TSHOOT FAQs & Tips

May 7th, 2018 in TSHOOT v2 Go to comments

TSHOOT is one of the three exams in the CCNP certification. The TSHOOT exam is a chance for you to review your knowledge about ROUTE & SWITCH exams and test your troubleshooting skill. From the comments here and other places, this article tries to summarize all the TSHOOT frequently asked questions to save you some time. Please feel free to ask anything that you are unclear about TSHOOT so that all of us can help you. I will update this article frequently to bring you the newest information about this exam.

1. How much does the TSHOOT Exam 300-135 cost? And the passing score of TSHOOT?

It now costs $300.

The passing score of TSHOOTv2 is 846/1000

2. Please tell me how many questions in the real TSHOOT exam, and how much time to answer them?

Unlike other Cisco exams, the TSHOOT exam tests your ability to troubleshoot the problem so in this exam you have to solve about 6 – 7 multiple choice questions, one small sim (called simlet) and troubleshooting 12 “tickets”. Each ticket is a problem about a specific technology used in Cisco routers or switches.

You will have 135 minutes to answer them. If your native language is not English, Cisco allows you a 30-minute exam time extension (165 minutes in total).

3. Am I allowed to study the topology used in the real exam and where can I find it ?

Yes, you are! Because the purpose of this exam is testing a candidate’s ability to troubleshoot issues, not to understand a complex topology so Cisco publicizes the topology used in the real TSHOOT exam. You can find the topologies at https://www.networktut.com/share-your-tshoot-v2-0-experience.

To save time on the exam, and to better understand the topology used in all of the trouble tickets, you should spend time familiarizing yourself with the topology used in the exam.

4. Where can I find the demo of this exam?

There is a very good demo of TSHOOT exam published by Cisco and you can find it at http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le2/le37/le10/tshoot_demo.html. But notice that the topology in this link is not the topology used in the real exam. This demo is also a good practical topology and we also explained about the configuration of this demo in four articles: Frame Relay Point-to-Point SubInterface GNS3 Lab, EIGRP over Frame Relay and EIGRP Redistribute Lab, VLAN Routing and HSRP IP Route Tracking.

5. During the exam, we must only identify the problem or we must also make the correct configuration?

We are only allowed to choose the solution for the problem. We are not allowed to make any changes on the routers and switches. You cannot enter global configuration mode (config)# either. You have to answer three types of questions in each ticket:

+ Question 1: Which device causes problem
+ Question 2: Which technology is used
+ Question 3: How to fix it

6. Can someone please tell me in the real exam it gives the ticket names just like in this site (for example “Ticket 1 – OSPF Authentication “) or is it going to say ticket 1 , ticket 2 only?

It only says ticket 1, ticket 2 only so you have to use your troubleshooting skill to figure out where the problem is. This is also the purpose of this exam.

7. Please give me some guideline when using the TSHOOT simulator.

Below is some guideline when using the TSHOOT simulator in the exam.

7. Can I go back in the TSHOOT exam?

As shown in the above question, you can press “Previous Question” to go back to previous questions in the same ticket only. If you press “Done” button then you can’t come back to this ticket anymore.

Note: In TSHOOT 300-135 (TSHOOTv2), the “Abort” button no longer exists. That means you cannot cancel a ticket after choosing it. You have to complete that ticket before moving to another one.

8. Can we take TSHOOT exam before the ROUTE or SWITCH exam?

Yes, you can. There is no order to take these exams. But the TSHOOT exam tests your skills to troubleshoot router & switch errors so I highly recommend you to take the ROUTE and SWITCH exams first. The TSHOOT exam is very good to review your knowledge of what you learned in ROUTE & SWITCH.

9. Can I solve the tickets in any order I want, for example, I solve Ticket 8 first, then Ticket 3, Ticket 1…?

Yes, you can solve them in any order until you click Done button. After clicking Done you cannot go back to this ticket again. Also notice that when you entering a Ticket, you have to solve it (answer all 3 questions) before moving to another ticket.

