I took the 300-115 SWITCH exam this Friday and was lucky to pass in my 1st attempt (scored 919. The exam was not that hard for me (few years in the field), but some questions were tricky.

I used the same exact "combined" approach for test preparations as what I did for CCNA Security. I started with videos - Chris Bryant (great starting point but I felt few things were missing) and Novodyne (more detailed and great demos). Every time I finished a section I tried to re-create the instructor demonstrations on my own with VIRL (hands-on labbing was of a great help, no questions about it).

Obviously what I added to the mix was a lot of reading - and not just the Cisco's Official Cert Guide (number 1), but also the Cisco's documentation (parts; I used 3750-X configuration guides). The documentation and videos was especially useful for the topics I have not heard before.

Hoping to give ROUTE a shot in the next few months, but this one looks like a real beast!

Good luck Folks.
