot videos $84, the 300-135 labs $100. Mix that with reading white papers and on the job experience you will crush it. Total = $250 :/

    Lol, yes I spent $2500 for 5 CCIE content/lab packages but using 25 Cisco Learning Credits not real money. The CLCs are worth $100 each. The TSHOOT lab pack is only $100, or 1 CLC.

    We have CBT and access to books including the OCGs. Nothing out of my pocket thank goodness.

    I was able to swap the TSHOOT course out for one of the other ones. Great suggestion, thanks again.

    Here's what I ended up with:

    Cisco Learning Labs for CCNP TSHOOT v2.0 50-hour 180-day Labs

    Routing and Switching Labs for CCNP to CCIE Progression

    Cisco Expert-Level Training for CCIE Routing and Switching v5.0: Starter Mini-Bundle

    Cisco Expert-Level Training for CCIE Routing and Switching v5.0: Advanced Mini-Bundle

    Cisco Expert-Level Training for CCIE Routing and Switching v5.0: The Preassessment Lab

    If you passed the ROUTE recently and have experience with switching then the T-shoot should be a breeze for you.
    In life you have to make your own opportunities. Don't let anyone stop you from your dreams to many negative people want you to fail because they can't succeed.

    Ha, I also am using:

    Global Knowledge TSHOOT Course

    CBT Nuggets Lectures and Labs

    Udemy TSHOOT (Listening to it in car on commute to work)


    @dmarcisco It's been 3 months since I took ROUTE so Imma brush up with these courses first. Plus I'm usually slow at tests, so the more I know the faster I will be.