10. As I see there are 3 topologies in the exam. My question is to how to find which topology to use when doing a troubleshooting ticket. Does it clearly state in exam which topology to use (layer 2 or layer 3, for example)?

In the exam, it doesn’t say clearly which topology you need to use. But a reader on networktut.com has shared this tip:

“There is no really best way to choose which topology to use.
This is my style:
Most of the time I was using the IPv4 topology as it contains most of the nodes with ip addresses and in the cause of your troubleshooting and you discovered that you need more details on the ASW1 & 2 switches that is when I used the Layer 2 topology except for the IPv6 topology.
Any node on IPv4 topology that is in Layer 2 topology have same configuration irrespective of where you click on the nodes.
Study all tickets here and use the following elimination style below:
List out all the trouble ticket on the white little board you will be giving and tick each ticket as you answer them because this will let you know which tickets are remaining to look out for.”

11. In the exam can I use “traceroute” or “tracert” command?

According to some reports, “tracert” commands cannot be used on Clients but “traceroute” command can be used on DSW1. But of course you can use “ping” command. According to some candidates’ reports on the exam, maybe you should not believe too much on the output of the traceroute command in the exam.

12. Please let me know in the exam can we issue “pipe” commands such as: sh run | section eigrp; sh run | begin router?

No, you cannot use “pipe” commands in the TSHOOT exam.

13. Does each ticket state it is an IPv4 or IPv6 issue?

Yes, it does! But it does not clearly state that. Please read each ticket carefully, if it states like this “loopback address on R1 (2026::111:1) is not able to ping the loopback address on DSW2 (2026::102:1)” then surely it is an IPv6 ticket. Otherwise it is an IPv4 ticket.

14. Why in each ticket I only see the same description, same wording, either ticket 1, 2 or 3. How can I see the difference or the problem of each ticket?

The descriptions of each ticket are very identical to each other. In general the very long description can be summarized “Client 1 cannot ping the 209.65.200.241” (for IPv4 ticket), that’s all! So you have to use your troubleshooting skill to find out where the issue (it is also the meaning of this exam – TSHOOT). The only obvious difference among the tickets is the statement “loopback address on R1 (2026::111:1) is not able to ping the loopback address on DSW2 (2026::102:1)”, which indicates an IPv6 ticket.

15. Why don’t I see any questions and answers on networktut.com? I only see the explanation…

Because of copyrighted issues, we had to remove all the questions and answers. You can download a PDF file to see the questions at this link: https://www.networktut.com/questions-and-answers

    Does anyone know if the ‘traceroute’ command is enabled in the exam or is it just ‘ping’?

    August 22nd, 2018

    Passed today- 940/1000 only. Some MCQ are brand new. All tickets seems to be valid.
    HSRP SIMLET – One question has different answer – dhcp issue (between R4-R5).

    TT Bugs during IPv6 ping are in place.
    Premium account is still very recommended to PASS.

    August 28th, 2018

    Guys,

    failed today, 7xx points
    I got 22q:
    HSRP simlet, 12 tickets and 9 MCQ.
    All MCQ were quite new, not from this site.
    No BGP simlet
    In some tickets answers were not the same as from this site.
    In the first ticket the issue might be in route redistribution or EIGRP passive, but everything is set in correct way.
    route-map was set on R4 as OSPF->EIGRP permit 20
    there wasn’t passive interface default on R4
    What I noticed – default route was not advertised to DSW1.
    On DSW1 was passive-interface default, but there wasn’t any answers for this switch.

    We need a new version of MCQ and tickets.

  21. BS
    August 28th, 2018

    all mcqs changed.
    Labs are the same.

    questions about: IPSec and GRE, telnet port 3033, different about password en secret, whats happend when you see “Configuration register is 0x2102”
    Which tunnel protocol don’t tunnel ip traffic

  22. SKy

    When will the new questions be updated on site? I was thinking about do the test next week, I had 100% on tickets, 100% on labs on the first try, my only fear are those questions.
    Anyone know the percentage for this test? How much for Tickets, How much for labs and how much for MCQs?

