Hi guys
I have in my lab the following equipment:
2950, 2960G, 3550 and 3750G.
Will it be enough to test all the necessary features for 300-115 exam or should I look for another 3750s?

    You've got me beat. I only have 2 3550s and a single 2960.
    But Im still studying ROUTE

    I'm not familiar with the 2960G, but the 2950 and 3550 won't support Private VLANs, VTPv3, or IPv6. I would add a 3560 or 3750 to have at least 2 Layer 3 switches that support all CCNP topics.

    You should be able to get away with what you have (many have used similar). As stated above you won't get 100% coverage, however, the missing topics aren't that bad - just study up them a bit more since you can't lab them. I'm not sure the extra expense for 3560s is warranted for those relatively minor topics, but that is certainly your call.

    The 3750 should cover everything the 3560 does.