  24. SB
    August 29th, 2018

    Do NOT schedule the test if you are relying on this site solely as we need time for people to update the MCQ with the new questions and answers, they are ALL different
    I 2 got 22q, HSRP simlet, 12 tickets and 9 MCQ, No BGP simlet
    All MCQ were NEW
    Tickets answers were not the same
    For me the A/DSW1 tickets were hard to TS, remember to scroll down on the 2nd question of the ticket, there are a lot of options(possible answers)
    Correct, there wasn’t passive interface default on R4
    MCQ on Telnet port 3033 is about access list which use
    register is 0x2102” is memory full issue
    Had, multiple routing and without routing which tunnel transfer MCQ
    Had, password for level 15 query MCQ
    One MCQ about time for noc access 6 pm to 6 am

    correct time range on time based ACL´s
    Which routing protocols support TLV´s and fastreroute
    Some VPN/GRE questions
    Show version of a c2800. Customer want´s to move from telnet to SSH

    @Anonymous

    Lab 12 is related to IPv6, and it’s pretty simple to identify the issue with it.
    My concern was for new issue/ticket related to R4 DSW1 connection.

    In the real exam I faced with this issue, spent 40 min to isolate the issue.
    EIGRP is established between R4 and DSW1, routes were advised to DSW1, except the default route. The default route on R4 is received via OSPF from R3.
    The route map was applied to exchange EIGRP and OSPF routes.
    This is why I guess it’s not a DSW1 issue, it’s related to R4 route map

    Passed to today exactly 846. Just get lucky.
    Which statement is true (choose two)

    enable password has higher preference than enable secret
    enable secret has higher preference than enable password
    You can use both ……………………. (dont remember complete statement)
    enable password is easy to decipher
    enable secret is easy to decipher

    telnet 3033,

    Which tunnel protocol support dynamic routing /multicast and non-IP traffic
    GRE
    Easy VPN
    GET VPN
    IPSec

    extended traceroute question, were a bit tricky. choose two
    dont remember the options

    I could differenciate ipv6 questions by reading the scenario, like ipv6 200::111 etc. Eith Client 1 and Client cannot ping were there. It was a common scenario for all tickets.

    “show ip bgp summary” did not show any result. i were expecting 209.56.x.x so i manually checked it.

    Just happy to pass this exam. Thank you this site to make me ccnp certified today.

  36. what??
    September 3rd, 2018

    GRE doesn’t support nonIP? are you mad???? this is one of the main attractions of GRE! It can tunnel ANY protocol!

    guys follow all the lab questions and MCQs. don’t memorise every thing, try to catch base of the question.

    in IPv6 lab questions kindly follow @someone method(the comment published above somewhere). Its works well real exam and networktut mentioned lab questions.

    @Someone, thanks your method.
    for those who cant find the @someone method. I copied it for you below.

    don’t type command ”ping” in exam doesn’t work
    use command ” sh ipv6 ospf” neigh from R3
    r3 ( 1 neighbor — inter face tunnel ) —–> problem R2
    r3 ( 1 neighbor — inter face serial ) —–> problem R3
    r3 ( 2 neighbor — 2 inter face tunnel +serial ) —–> problem R4

    Dear Tshooters!

    I only realized last night that my certifications will expire in a week. So i booked this exam overnight, studied couple of hours from this site, and passed the exam today 986/1000. I am from operations environment so tshooting is daily life. However, great credits to this site for all the good work.

    All questions/tickets are well covered and presented under networktut.
    If you go through this well, nothing to worry for now!

    The tickets given for use with packet tracer it seems like no matter what I do cannot ipv6 ping between r4 and any of the layer 3 switches the routes appear but not successful pings to any interface between the dsw and rtf 4

    Is that a problem with Packet tracer?

    I failed today the ipv6 questions got and I took too much time figuring out how to navigate the test. I didn’t get any buttons that seemed to allow me to skip a ticket and come back to it so I got stuck and it took more time I only finished 19 of the 22 questions I missed one on the simlet got thrown on ipaddress dhcp so I am pretty sure I’ll get it next time thank in advance on any help with the question on how to skip and come back on questions and if ping ipv6 is broke in packet tracer between dsw and r4
